How long should we wait before we "archive" topics?
« on: September 22, 2010, 08:30:27 am »
I was thinking after a month of no posts we should move old topics into the archive. What do you guys think?

Maybe 1 or 2 months. We should also consider which type of threads to delete. Like perhaps threads with no replies.

I'm okay with deleting topics w/o any responses. Not sure how I feel about deleting topics with replies though.

I don't think it's so much time as activity, but if it's been past a few months, I think it should be archived.

Well that's what I mean. If a topic hasn't been posted in in over a month, it's no longer active.

When I posted that, I had this thought that there was a difference between the activity and time, but them I realized they were the same thing.

LOL. :D

Yeah, I think it's a good idea. Though I , if an archived topic comes up again (like things that have to be held off on because of location/other factors), should we pull the old thread back up or start fresh discussion?

yeah, if an archived topic were to become active again, we'd bring it back out.

I would only recommend deleting those that have not been responded to, otherwise archiving after 1 month seems sensible.

I'm not sure, I think the forum will act as an archive without us running an extra section. It might be good to keep older topics available to avoid the forum looking empty and so that it's easier to see the section it is part of. Perhaps they should be locked, but I think topics may often need to be talked about later. Although the existing pages can cause confusion about what is new.

I think we don't need an Archive's board. As much as they are inactive, they are topics of a certain category. Merging them all into the archives would mess things up a lot since we'll have all the board's inactive topics in ONE board.

Yup! I support removing the archives board too. Let's start moving topics mods!

My iPod is acting up wicked right now. I need to head to my parents to update the software before I can even think about trying to move mass topics.

Oh yeah, do we have to leave a "Moved" thread behind?

Man, I feel terrible - I know absolutely nil about web tech and thread movement! I'll just have to stick to excessive posting  ;)
