It would be great if this were more like a standard message board - where you can see people's profiles, can see who's online at the moment, use private messages, have avatars, search in threads, etc...

Or perhaps we could make our own forum here: http://www.invisionfree.com/
They're very good, I have good experience with them. :-)

search engine would be better than using the stairs to the vaults - its getting a long way down to the bottom now - great idea - better not mention an archive section for the best threads though!!!!

I was searching for the earlier thread on 'What if you could legislate' to bring it forward and came across this one on page 26 of the 143 Blathering On pages.
It got me thinking as to how we could edit obsolete or unnecessary or duplicated threads out of these pages because 143 pages of posts, some of which are extensive, must take up an enormous amount of memory space in the server computer.
I know some of us have been using the site for a long time and to edit out our own posts that were finished with would take a long time.
Any suggestions on how to simplify the problem?

OMG, this isn't the only thread where we posted our yearnings for editing. It would be great if something would be done, but maybe nothing can be. Once the webmaster asked us for threads and some of us made lists and sent them to a person who was supposed to send them to the webbie. I don't know what ever happened with all that, but nothing much has come of it, if the lists were sent...

One problem was that some people think some threads are important, others don't. It was nearly impossible to delete or edit things to make much difference in the site.

Some websites have users who are good enough to control the site free. I don't think too many of us would be offended if a few posts were deleted from page 88 of Blathering on. The webmaster may have to take this approach some day.
~ I've just checked and page 88 is a very good random selection of a page where messages could be deleted.

I remember a whole lot were deleted and people were quite upset as a lot of the site's early history was there. This does happen on most forums though.
