Archive of Great Threads gone... what's this about??
 
Hey guys, has the "Archive of Great Threads - present and past" sub-forum been cleared of its info through the mods or possibly a hacker? I've never seen this before on this forum. What happened?

No hackers were harmed in the update of this forum. The problem with the Archive of Great Threads was that it simply created another entire sub-set of the forum that discussed all of the same subjects as the main forum. People were creating new threads in the main forum not knowing that similar threads were in the Archive. Plus the Archive was open so that meant that people were still contributing to threads that had been saved there. It was like two complete forums, confusing for many and without any great advantages.

The formerly archived threads have simply been merged back to the forums that they came from in the first place. The forum code is written so that popular threads will always remain at the top of the page, regardless of how old they are. If people stop contributing to them, they slip back into the older pages. If anyone wants to search before posting (ha) the threads will now be easier to find as well. It's all good.

Ahhhh you mods and your search function....

lol

I think it was a good idea, as now we can access all the good stuff in the archive along with all the new posts.
And, yes, it will show up in the search...

Wow if someone was actually hacking drummerworld forums.

They really got to get a job.

It happened a few years ago, and this new and improved forum was the result.
