@SpongeJr:

How about if that goes in a couple of sticky posts in a pure Brainstorm and Ideas posts?

whew!
*wipes sweat off brow*

Ok, I think all of that is done. Now just to get to the hard part and actually move everything where its supposed to go XD

I'll start on that tomorrow (also, if you see I forgot something, got something wrong, feel free to tell me)

If you have any better suggestions for the names of the new forums & their descriptions, I'll have a new thread for that too.

Um....some of the new forums are still locked. Will they unlock tommorow? :?

(I am referring to ones like Drawing Board, Fan Fiction etc, not Admin Board xD )

Locked in the sense that I can't start new threads etc. Just to clarify. >.>

Yeah, I understand. I think I know what I did. Only some of them are supposed to be locked (Specifically the "container" forum for bug reports, and admin).

Should we have an archive forum for all dead threads that are a year or more old?

That should stop accidental and deliberate necromancy. Just a thought ;)

I was thinking of having something of a trashbin hidden forum where I could sweep away any one-time-use "garbage" threads cluttering up other boards; ie one where someone is all like "I found a bug!" and then after a few posts its determined that its not really a bug.

Ok, the broken permissions /should/ be fixed. Tell me if you encounter any more issues.

Several other board I've been on have had an Archive forum that no one can post to but everyone can read where old threads and other detritus get sent.

we have one for junk threads (threads that take up space but don't have any valuable information what-so-ever in them), however I set it to hidden so that it doesn't clutter up the index :P
And it's not like anything of any importance would be put there.
