person above you part freakin' long
This is very useless. At the very least, it NEEDS to be restarted. But really I don't see why it should stay.

what I imagine you to look like - as funny and entertaining as this is, with 44 pages, it needs to be restarted, but the creator hasn't been around much so I don't know what to say.

Of course, this is not for me to decide, and I will have to accept your decision, but might I object to the deletion (I know it's just nominated) of the Girls = Meat thread and the Debatable Inn? The first provides some vivid and well-researched discussion of an interesting and important topic, I'd consider the second one of the best threads ever existing in Minas Tirith. Let it sink into the archive, but the thoughts and discussions presented there helped to shape the ideas of many members here, it also got into some very complex issues.
I know we have to remodel the City from time to time, and some of the buildings are really useless and just too big - but why would anyone want to tear down wonderful, ancient cathedrals?

If you decide to delete those, please give us a fair time of warning.

I have both saved, Bele [] So there is a fall-back if they get deleted with little warning.

This is a good idea WGW. I think we should have semi-regular Pony cleaning parties. We just do it rather haphazardly every so often now. I'll be back for my nominees later.

Belegurth: As I said, if anyone comes up with a good reason for keeping any thread, consider it saved. I'll note the first post that these are to be saved.

Everyone: BTW, I've been updating the first post, so check there for the most current list and decisions.

Woohoo, almost 20,000! []

I went through the entire Pony looking specifically for threads that I had started and I could delete, but the only one of any size was the "Final Chat Room" thread, and I have no idea if people still use it []

I'm sure I have a million more in the Pony Archives... do those need a cleaning as well? []

GtW: I wouldn't worry about the Pony Archive just yet.

All: Maybe we should come up with a general rule for how big a 'restartable' thread should get before it is restarted.

500 posts? 1000? Maybe it could be the decision of the Thread Master to choose, but they should put this number in the first post and try their best to stick to it.

WGW, I put that rule on all of my threads from now on.

Once it gets to 900 I will restart. I just restarted the Girls Room, the old one was up to 990.

Perhpas a new law of "Once a thread reaches ___ pages, it must/will be deleted." is in order? I actually thought that was a rule when I first got here, becuase most inns and threads were deleted/restarted after 40 pages or so. []

Ah, the Pipesmoke. I always enjoyed it, but alas, it was never too popular. I'll save and delete it later.

I've deleted Outlaws 15 and 16 (which were already saved to the geocities outlaws site)

However #17 and 18 haven't been saved yet... Will do asap []

EDIT: done with #18... I have a problem with #17, it doesn't upload properly... [] Well, I'll try again later, might be geocities which's got issues... I'll leave the thread here as back-up until I succeed in uploading it to geocities []
