hey Brett - I know there isn't much you can do about it, but am I the only one whose getting bored with all the attention seeking threads at the main discussion forum? Half of the stuff there is personal statements, apologies, threads about other posters, farewell messages, personal messages and crap like that. I know this stuff can creep into genuine threads and not be a problem - but it's got to the point of people starting threads about themselves.

Maybe you should have a "I'm more important than Van Halen" forum.

Yes they are a bit much, I'm just too lazy to sit and move them all, maybe Goo or one of the other mods will want to later.

I wasn't really trying to get them moved, just maybe certain people should be gently encouraged not to do it anymore. You know who I mean http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/wink.gif

Can't locked threads be erased on the original forum once they're moved or do you guys do that anyway?

Yeah, do locked threads get erased from their original forums? I think that if they don't they probably should after 7 days - y'know, leave 'em there a week to see if people care where they went, then whack 'em and let the moved thread live on in its new home - gotta save you some space?

Nope locked threads do not get deleted.

I did my best to clean up Main! I just moved a lot of topics that I felt didn't belong there. If I missed any, feel free to move them fellow Mods.http://216.10.25.192/vhlforum/smilies/smile.gif
