I doubt it's actually significant. Aside from the bully being the one with the american tag...

Back on topic:

How about an "Archive" board for say, old stickeys, informational threads like the "definitive list of times trey picked his nose onstage" and whatnot. the archive board could be broken down into useful subboards as well. Then we could have an archive for old tour project threads and whatnot, too.

interesting, but i think it would be too cluttered.  i agree that the old stickies should be placed somewhere, i'll come up with something when i have a few moments...

I must admit that I've shamelessly stolen the idea from taperssection.com

that key is that threads in the archive board are all read-only for all but admins.

so, basically the archive and it's sub-boards mirror (roughly) the structure of the rest of the site.

Does TS.com archive all threads to read only archive forums after a certain amount of time?  What threads get chosen for archival?  Whats the difference in having them in an archived state of read only and having them on page 24 of the category theyve always been, ready for a bump?

If a sticky doesnt need to be sticky anymore, why not just unsticky it and let it fall off the page?

Seems like the archive makes most sense if youre also purging old threads. 

Im hip to the idea but would like to hear how others have implemented it.  I dont know how I feel about purging threads that havent been posted to in x amount of time.

In their case, the archive reflects useful reference material that has ben churned up in discussions or even single posts that contain valuable information. Much of that site is, of course, focused on technical knowledge and so, in their archive board there is a child board of key postings that come from the microphone forum and a child board with key posts from the pre-amps 7 processors board etc.

For week4paug, I see it as this:

archive:
-Phish reference materials
 -definitive *blah* list threads.   (this stuff probably becomes irrelevant once the wiki is live)
-bt posting
 -complete projects
- technical help
 - how to bt
 - how to convert x to y

etc.

the idea being to keep old stickeys and other threads that may no longer need updating in an area that is even easier to find than wading through search results.


Perhaps, tho, it's not needed here.

A CHICK THREAD!  :-D

 :beers:
Honestly though, this whole post whoring thing is getting to be a little ridiculous.  But does having a higher post count make a cooler pauger?

Fewer stickies in the General Topic forum.
There are 9 right now...

Do they all need to be stickies?
Do they all need to be in THAT forum?

Aug's DD thread was awesome, don't mistake me. See my earlier posts about an Archive board.
Name That Jam? Dead.
md5, ffp thread? tech Support.


At this point, when I login from a mobile device, I have to go to page two of the General topics forum to find  the first of the regular, active threads. Page one is, now, ALL Stickies.
