Usefulness of subforums

  

19 members have voted

  1. 1. Do you think the Off-topic subforums should be combined with OT?



Recommended Posts

 

Remember this date: 7/17/16, the day OT banished the oppressive subforums from their board.

the turkey coup may have failed, but the great TIF OT coup of 2016 has been a resounding success!

 

In our benevolent mercy, former dictator Randox will not be put to death; but will instead be sent to exile in General Discussion, to live out her days on the "200mil in all skills" thread

 

 

Boris5000, aka the subforum apologist, is also exiled :P

Where did all the dead threads go? Just buried under the weight of other OT threads?

So far only the threads that were actually being used have been folded into the main OT section. The old subsections and threads are still there, just hidden from public view while we discuss which others to keep. With one or two exceptions no one has posted in any of remaining threads in over 3 years though, so it's unlikely any of them will be missed.

 

Once we're done, Randox will then send what remains off to the land of wind and ghosts that only admins know about.

THE place for all free players to connect, hang out and talk about how awesome it is to be F2P.

So, Kaida is the real version of every fictional science-badass? That explains a lot, actually...

Why not just bring them all across? OT has plenty of historical threads itself (from 2005)...and it's not like it would hurt anything.

He's talking about the stickies, which include things like the rules for the Sports Subforum, which really doesn't need to be moved. Some of the other pinned threads are more relevant, but are essentially unused. Perhaps for the sake of historical interest I'll simply unpin them and move them over as well, so that people can still look them up, or revive them.

Like the new player and advanced player guides, or something else? If you just want the body of the main posts, unless you were hoping to see the entire threads, in which case I'm sure I can find someplace to plop them down where others can see them.

I was hoping the prune would extend to the whole site. I think you can condense this whole forum down to 4 different sections

Off topic

The main body would be great, should be the one with the explanation of the rank system and the different titles you can unlock

I would love to have those guides back as well. I still avidly play ArenaScape and I'm a bit sad that the old links no longer work and I can't find information about the game :(.

I'm not sure I found what you were looking for. In particular, I don't see anything in the old ArenaScape discussions board that pertains to the rank system. I moved the only two threads I could find that pertain to the game rules into Forum Games as locked stickies.

 

If you guys have links to any of the threads that you are looking for that no longer work, send them my way. If the threads still exist on the forums, those links will work for me.

Yeah but it was only OT voting, it wouldn't be fair to change the whole skeleton of the site based on 19 regulars from OT.

 

I was mostly concerned with being able to necro old threads for fun. Because who doesn't love a thread revival from half a decade ago every once in a while?

I mean you could just remake a thread, unless there was some really funny conversations that are worth necroing to show changes in culture or perhaps some good or infamously bad predictions

Or just good old fashion trolling. Sometimes I really miss the troll accounts running amuck
