The Great Forum Reshuffle (0 Comments) (link)
 Monday, 19-February-2001  02:55:16 (GMT +10) - by Agg

Right, I've been hinting at this for a while now and have discussed it with a few Moderators and readers.. the forums have grown at a huge rate over the last few months, there's been a few outstanding things needing to be done and I've done them all at once. Here's what happened:
  • Manaz and Wolfy have been promoted to Administrator status. This means they no longer appear next to the forum names as moderators, but can moderate all forums and do behind-the-scenes stuff in the forum software. This is in recognition of the hard work they both do on a daily basis in the busiest forums and their involvement with the workings of the site. Thanks guys!
  • LoneWolf and Chris Nolan have become Moderators. LoneWolf will be helping out with most of the general forums while Chris is looking after a few of the specific-topic ones. Beast's responsibility has expanded to both specific-motherboard forums and the Case Mods forum.
  • The forums are now split into Community, General Topics, Specific Topics and Shop&Swap (Registration Required). This has meant a reordering of the forums. Hopefully this is a more logical arrangement and allows for traffic growth a little better.
  • The Trading Forum has been split into 2 forums - "For Sale" and "Wanted to Buy". This is due to the heavy traffic this Forum was experiencing - it wasn't unusual to get a full screen of new/modified threads in 6 hours.
  • Old topics from the Trading Forum are in the For Sale forum, but I have deleted those more than 30 days old. This was nearly 20,000 messages!
  • A few forum descriptions were updated - more of this will happen soon as we clarify the roles of each forum.
  • The PCDB forum was intended to be merged with the Site/Article/Review Forum, but after thinking about it I'll leave it for now. It might happen in the future.
I think that's it..
