Reorg in progress

Postposted on Sat Jul 16, 2005 11:05 pm

Just wanted to let all the current forum browsers know that things are going to be a little bumpy for the next hour or so. I'm starting to shuffle the forums as per the reorg thread. This shouldn't cause any problems. If you encounter any, feel free to drop me a note.

Thanks,

Kevin

Also, I should point out that over the next few days to a week, the moderators and I will be moving threads in large numbers to new forums. We won't be going through every forum, of course, but we'd like to clean out the first page of each forum and put things in their proper place. Mainly, this means that all the recent "help me build a system" or "what part should I buy" threads will be moved to the new System Builder's forum.

So if you can't find a post or a thread that you were participating in, check around the new forums, search for your previous posts, or ask a moderator for help. No threads will be deleted and no posts will be lost.

You should have left the locked Matrox Niche up for a while as a novelty...

I got a screenshot of it on the front page (it's linked in the Farewell thread), but didn't get in it in time.

(FWIW, I did get in the System Builder's forum before it was unlocked, so I know there WAS something interesting in the Matrox Niche - just the idea that it's locked, and stuff can't be put in.)

So, did anybody get a screenshot of the inside of the empty Niche for posterity?

Hmm... then how was I able to look in the System Builder's forum, which was most definitely locked?

Also, nice ninja edit, there, Alex. I've still got the ImageShack link in my history, though.

Not sure about the locked forum thing...

Don't worry about searching through your history, it's posted above. :wink:

The worst of the reorg is over. There are a few forums that I still want to work on (the monitor/photo type forums, mainly). Also note that this certainly isn't set in stone and we'll definitely be looking at this again in a few months to gauge traffic levels in the forums.

I'll be leaving all these threads on the reorg unlocked here in the announcements forum so please, feel free to add comments at any time. So take some time, look around the layout and see how it feels.
Being right doesn't matter if no one listens.
