The Big Forum Smudging 2018

Post by Grahame » Thu Oct 18, 2018 7:18 pm

I have now almost completed a first pass of the forum, the first 'smudging' that it has had in several years. Almost 1,900 old and redundant topics have been moved to the recycle bin, where they will remain for a while before being permanently deleted if nobody complains LOL.

In the process, I've edited many, many posts to either repair broken links (where possible), or to mark them as (link broken) where not. If you find any more, the easiest way to report them is to click on the little exclamation mark icon at the top right of the post, which will report it to an administrator for actioning.

Inactive members who had registered but never posted have been deleted from the forum database, and all 'active' members should have had an email inviting them to rejoin. If you were a former 'lurker' who had never posted, you are of course welcome to register again.

I've created some new sections to try and make things a little easier to locate, particularly in the Earth Energies area, which now boasts sections on
Leys & Alignments,
Earth Grids,
Geopathic Stress and
Technopathic Stress.

There is also a new section in the Main forum on
Tools, Tips and Techniques , and a new
'In Other News...' section in News & Media.

I'm considering doing a second pass to trim down the news items some more, as I think we have too many. It's questionable how much value they have these days, in the fast-turnover, ephemeral worlds of Twitter and Facebook. I 'm debating whether merging the 'specialist' news areas in Earth Energies, Archaeology, Water and Health into one section would be a good idea, or even getting rid of those completely. What do you think?

If you have any comments or suggestions about the changes, or if there is anything else you would like to see, post here or in the new
Suggestion Box section.

Grahame, what a great job you've done. My hats off to you on your 'spring cleaning smudging'.
I'm sure it is a daunting task but much appreciated.
Looking forward to the new sections and excited to read and learn once again.
Thank you.
Nancy
