Death to Collector's Corner!  

I was just flicking around the forums and noticed that Artiste's threads have a lifespan of 100 days. Good idea, I approve.

I also noticed Sysiyo suggesting on the 'sticky' thread in Artiste's that Coffee Shop should be treated similarly. Bad idea, I don't approve - Coffee Shop has always been the meat of the TW sandwich. True, sometimes it's been, well, bad meat. Sometimes. But the meat it remains, and unless purging old posts is absolutely 100% necessary, I oppose it.

But I don't think many people disagree with me on that one. That's not the issue.

The issue is Collector's Corner. Just sitting there, clogging up the arteries of the site with four years worth of threads of "I'm selling this random piece of shit" and "I want this random piece of shit". There's absolutely no reason to keep old CC threads - the old threads are just selling stuff that's already been sold! Meaningless!

I suggest we set a relatively tight cull on Collector's Corner, considering how quickly the threads become redundant. I suggest an expiry window of 30 days. Plenty of time for even the more casual collectors to see what's up, and a not unconsiderable saving of space.

All in favour?

I could be a genius if I just put my mind to it.

What the fuck?
It just occurred to me that absolutely nobody suggested that when these ideas of culling unwanted posts were thrown around, nobody made that suggestion, even though the posts in Collector's Corner have a lifespan of five seconds. Well, in all honesty Shyster made a few entertaining threads over there but I'm not sure if those alone are worth keeping when all the shit keeps piling at the same time.

So yes, that's a pretty damn good idea.

Sounds like a good idea to me, after all when does anyone trawl through there looking for stuff? Anything that gets posted there is, as Twister says, for immediate consumption and of no lasting value.
Not that I have anything against the forum, it is just not worth keeping the old posts.

Re: Death to Collector's Corner! new [re: twister]  

It probably didn't use to be, but since Ebay became prominent, Collectors' Corner has become surplus to requirements.

Get shot of it altogether, I say -- Not that it's a life or death matter but I think you know where I'm coming from -- You don't? Okay, I'll explain a little further - If you ever see a common Grey Partridge keeping up with a Cheetah and they both stop & the Cheetah says to the Partridge "Where the hell did you learn to run like that!" And the Partridge replies "On a 400 metre running track, where do you think?" To which the Cheetah says "I think, therefore I am."

The Partridge gives an Oliver Hardy style, sideways look to the camera.

This is my generic "I agree"-type response.

I agree.

I'm afraid to even go in there. Those guys would buy and sell anythin. Their own grandmas even.

So yah, gives me the creeps.

I like dogs. You always know what a dog is thinking. It has four moods. Happy, sad, cross and concentrating. Also, dogs are faithful and they do not tell lies because they cannot talk.

Looks like I'm going to be the odd one out yet again! I actually like collectors corner, Poorsoul calls me a nerd and poorsoul is correct, I am a nerd when it comes to collectors corner, plus I have learnt much from that fora.

Not saying get rid of it Ant, just that the old threads have no purpose. Who wants to read that a poster who no longer posts here has a copy of Hunky dory that they wanted to sell in 2002?

I can't believe people want to sell out collectors corner.

Yes that was an appalling pun.

Yeah I can see that aspect of it now you mention it, right then delete the threads that don't mean anything.

Okay, I requested that you paid the odd compliment here & there, but don't take the piss.
