Thread: Uploading the Old Forum

    New era.

    Simply put.

    Not to mention the overwhelming amount of garbage and waste of space on the old forums.

    here's a thought

    so you guys will import all the messages into this board, nice, what if its all inserted under a toptier archive section, but threads still in its own subforums.

    Code:

    _ General Discussion
    _ Sports
    _ Forum games

    its still marked under the original posters, still linkable, still searchable (but you can choose to filter it out), but locked

    its permanently archived, safe from loss, but anyone can reference and quote those messages in a fresh new thread on the regular subforums

    This seems like a pretty good idea. I think it's definitely worthwhile to ask everyone how they think the old forum content should be preserved once we are ready to update the new forums DB.

    I disagree with Zot that we shouldn't merge the old forum content onto the new forum. There is a huge difference between being able to view an archive of a forum, and being able to enjoy and interact with that content on a new forum, the same new forum that the old community is using to keep in touch and stuff.

    I like the idea of preserving the old stuff, but just starting fresh with new threads. I mean, we've already recreated and updated many of the threads we used to post in, so it's not like we need to import the old threads to replace them. I think this subforum archive is a swell idea.
    With every step of our tortured staggering, dread sloshes to and fro in the buckets of our hearts.

    I modified your suggestion slightly and would be up for something like this.. The idea is to have the content to mov forward and with the hopes that the/a game is made to keep this community growing. Over the past 13 years there have been great threads, good suggestions, trolls and other abominations, and of course worthless shit. But I think if we archived the stuff but made the useful things exist as others discover taoforums and reconnect it will be nice to see their history and reconnect with their own accounts. Personally I have 5 accounts I would like merge and reactivate as one. But thats just cause I got banned alot for voicing opinions
    I also disagree with Zol and really like the concept of your idea Lux, it will definitely be a work in progress and once hosting actually goes down on tacticsarena.com we can review more closely the desires of the community rather than just my opinion.

    Hey now, I'm fine with archiving the old forums.

    I just don't want them replacing the new threads on here, and if you created a thread from the old forum please reference the original thread creator.

    Thanks.

    Are we going to merge the old forum? Or at least make it a part of this one?

    I was hoping to scroll through some old archives just to reminisce if nothing else.
