In preparation for the planned site upgrade (details on that later as we're still planning), the moderator team will be deleting old topics.

Basically, anything that is no longer relevant will be deleted. So army lists and tactica for previous editions; news, rumors, and forum announcements that have either come to pass or been proven as incorrect; threads/topics with dead links (which includes anything that got the short end of the Photobucket straw); et cetera.

If you know of an old topic that you want to keep, post a reply in that topic with your request and an explanation. Necro-posting is normally frowned upon, but this will serve as a direct communication that will remove the topic from the back pages (where it is most likely to be deleted). If the topic is archived, send your request via PM (since you can't reply to an archived topic). The mods will make a determination as to whether or not a topic will be kept and will provide an answer by replying to the topic/PM. If the determination is to delete the topic, they will identify a date at which that will take place - giving you a week or two to save the topic for your own records.

You can expect Liber topics and Forge topics to be kept, as well as active projects.
 
We want to trim all of the dead weight, but we want to keep anything that is useful to the community.

I know at least a few posts of his I can think of that are posted in the CSM section (especially one that get referenced from time to time) but I haven't been able to find them unfortunately.

Edit: Its post 97, for some reason I can't generate a link to the post.

Yes, if we can save stuff from ADB, that would be great.  I will miss some of the old stuff, like the old "Way of the Water Warrior" from waaayyy back in the day with Grey Knights.  Also GreatCrusade08's scout stuff.  Those were great reads.

Found the "way of the water warrior" treatise; http://www.bolterand...-water-warrior/

 

Would it be possible to let the forums do a quick "give us a list of old stuff that is the best of the breed" for permanent storage/access, like a sticky or a subboard for the boards?  I'm sure the other forums all have their favorites.  Thanks.

Yeah, these are some but not all of ADB's which are definitely worth preserving. And giving communities time to select posts / threads to be saved before the purge would also be great.

If I might add my own one, which sparked a lot of great discussion and brainstorming - http://www.bolterand...rfectly-flawed/

As mentioned in the OP this is giving the community time, and as noted please post to the older topic directly to flag it for consideration or if it is archived PM an appropriate mod. This involves a fair amount of work from the B&C Team to prepare, so please try to help make that as easy as possible by following the instructions as detailed thumbsup.gif

Can we make sure to keep the collection of Inspiration Friday threads in the Chaos Marines forum? There is a lot of very cool forum member creativity and competition in those.

Also keep in mind that you can download/print threads that you may want to save on your own. 

 

The mods know the threads that are important to their specific forum and they will keep them. 

 

Liber and the PCA section are probably going to keep most of the threads too (those filled with broken links/images aside). 

 

But basically what we are looking to prune out is pre-8th edition stuff. We've done this before and if you have been around long enough you know this was a very regular happening. This is part of the process of preparing the server for the fixes we need to make.

Does the purge also include wip posts? As I am a slow painter, I can seldom update my wip thread.

No. WIP, Hall of Honour (as far as I know) and some other "long burn" topics and sub forums will stay. It's mainly discussion topics and stuff that is years out of date :)

Once, a Novice Cantus came to me, troubled and uncertain. A slip of a girl, only a few strides down the eternal path leading her to the Golden Throne. She asked me a question. She asked me how we can ever truly understand what faith is. I told her that there is no coin to measure what we feel in our hearts. There are no scales upon which we might weigh the faith of one woman against another. There is only duty and blood. There are only deeds and words. There is only the service to the God-Emperor, and the price that demands from each Sister can only be known by Him. But know that whatever fears must be faced, whatever hardships endured, that price is forever worth its full cost.

Daughter of the Emperor (later Imperial Saint Katherine)

Flag topics in there.

We might keep reviews of books and the constructive discussions, but many of the discussions will get the axe.
