The deletion of Sandy's thread seems to have been a harbinger of things to come here at our forum home. Now the forum is not posting any embedded videos at any thread, old or new, in any board. This could be a malfunction of the embed extension, but more likely the server is not allowing embedded videos due to the bloated forum having so many such videos and too many posts.
Therefore, before we start losing general posts, we need to do something about the size of this forum. That something is to prune the threads, deleting of old posts.
ADMIN/MODS WILL BEGIN TO LOOK THROUGH THREADS TO TRIM STARTING TOMORROW. THIS IS ACROSS THE FORUM, BUT STARTING WITH THE MUSIC BOARD. PLEASE SAVE FOR YOURSELF ANY OF YOUR POSTS YOU VALUE IN THAT BOARD IMMEDIATELY AND BEGIN THINKING ABOUT OTHER BOARDS WHERE YOU HAVE POSTS AND WANT TO SALVAGE THEM BEFORE THE PRUNING OF THAT BOARD COMES AROUND.
IF YOU WOULD LIKE FOR ADMIN TO LEAVE A CERTAIN THREAD IN PLACE, PLEASE NOMINATE IT HERE AND WE WILL DO THAT FOR YOU.
OUR INTENTION IS TO START WITH THE OLDEST THREADS IN THE MUSIC BOARD SO GO TO EARLY PAGES OF ANY THREAD YOU TREASURE TO SEE IF YOU HAVE POSTS THERE IMPORTANT ENOUGH TO SAVE WITH HERE AT THE FORUM OR SAVE FOR YOURSELF ELSEWHERE.
PLEASE POST QUESTIONS ABOUT THIS PROCESS HERE AS OTHERS POSSIBLY HAVE THE SAME QUESTION.
THANKS TO EVERYONE FOR YOUR UNDERSTANDING. WE WISH WE COULD GET BY WITHOUT THIS HAPPENING, BUT THE TIME HAS COME!
