In pruning the citizen list recently, I am painfully aware of the hoards of bad threads that can be deleted without anyone shedding a tear.

Since it is hard for me to scour every thread looking for bad ones, I created this topic for anyone who wants to nominate a thread for deletion.

Some advice. Don't bother nominating a thread with creative content. These have been deemed "protected threads", so don't worry. I'm not going to be deleting anyones mindless Inn. []

Also, long threads are nice to delete (as they save the most space), but they will also be harder to part with. If there is any decent conversation in it by active citizens, I would seriously hesitate before removing it.

A good candidate would be something like the old polls. Pages and pages with everyone posting a list of their top 20 characters could easily be removed.

BTW, when I am finished with a thread, I change the icon to [] so I can quickly scan what I have completed. FYI.

Here's one to start with. Who would you have fallen in love with?

It's 26 pages and I haven't gone throught them all. Would anyone like to investigate this thread and see if there is any sane reason to save it for all time?!?

WGW,
What about deleting the closed topics? The ones closed because of flaming and/or inappropriate subjects? Just a thought.

WGW: The only reason I could see to save the "Who would you have fallen in love with?" thread would be that it seems to contain one of Arra's first posts.

I keep some closed threads alive if they can teach us something should a similar situation arise.

And all Arra's posts aren't sacred. It's like if I die and my wife can't throw away my old ATM receipts. I wouldn't wish that level of mania on her.

If Arra posted "Welcome!" or "Thanks!" or "Aragorn, yummy!", I wouldn't feel bad about removing it.

Thanks for doing the legwork! I agreed and deleted most of them. I left two that might have a shred of interest to someone. Maybe I'll still delete them, but for now they stay.

Everyone: Please don't take it upon yourself to delete your old threads. You might delete something that is dear to someone. Feel free to recommend a topic, but leave the deleting to me.

The Dragon has quite a few threads that could go, they are mostly at the bottom of the pile. We could come up with a thorough list of recommendations.

Maerbenn had the right idea - a list of links for me to go through. If any are questionable, the link will be left and we can discuss them. And who do you trust more than me to know when a thread is worthless and when it is worthy?

I was. One was a valentine's day poll....one only had 5 replys and it was about snipe hunting. Another was about a funny smiley I found and it had only one page. Nothing important. The rest of them were about the same. I was very careful. I'm just not good at making threads.

It's funny, but I have conteplated deleting Snowdog's Inn a few times, mainly because I haven't the time to get to the site so much, but recently it was included on a list of 'great threads' for RP, and I and another have used it to complete a story I was writing, so it has stayed. This reminds me, I need to write more....

Maybe people should be given a little time to save the threads if you want to (as suggested by SSA to me on MSN).
