    So does this mean that you are not moving the old threads? That's going to kinda suck with many having taken on a life of their own.

    Thanks so much for letting our old posts be visible!!!!! And posting the link to them!!!!!!!!!! It is a bit sad that you didn't move the posts,but I'm glad to still be able to see them. I might repost some stuff since nobody can reply to the archives.

    Feel free to copy and paste any post(s), of any thread in the archives when starting a thread here, in order to continue a discussion. Please don't forget to quote the original poster by surrounding them with quote tags that include "quote=username" in the 1st tag. In this way you can "bridge the gap" between the old and the new.

    I agree! Basically you started a new web site and we have to go back to the old "read only" forum that many of us keep adding useful links to and have great discussion's going on. Not a fan of this set up at all.

    I also agree. Some threads live for many years and get rarely updated, but are very valuable to some. I recently joined BT to add to one of them and now its down in the dungeons...

    This is not a general chitchat site, but really important and valuable to many. You shouldn't just wipe and restart everything.

    If this is a technical issue, I am sure it can be solved.

    One possible way of restoring threads from the old board would be to start a new thread with the old title and some indication of the original poster's user name, then put a link to that thread in the message window. You need to go to the archived board and find the thread you want, highlight its URL, and copy and paste it.

    Those who see your new thread will need to click on the link but at least they'll get the entire thread and can carry on with replies in your new thread....

    We couldn't move the old threads/posts over due to the new forum restructuring. All posts have an id to attach it to a thread. All threads have an id to attach it to a forum. All forums have their own ids that attach it to a category. The restructuring changed all of the category and forum id's making it virtually impossible to bring over the old threads. It was time to update the forum structure as we had way too many inactive forums, a couple of redundant forums, and added some new ones.

    While the flow of the threads has been drastically altered, none of the information is lost.

    Hi David ~

    When I click on the link in your original post for the archives, I do not get the old BT forum. I get a page with this message:

    404 Error File Not Found

    The page you are looking for might have been removed,
    had its name changed, or is temporarily unavailable.

    If you typed in the URL, please check the spelling
    You can try to click the Back button and try another link

    **************

    I also copied/pasted the URL in my browser, and the same 404 Error message appeared.

    Please tell me that our old BT forum is not gone.

    Thanks for all you do for our community.

    Love & Light,
    Rose

    The old forums are still available. Feel free to bookmark http://www.braintalkcommunities.org/archives/06_11/ and you won't have any trouble reaching them.
    It's really easy to put someone on ignore and it's strongly recommended that you do so with people whose posts you don't like.

    Step 1 - log in
    Step 2 - click on the "settings" link
    Step 3 - click on the "edit ignore list" link on the left side of the screen
    Step 4 - type (or paste if you copied and pasted it) the username of the person you want to ignore
    Step 5 - click the "ok" button on the right of the screen

    One important note though, this won't hide quoted posts.
