Time to clean up this place!@

Ok people … guess it is time to clean up Lands of Axeoth.

I would like your input and perhaps later on your help on how to do this (I know several members that have already volunteered to help around on HC).

I will give some examples:
Note: for most threads we will need to copy and paste posts from other threads into one.

* Make one big walkthrough thread for Homm4 campaigns.

* A thread about the problems that occurred in the game.

*  A thread about the multiplayer patch.

* A thread about Homm4 (not 3DO) made maps.

* A strategy thread for towns (perhaps this one should better go into the Library btw).

* A thread about new classes of heroes (again perhaps Library material).

* add some more idea’s here please……..

* ……………………..

Well I Think u get the drift.

What I would want from members that want to lend a hand is:
* feedback on how to clean up and categorize the forum;
* member names that want to help on the actual cleaning up and combining of threads (lots of work).

Only serious posts in here. All other posts will be deleted.


Thankx,

Hexa

You have a members name, it is Celfious.

----------------------------------------

Feedback. 2 reasons why deletion of threads is frowned upon
1: Ideas & thoughts lost
2: post count.

Reason 2 shouldn't even be an issue!
I say clear out all the threads
1: Which were just a question, and an awnser
2: Obviously belong in another forum (move those not delete)
3: Are ideas which had near no response rate. These types of threads could go in a thread where HC has 48 hours to object to deletion.

After this is done (this is only my idea) the entire lands of axeroth could be catigorized much easier.

If there is dispute about post count lost, we could propse to VAL to somehow let us keep them. If he wants to talk to me about incentive all I ask is an IM.

Do you have the ability to make some threads "sticky" so that they stay at the top of the listing?  That would make them collect the common questions / comments instead of people starting new threads (not that I understand why new threads are a problem).

Not that I know of.

It guess it would be possible to change the HTML of a Forum so we link to a particular thread or HTML file, just as we link to REGISTER PROFILE FAQ/RULES and so on. This would have about the same effect as sticky threads, but thi linking would not be one of the 20 threads normally displayed on a Forum.

Too bad.  I've seen that to be very effective on some other forum boards.   Only other option that occurs to me would be for moderator to post a "top" or "boot" message every now and then to some central, very general discussion / hint threads.  

Not something I think you'd appreciate the general public doing though<G>.

The problem is, though, like they said, that threads can sink down...down...down into the depths of the higher-number pages...which would pretty much defeat their purpose. However, if a Table of Contents ever happened, in the Table those threads could be just there on their own, with their sort of "private section" so that no other threads will crowd them.

Perhaps there is a way to set a thread to always stay on top? If not, then maybe there should be a "mini-forum" in the Lands, that has these threads and these threads only? Of course, the goes back to the Table of Contents idea as well...

I agree with Xenophanes, there shouldn't be just threads about various matters, because in a way they already exist, but "mini-forums" on questions, strategies, tactics and other stuff, so you could pick your choice right from the start when you enter the forum instead of browsing dozens of pages lookking for it and asking yourself (as I have): if I post my question here, will it be answered or no one will notice it, since this is not the right place for it...

Now that's using some iniative HALT. ::evil grin as he draws his Magic Mod's Dustbuster:: I hereby dub thee "Keeper of the Campaign Threads" here in Axeoth.

Perhaps others would like to step up and make 'mini-Indexes' of some of the various subjects above?

Unless/until Val makes some basic changes to the programming on the site, this is probably the best way to handle this. (One of my dearest wishes as a mod has been the abilty to merge threads or move a single post to another thread. Alas, so far it remains but a dream.)

eh Unka that ain't exactly true.
What Halt did was half of what was needed for the campaigns walkthrough tread.

The next thing to do is make on new thread in which one member combines elements from the other threads into one nice walkthrough.

I wil then delete the threads that HALT has sought out for us. That way we will finaly begin to see some structure in the Land Of Axeoth.

Similiar actions can be taken by other members with different threads that show similarity.

If someone wants to take this load of work please post here so that we won't have 2 people doing the same thing.
