we should add a memorial section for old topics that have been abandoned and newer updated any more


Recommended Posts

this would be  a great idea for the forum because it would move all the abandoned topics to the archive and make room for fresh new posts to get this forum back to it good old days! what does anyone think of this idea?

Why? its not like you somehow run out of room in a subforum. And moving anything old to an archive would:
A: prevent any responses if someone DID have something to add and...
B: disorganize the threads, as currently they exist in their appropriate subforums. For example if i want to find something about XP, i simply look around in the XP subforum. and...
C: break links to any archived threads as they've been moved.

The primary reason for archiving is to save space on the server. We are well past the point of that being useful.

No, whenever you move something, it is probable that you lose or damage something.

BUT something that could be useful - particularly to the new members - would be a curated list of (old and new) topics, something loosely similar to this post by MDGx (related to 9x/Me):

for others OS/subforums/sections of the board.
