Freeing up space...
« on: July 02, 2007, 11:45:29 AM »
Wouldn't it be better if nils cleared away some of the threads that are no longer read or added to? It would free up more space and get rid of the unnessary junk...

You do have an interesting point, Mayla, however I was meaning that the posts that haven't been read or added to in a VERY LONG time. Every thread has a point to begin with...but people has wasted it by adding comments not relavent.

Such posts...I think...should be removed.

So you are saying the mods should go through each of the 23218 topics here on Pianostreet to find out wich is redundant? Well, i know they are swedish, but i still think they have a life. ;)

This sounds abit akin to some of "pianistimo"'s recent remarks about Norwegians; much more of this kind of thing and Nils might just add "unduly negative comments about Scandinavia and its peoples" to the list of things that can invite bans for members(!)...

It doesn't matter what nationality they are...surely they have a faster method of skimming through the "redundant topics"?

Hehe, these kind of harmless remarks are common in the rivalry between norwegians\swedes. A common type of joke in Norway are jokes about 3 people, a norwegian, a dane and a swede, and in Norway its always the swede that gets owned 8)

However, im not going to the lengths of pianistimo, by calling him dumb or stupid or anything. Nils is a great admin, possibly the best i have seen in any forum, and his efforts of keeping this forum clean and alive are well respected.

This forum has amassed such a great wealth of knowledge.  Surely just because something is old or even outdated doesn't mean it looses it's informational purpose.  We have the luxury of searching back for topics that may be old but still useful. 

Randomly, it would  be hard for a fellow such as Classic Arts to pull of a "classic arts" move if one were to rid the forum of such fossils.

The 'space' actually required for text is very small.

If anything should be removed to free space it should be the recordings or sheets.

Is it just me, or as you a new member of the forum already complaining about so many things?

Scriabin - Etude 8/12

Excuse me invictious but if you had looked more closly at my profile it would have told you "I'm not new...I just forgot my password to "gwk"!" I recently had to make a new account due to forgetting my passowrd to my old account, so thats the first thing you are wrong about.

Another thing, I have only complained about TWO things concerning the forum or chat...how would that come under "so many things?". The way you write to others is very sarcastic and I would appreciate it if you could please alter your style of writing or not post in any of my posts.

The choice is yours,
