Yeah… when the mods see you posted it on FE in the ‘OT
Renegades Voyeur thread’ - where the old clique congregate to take pot shots at this site - before posting it on here… this reads like a wind up.
I apologise to everyone as I shouldn’t of posted it over there first or at all, I wasn’t aware there was a feedback section over here and I should of looked more thourghly.
ooj has already been through the ‘Toys and Memorabilia’ forum and sorted that out - including a new Index for it. As he has done for the ‘SW Preservation’, ‘SW Fan Edits’ and ‘Fan Edits’ sections. He is due to start work on Preservations soon too (it looks like he already has).
Threads have already been relabelled as ‘Ideas’, ‘Info’, ‘Info Wanted’, ‘Help Wanted’, (unfinished projects) - with more added to ‘discussion /idea thread’ index or sections, ‘Help: looking for…’, or a mix of each depending on the thread content. Finished project threads have been left alone - so it is easier to distinguish what is a project - and what isn’t.
I have noticed this tagging of threads as of late, and I have to say its a step in the right direction, I’m a big supporter of this idea, as I mentioned in my post.
The Index threads seem to have been updated and added to - and even unfinished projects with useful information have been added to the ‘discssion / idea’ sections. ooj says they may be of interest and help others loooking into projects for the future, and record the efforts on here - even if they weren’t finished or released.
The ‘markdown’ posts which were all over the place on here have been removed (for the most part) - as have many double and triple posts.
Multiple request threads for ‘where are the Despecialized Edits?’ have been merged into a mega thread, along with ‘how-to and help’ questions - and are no longer prevalent through the forums here.
I know Harmy has tackled this sort of thing, other threads still share similar issues such as Smudger9, DonKamillo, Hal9000 and even this small thread about upscaling deleted scenes consists mostly of requests. I know there is still a lot of clean up that is done and it’s amazing that the mods clean up a lot of messy threads, but the amount of posts dedicated to requests to PM instead of PMing often strangles discussion.
Bobson, if you’re being genuine and not taking the piss, then I am truly sorry and deeply apologise. Though you may want to have a look around again at the things you have issues with. Posting that on FE, and then this on here… reads like you are taking the piss out of the mods on here. The timing of this, especially as ooj was apparantly the mod a few people now at FE had issues with (and still takes jibes & digs at) - and just so happens to be in the process of finishing up a re-organisation of the Fan Project forums… sucks. That’s not even taking into account you saying ‘this is something that I’ve had on my mind for a while now’…
I’m also deeply sorry if my post did not come across as genuine, my timing was awful and I regret that sincerely. I don’t have any problems with any mods and I don’t associate with any group that takes the piss out of them. I didn’t know that they were nearly at completion of a re-organisation and I look awful now for mentioning something they should do while doing it.
I’m not even sure why I bothered typing this up - it’ll likely lead to arguments, division and old wounds - sorry mods! (please delete this post if you wish)
Me neither, I don’t want to argue with anyone here either. I apologise for my tone as it came across as hyper critical
