Is there a reason for the shelving? Granted, this is a post, but a reasonable one, no?

Seriously... I mean, all the people who check this forum irregularly are going to post a "What the hell" thread for the next several weeks at least. You going to delete them all?

The sticky says essentially nothing. You don't think mass deletion deserves some kind of... explanation? with syllables in it?

Erm, so we can make noise, but now you go silent instead of actually responding? It seems a bit silly, because we can see what you're doing using Who's Online :doubtful:. So I know you read the post and then refused to answer. All we want is an explantion. It doesn't even have to be a good explanation*. Tell us all the threads were infected by Martian brain fungus and had to be wiped for our safety. Say something.



*Not actually true. Ridiculous answers not accepted.

Well, I'd guess the omission of any status update implies it's 99% dead as a going concern.  I mean, the webpage is dead, there's no staff, and now any discussion is being deleted, so it seems like the kamikaze death of a project in a last desperate attempt to get people interested.

Or, I dunno, maybe it's a big revamp.  Who knows?

See, the thing that gets to me is that there have been threads in here of some degree of interest. Not many of them sure, and a lot of the properly good ones were deleted in the last Book Burni... Ridiculous Purg... Forum Cleaning? Whatever.

My gist is that not all of them were (or should have been to a reasonable person) embarassing enough to warrant mass deletion. And yet mass deleted they were. Not just the "Is BtRL Dead?" ones (the few that hadn't already been censored) or the "What's the story with you and Diaspora?" ones, but stuff about the show generally, and Caprica and whatnot. All gone. For no discernable reason. And that is what I'm curious about. I want to know what motivates a decision like that, and I don't think I'm the only one.

Oh, and did you also wipe the Tech Support forum? I never go in there, but it strikes me that there should probably be more than three threads. If so, then that is just downright fucking stupid. What if people have problems with the demo that someone else fixed for them a few weeks ago? They're going to post a new thread now, and wait for a response before they can play it, where before they might have just been able to look down the list.

But as I say, I never go in there, so if there were only ever three threads, then... well, so be it I suppose.
