I would never just up and delete threads. They are all in general.

Why not just lock Junk now so no-one can post in it while you look through the topics? Or will that stop people from looking at it?

it's not that it's just if archived it would be much easier to navigate, a lot of these threads will be hard to find through the general forums

search and subscribe every thread made in the creative forum? I know I currently lack a social life but that's kind of pushing it :???:

A decent amount of them could be active or built upon, so to archive them would take away that option from the author. This is why I went with merging instead of archiving.

BTW with less forums the board should run smoother. Seems to be on my end, which is a big reason why we're doing this to forums that are inactive.

Is there an option to "auto-subscribe" to any thread you post in on this forum software? It's something that's easy to set up on vBulletin forums for example...

Top-left of the boards is a "view your posts" option. It's quite easy to find and shows every topic you have posted in, in newest-post first order.

Here is the link to it which you can bookmark if you're too much of a spaz to find it yourself:

Sounds like it might work in the same way. I personally just use "Unread Posts" as "New Posts" just seemed to list everything from all forums in last post order. I'll take a closer look when I get home and can use the computer. I have to turn off images on my phone so I can't navigate as efficiently.

Where were the Shenmue cast interview threads moved? I don't see them. Peter arranged for at least three actors to visit us, and they should be easy to find should they return.

[EDIT] Ok. Found them neatly put together in the Shenmue Forum. Maybe "Cast" should be added to the forum description, or a sticky link placed in each Shenmue forum, since it is not intuitive that interviews with actors from Shenmue 2 should be found in the "Chapter 1" forum.
