Ready to move unlocks/update requests to US forum?

Postby AlanOfTheBerg » Wed Apr 03, 2013 6:10 pm

All, are we ready to have all US update and unlock requests move into the sub-forum here? I don't think there's much to do but drop a post in the two forums in use now. I'd like to do this today.

This is complete.

Does anyone have an objection to auto-prune topics 30 days after last reply/view? I think it'd help keep board post volume a bit more under control and I don't see a need to keep these requests all that long.

There may be a MOD which has this level of granularity, but it is not built into the phpbb core functions.

Organization and clarification when viewing forums with unread content. Generically-named forums are less-readable and less efficient. Also, the US dominates the main forums too much.

That's what Waze did to "fix it up." Things are still messed up, like the ghost forum, so I am not touching anything.

Okay, with the forum being more stable lately, I've posted announcements asking people to move over to the US unlock/update requests forum.

I would still like to enable pruning, even if it is set to something like 60 or 30 days since last access/reply.

Nope. Pruning means it's deleted. There may be a MOD which does this though.

Anyway to only auto prune those marked Solved after X days? Or only those with 1 (or more) replies after X days?

This would prevent an unanswered requests (one that got lost in the shuffle) from disappearing (and would keep them at the bottom of the list so they should be easy to find).

Ok, couldn't hurt to ask about it...

On a side note, why is the US under "North America" while Canada & Mexico are one level up under "Americas and Caribbean" (i.e. "Board index ‹ Country (Language) Forums ‹ Americas and Caribbean ‹ North America ‹ United States" vs "Board index ‹ Country (Language) Forums ‹ Americas and Caribbean ‹ Canada")
