I'd be in favor of dumping the entire forum database (and all of the drama contained within) if it means a better BB system. Important info can be reposted in time by those concerned (as seen following the Nexus changeover).
I agree Nukey most of the threads in the forum are just taking up space for example,
for repeated questions most of those could be dumped, threads with constant spam in them and
threads that are way out of date like "well I have come across a problem in Qb" etc.. that is no longer relevant!
I mean if you were to post letters to a magazine do you think they would keep all the mail?
obviously no! and its slowing down the server.
Word of advice Albert no sooner you will have tranfered everything to the new BB
when it will fill up and slow down quicker than you can say "Jack and Jill"
I say dump all of the threads that are no longer needed and clean the place up
Most of the old Announcements could go after the move as well! they are definatly not needed!
