While we have the user moderators in place, we think it would be good to sort out the board by merging redundant threads and moving misplaced ones.

Since we are fully occupied processing new threads which wind up in the wrong forum, and holding down jobs and family life, some help in tracking down the older threads would be useful.

If you see a redundant thread, or a thread you think is in the wrong place then please post a link here and where you think it should go in terms of the MB.

NOTE: This is for serious use only. Not discussion or comment. Any such posts will be deleted from this thread.

To keep the thread useable by the Moderators, it will be cleared back to this message as early the week as is possible.

Thank you for your help in this.

Rog

p.s.

If you see your old message has disappeared, it will be because either it's been done, or in the mod squads opinion doesn't needs doing, and will be removed Smile

We will keep relatively new posts just so you all know what's what

p.p.s

Could people drop the links in using the forteantimes.com URL (as opposed to the IP or forteantimes.co.uk) as it make it easer for the mods - they'd have to re-edit the address otherwise.

We also reserve the right not to edit or merge chat threads - as they are purged from time to time it is usually a wasted effort so think carefully before dropping them in here Wink

We also try and avoid merging IHTM threads but will consider suitable ones.

Emps


edit-

if anyone comes across any urls, links, images etc. that are too wide for the board and are breaking pages or causing problems with viewing pages, please feel free to drop a link to the post on this thread.

What are the mods thoughts on Most Haunted threads in the ghost section?

Is there any support for a grand MH merge or perhaps a little bunching and perhaps a move to Fortean Culture?

Whatever one's views on the show (i think it's pretty fun for what it is),that's a hell of a lot of threads for a single show!

If nothing else there's definitely a few 'derek: fake?' threads to be merged.

Yeah when I made the list here:

www.forteantimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21169

I did ponder a merge or three but I don't watch MH and so am not sure of the specifics so I don't want to rush into anything.

I'd be against one massive MH thread as MH is one of the most popular topics on the Ghosts forum so it'd be a whopper but perhaps ones for:

Each MH series
MH live
Degsy is a big fat liar - as this is more of an umbrella topic that touches on the various episodes.
Some other stuff

Thoughts?

You're right that one thread would be too impenetrable but your breakdown sounds fine. In fact the degsy thread should be a general 'Most Haunted: Fact or Fake?' and the specifics can be thrashed out in the individual series threads. We could use an expert to divide up the locations by series - i've not seen enough. Any Ancorah anoraks?

At the minute it's a mess.

Yep that sounds reasonable but as you say we might need to throw this one of to the MH experts (if anyone will own up to it I suppose - if not they can PM me and I'll guarantee their anonymity Wink ).

www.forteantimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21269
www.forteantimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=21460

I'm unsure we can as 3 out of 4 threads have polls about how fake it is.

We could delete some of the polls but that seems a bit tight on people who have voted and which would go?

I do think it might be required though.

Pos. two threads - on degsy being a big fat fake and MH being cobblers or is there enough corssover to jam them all together into your proposed "Most Haunted: Fact or Fake? thread?

I'd bung them together in 'fake or fact', drop all the earlier polls and replace them with a fresh one 'fake or not?' [or not sure] and let poeple vote again if they choose.

But you're the boss...

Has the 'RIP Thread' disappeared? If so, is there any chance it could be resurrected?

I'll have to have a look for it. If it is still there I'll bump it, if not then feel free to start a new thread.

How about linking up the two threads on the Entity - with the new one hopefully stuck onto the old one. Though, I'd like to see them together in Ghosts rather than Parapsychology.

The new one (in ghosts, where I started the last one)

http://www.forteantimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=30134

The old one (In parapsychology, which I think is a bad fit, but I was told the last time I brought it up that parapsychology was where it was going to stay):

http://www.forteantimes.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=6806&highlight=entity+movie

What do ya'll think? Is it time for a change of venue for the Entity case?


Well, I'm not sure why it was kept in Parapsychology but I've gone with your request - the threads are merged and I'll move it over to Ghosts asap.

As per mysuggestion here:

I'll see what I can do but it might be they are too intertwined and it might be better to just start another thread.
