Good question, widow. I think there should be a time limit on replying to posts. If one goes unanswered for, let's see, say 48 hrs. the FEARnet admin should delete it. They just take up space and bytes. Or the person who posts the discussion should have the option to delete it after a certain amount of time if there are no replies to prevent it taking up web space. When I was over on the Marvel Comics Community, the poster had the option to delete it if it went unanswered. However, once someone replied, it was there to stay and the only way it could be gotten rid of was to message the moderators and ask them to delete it. With all the new improved features FEARnet is introducing, you would think that they would take this into consideration. What do the rest of you think?

After a certain period of time comments, etc.. should be removed because with no response, it's taking up useable space, a community of communication and no activity is dead space or dead air.

This is part of what we in the office refer to as Boards 2.0

Quoting posts, replies to posts, and deleting of you own posts can all be expected.  As far has having posts time out or "hang" as suggested, not a bad idea. Not sure what it would take to make that work but it can be looked into. 

My suggestion for these discussions if they are not commented on after an extended period of time and we can move them to a new area....they go to "The Graveyard". You can visit them when you like, they aren't roaming around amongst the living, but can be raised from the dead if someone so chooses. 

Please understand I am not saying this is happening, but this is why I asked for suggestions the other day.  Chances are if you are thinking it may be a good idea, others are too.

That was just something that popped into my head as I was typing, not what it will be if it in fact can be. Also didn't mean they would be labled as undead, just that they would become an active discussion

Believe me, there will need to be a meetings with several people agreeing before that could happen

Keep the ideas coming, I truely mean that.

'The Graveyard' just popped into your head while you were typng? That's a sign of greatness and creativity having a spontaneous thought while not even thinking about it! That's absolutely brilliant! You should see what you can do about making that idea a reality-it's too clever to just ignore. Most ingenious ideas start that way-it would be awesome if you guys could get that started. 'The Morgue' might be a good title, too.

The Morgue also works for me.

I know we "spoke" of this before but just a reminder that it would be COOL if we could get FIREFOX to work on this site instead of switching to Internet Explorer for some things like deleting and flagging, since most of us use FIREFOX.

We found the confict in our code and FF.  Our code monkeys are working on getting them to play nice with each other.

Great! Thanks cause I just tried to add a vid to a set using FIREFOX and I COULD NOT. Which is weird cause I USED FF to make the sets in the first place but I CANNOT ADD to the set. The other problem is that you CANNOT see the entire library of your own vids because the categories in the drop down window will NOT allow the entire set. Just, RECENT, MOST VIEWED, HIGHEST RATED, etc. and some vids dont fall into those categories. Thanks bud. Im checking right now to see if IE will let me add to the set.
