Forum cleaning

Post by matticus88 » 01 Aug 2016 18:50

I would like to suggest a bit of forum cleaning to be done.

I think the following actions should be considered;

Archive Transport Empire section (No new post for a year in 1 sub forum, +4 years in others)
Archive Zugspiel & Railroad Tycoon Series forums for no new posts in years


Add section for Train Fever and its upcoming sequel Transport Fever
(Existing fan websites for those are predominantly German/french)

There was this discussion recently. I don't think any of the forums will be archived (and taken off line).

It's a different topic, but there was this discussion earlier this year.
For Train Fever and Transport Fever, there are this thread and this thread, both of which are moving rather slow.

well, being hidden away in off-topic would have the affect of them moving slow. But i guess some advertising/spread the word about this forum would help

Train Fever already has its own dedicated forum on its own website. Many of the forums for other games here came about because they didn't have a dedicated community elsewhere.

I wouldn't mind if all the other games got archived. They're literally dead, there are so few still playing it, their game base has fallen apart and few, if any, are left to provide any practical help.

I wouldn't mind most, if not all, of the sections for other games was merged into one "Other Transport related games" section. We'd be able to discuss RollerCoaster Tycoon and the like there too.

As mentioned previously, I've no particular intention of "archiving" any forums - if they're not receiving posts, then it wouldn't make much difference anyway!
