 Board announcement-IMPORTANT--The Archives


Hello Brothers and Sisters,

If you're observant you may have noticed that I changed the name of the Archives section by removing the words "Closed Topics". It should be obvious from this that these topics are no longer closed. For many years the fact that these topics are closed has bothered me as original posters or those wanting to update threads were unable. Now if you have new info to add (like fixing broken photo links, adding new photos when you might use the info from a thread on your own etc. you can. It is my hope that this will help in keeping this place and the Archives in particular relevant. Now please keep in mind that these are likely very old threads and the original posting member may not frequent the board anymore so please do not try to turn these topics into discussions. They are still the Archives so please respect them as such.

You and the rest of the BOTB are welcome. It always bothered me that they were locked. What good are archives if people can't fix photo links or update on changes in a project, right? Many of our current "sacred archived threads" are useless now because the info in them is lost or no longer relevant.

That said, I would ask our members to let us know (email to me is the best method I can think of, please include a link) when looking around if they come across useless threads (in the archives) so we can on a case by case basis scrap out what no longer adds value. What I don't want to have to do here is assign a mod to go through every old thread and validate or invalidate them however if it's stumbled upon we can deal with it right away by first moving it to the Belfry then discussing it and if we deem it's lost it's value it will go bye bye forever.
