But I'm on my phone... Can't they just read this topic? I'm pretty sure Mr. Rod already has done n Yama will anyway. Wasted effort on my part.

I never understood why people care about post counts.

I agree on merging your guy's accounts though, so it's easier to look back on everything you have ever posted. (That hasn't been deleted of course)

I liked having a post count under our names just so you could tell from a name and avatar you didn't recognize if they was new or not. Some people want to be top of the post count list which is just stupid.

I don't really. Just when you delete the forum it's also deleting history of the place and be nice to have just some remnant of that history. However I like the idea of NOT showing post counts in posts. Notice I did the same at my site.

As this community grows older (approaching the 15 year mark now) the historical aspect of the forums will always be at the forefront of our minds, whenever changes are proposed and acted upon. Of course its important to preserve what's documented here, and its absolutely essential that its looked after and never deleted. I cannot speak for past administrations (or even this one) but since i helped out with the scrutinisation of the junk forum before its deleted, you can take it from me that all topics that exist in there have been looked at. A protocol was in place, that all topics over 4 pages would be moved to the relevant forums by default. Also, the past 5 pages of topics were looked at post by post to ensure all merging, moving, and deletion would take place correctly, and that nothing of any sort of value was lost. In fact, no offence, but a lot of the topics in there really shouldnt have been. The majority were moved to General Discussion and General Gaming. It just shows how badily this place had become, where people felt the need to post valid topics in there instead of posting them in the correct forums.

In terms of the history itself, well, i dont know about anyone else here but if i think of "history of the dojo" i think of drama, run-ins, members leaving and general arguments that all accumilate to shape these boards to the way they are today. Ironically these all involve you Bluecast when you were a staff member. I also think of Hellraisers tenure as site owner. The Junk forum was deleted around 2007 (why i cant remember, nor know why), but since then, all the arguments that have taken place have majorally all stemmed from issues with the staff/admin section. Members left because of this. These are points in the Dojos history that should be remembered for all the wrong reasons. Topics regarding these instances, have been preserved and in come cases locked to ensure total preservation.

The point i am trying to make is that the Dojo, and its history should not be composed of instances like this. This is what we mean in saying what we are trying to work towards. Dojo history from this point onwards should be things that should be remembered like, for example, a Shenmue Announcement, or outside of those forums, OL getting engaged. Thats real Dojo history. Not someone getting banned because they didnt like the soundtrack to YS or because they disagreed with a member being made admin when he had posted pictures of his ass crack.

The junk forum will be gone soon, and i see it as a let go of the tormented past that we have had here. its a new beginning. A bright, fresh start. It should have been like this 2 years ago with the revamp, but teething troubles aside, the cracks have been filled, and the foundations restored. We should try and forget the troubled past, and start concentrating on getting along and making some positive history for this place to stand upon.

^ You just reminded us that we are all pioneers in a new kind of society. Interwebz is still new, and therefore as it gets older, it will become a lost city, and all this will become treasure. Ergo, we're going to need Dojo historians in a few decades to write us into the new gaiden of mankind.
