Archives Annoucement - Everyone Please Read


This is gonna get longish, bear with me guys. emoticon

I just wanted to make you aware of a few things. I've just finished going through the archives and organizing things. I started last fall, but life got busy and I didn't really dive in until a few weeks ago. My goal was to make them a more efficient research tool, which is the point of having them to begin with.

I deleted redundant threads (eg. four threads asking "What glue?" & they all say "Bondini or Dap"), along with threads that had broken pics (and the pics were the subject) or broken links.

If you see that a thread of yours was deleted, it was likely due to lack of pictures. I did send out a bunch of PMs asking for people to repost pics in some threads, but I think the PM system isn't working right, as I only got one response. So it's either a glitch or nobody loves me.

If you care to repost your thread with the pics again, please feel free. Even if it's just to show off something you made two years ago or a WIP, it still belongs in the collective history if you want it there.

Also, if a thread of yours IS archived, and some (but not all) of the pics are broken, let me know if you want them put back up. I have a photobucket account that is purely for the archives, so if you want/need me to host pics that's fine. If you are posting a new thread and want me to put them there simply to assure you'll never delete them by accident, that's fine also.

I relabeled the titles of most of the threads to make the subject matter more apparent. Also, the search engine (top right for those who haven't used it before) only searches by thread titles, NOT by the content in the thread. So labeling them clearly should help with that.

You may notice some that have been edited by Blackbat, not me. It was still me, using his computer. Only admins can edit admin posts, so if it was him or Brin I couldn't edit. I know, not a big deal, just giving a heads up.

Threads that have instructions, advice or helpful information have been stuck to the top of their respective forums for quick reference.

I edited a lot of tutorials & informative posts for the purpose of making them easier to read. I didn't edit the content, only added line breaks to large blocks of text and fixed up the grammar & spelling.

This was also to help out our foreign brothers. I imagine it's difficult to look up a translation when the word is misspelled, or follow instructions if the punctuation is missing. Considering the dangerous materials many of us use, having things written clearly is safer for everyone.

I hope no one is offended if I edited their post, please consider it a compliment that your post was informative enough that I thought it was worthy of being cleaned up a bit. I figure if anyone cared enough to write a tutorial, they would want it to be as clear as possible for everyone to use.

And if any of you come across a post that is very helpful, but could use some line breaks or whatever, please point it out to me. I didn't get the idea until I was maybe 80% done, so it's possible I missed things.

By the way, I must say that in reading many of these threads so carefully as I was editing, I found myself beyond impressed with some of them. There are some downright brilliant people here, and their contributions deserve a lot of credit. I'll admit to having only skimmed many of them before, usually only checking enough to see if it was directions and then moving it to the right archive. But editing forced me to truly read & understand them, and I've learned a lot in the past few weeks.

So I guess that's all for now, unless I think of something I forgot to put here. I hope you guys can get some use out of the archives, there really is some great stuff in there. For those of you who haven't even taken a peek, go look around. You might find something that inspires you, or helps you find an answer to your all-consuming Batman questions. emoticon

Steve, I just think Zane's trying to get access to the "secret archives" on the board. You've certainly got to do some brown nosing to get in there.

Thanks for the work, Heather, my dear. emoticon

Hey now, Zane isn't brown-nosing! Unlike some people, he actually appreciates & utilizes well organized research information. And even if he was, I don't mind it one bit. A girl likes to hear she's appreciated sometimes and flattery gets you everywhere. You'd be wise to learn that, Captain Crankypants McGinnis. emoticon

Zane, thank you for your kind words, you always make me feel like I'm not wasting my time in maintaining the archives. emoticon

Jon, thanks sugar, you know what your opinion means to me. emoticon

Sorry I haven't been online much this weekend, but thanks guys. You're very sweet. emoticon

Eric, do you think the pics were maybe broken on your glove tutorial? If they were, I might have deleted it. Sorry. emoticon If you want to you can post it again, and I can host the pics in a place where they won't get moved by accident.

Thanks Tony. emoticon

Eric, I see now why your thread wasn't in the archives - it hasn't been archived yet! It's still in the main forum. emoticon Which is good, because I could have sworn I didn't delete it and thought I was losing my mind. So good, glad that's been cleared up. Your thread will probably get archived in a month or two, unless you want me to do it now.
