Consolidating the dead child-boards
« on: April 12, 2018, 12:47:23 PM »
Something that has been on mind recently, so I decided to make a thread for it and see what Eric and everyone else thinks. My issue is that currently the Aurora Fiction sub-forum is cumbersome and awkward to browse - especially on phone but on desktop too - because of the large number of child-boards for authors. If they were all active, that would be one thing, but many of them haven't been posted in years and years.

Would it be feasible to consolidate all the dead (no posts by "owner" in 3 years) under a single child-board titled something clever, so that only currently active authors would have their personal sub-boards would have them directly under Aurora Fiction?

So for example Steve has last fiction post made 26 April 2016. But Vandermeer hasn't posted since 29 November 2014. Kurt hasn't posted since 2012. Beersatron hasn't posted since 2010.

I don't know if this is technically feasible or extremely cumbersome, but it would highlight the more active campaigns to new readers and make navigating the child-boards bit easier in my opinion, while still preserving the old campaigns.

was thinking about the same some time ago as I started with the forum...

maybe some kind of "Archive" thread which parent all the abandoned/unused "child-boards" would be great
