Wrapping up threads here, suggestions?

Post  OldProfessorBear on Thu Sep 18, 2008 12:29 am

The only problem with a refuge such as this is - what do to when the real thing returns?

Some of the threads started here are fairly open-ended.

This could get confusing.

How does this sound? Start a corresponding thread on BG with links in both directions.

This definitely has merit, since things are so unsettled at present.

Or we allow attention deficit to take over and forget BG.

We've done well in establishing a new home here.

We just need a recruitment drive.

We can just call BG our archive section.

We could always keep BOTH forums.....

What if we were to return to BG as planned, only we keep SG active - maybe as a "sub forum". This would help solve some of the issues that BG is having with bandwidth and CPU usage allowances. Some of SG's topics are of a similar - yet still different in their own way - nature to BG's topics, it should be possible to structure things that both forums compliment each other (and SG will still be active as a backup to BG).

We could also have SG serve as a BG sub forum to cater soley to the other sub genres in steampunk - ie "mad scientists", "Air ship captains" / "pirates", etc. Again this would retain functional use, yet still offload some of the burden from BG (and still serve as the BG backup).

Just my 2d (tuppence / "2 pence")....

Well, the word from the Smoking Lounge is that BG may be back up soon after a host-change...that's what the rumour I have heard is at least. Just pointing out it may be hasty to relegate the beloved BG to the status of "archive".

Oh yay that was just the sort of update I was hoping for VAP. Steam London will be back soon.

That is encouraging news.

Assuming all works out as planned.
