"Memorable Thread" archive? (4)

1 Name: enchantedsleeper : 2012-10-16 02:34 ID:ckMoCW9A

I was going back through the archives of some of the BBS (did you know that the Fan-Works and Culture BBS has had nearly 500 threads in total over the years?) when it occurred to me that maybe there could be a "Hall of Fame" style archive for memorable old threads. It could be for threads that have reached 1000 posts and been closed, or simply for threads with say, over 500 replies that have been dead for (x) number of months. It might be one way to make the BBS's extensive archives more manageable to look through, as well as giving people something to aspire to :P

Would you have the threads moved to that board or duplicated on to that board?

It is a nice idea.

Good question. I guess it doesn't really matter either way though xD Duplicated maybe.

Regional BBSes - logic is where?? (18)

1 Name: enchantedsleeper : 2012-09-28 12:28 ID:Unmb/Flx

I've raised this issue twice before to the BBS creator, and maybe raising it now in a subforum won't do any good, but this area is empty so I thought I'd start up a discussion and get opinions on something that has bugged me for a long time. What is the logic behind the particular regions that get their own regional BBS? Why aren't the regional BBSes divided into more general areas like Europe, USA, Canada, Australia - something that would actually make the threads easier to sort through? Why create regional BBSes for Alberta, British Columbia and Ontario of all places? I would REALLY like to know the reasoning behind this and whether I'm the only one in this whole BBS that finds it strange.

This thread was also misplaced in the Lobby: http://www.fanbbs.net/lobby/kareha.pl/1290397687/ (One for the United States regional BBS). It's long dead but might be worth moving anyway. Weird to see a post from myself in that old thread. x3

I'll move those threads soon.

>how did you come to take over the BBS

I just emailed him about the spam. He was surprised anyone emailed him about it and thought it was a joke (mostly because of my email address). I told him I'd take it off his hands until he decided he wanted to do something with it and now we're here.

Well I am amazed. I got a pretty negative response to the first email I sent him about the chaotic state of the BBS (this was before all the spam hit, where the worst problem was that new threads were being created too rapidly, preventing old ones from being seen, so a lot of people were making duplicates of existing threads and there was a lot of clutter) where he basically told me he'd deal with it if it became a serious problem (it already was). The second email I sent on the same subject got no response at all. Maybe I was just too aggressive in my approach and he didn't want to deal with me xD

Anyway, I'm happy to see the site cleaned up and running smoothly :) Let me know if there's anything else I can do to help out.

One more for the United States... http://www.fanbbs.net/self-introductions/kareha.pl/1311322778/

I'm enjoying this too much xD It's sad when internet stuff feels more productive than my schoolwork.

13 Name: Anonymous : 2012-10-10 14:15 ID:Yw8IG9fS

Hah, yeah it's a bad habit to spend time working on less important projects.

Like I said, I'll move these threads when I have the time. Just keep linking them.

>Just keep linking them.

No problem :3 I think I've done all the important ones anyway. I may go back through the archives of Offline Meetings if I get REALLY bored.

15 Name: enchantedsleeper : 2012-10-16 02:39 ID:UMynMD2i

Of course, the problem with dividing the whole of Offline Meetings and Fan-Work Groups up into various regions is that there'll be no need for those two BBS to exist any more. You might have to do a general revamp of how the site is laid out...

16 Name: Anonymous : 2012-10-22 11:10 ID:Yw8IG9fS

Of course, I plan to merge/remove a few of these boards.

17 Name: Anonymous : 2012-10-22 11:25 ID:Yw8IG9fS

Also, I've moved all of these threads.

18 Name: enchantedsleeper : 2012-11-05 09:16 ID:2wOELB5y

Awesome! I might have to dig up some more. X3
