Discussion forum: delete some threads?

greenspun.com : LUSENET : AUSA Admin : One Thread

Took a look at the complete list of topics of the discussion forum, and it's getting long. Too long for an impatient visitor to find the most relevant thread to post something.

I think some of the current threads can be deleted (we used to have a 'page of old, uninteresting topics' or whatever - still there?), for example the ones about:

1. Didulica (gone; he's now at GBA, so things about him can be posted in the 'Club partnerships' thread)

2. Nieuwenburg, Hosé, Grønkjær, Litmanen, Bergkamp, Dani, Reuser, Van 't Schip (all 'Former players'; we have a separate thread for that now)

3. Westerhof, Wouters (I think we need one new topic named 'Former Coaches')

4. 'League Standing', 'What Is Happening to Ajax?' and '2000-2001 Preseason Matches' (have become pretty much irrelevant now we have a 'Current State of Ajax Football' thread)

5. Some extremely specific threads to which no-one is ever gonna add something new anymore: 'Youth Using Weigth Belts', 'Ajax In Outer Space', 'Eddie Lewis almost to Ajax?' and 'Screen Saver'.

6. The 'Ajax collectibles, replicas' and 'Ajax Fanshop' topics can go together: a 'Buying Ajax Stuff/Ajax Fanshop' topic.

I think this would clean the page up enormously, making it much more 'accessible' to people than it is now. What do you think?

Absolutely. Your list is for sure, and I'm sure there are more we can do without. I'll work on this tomorrow.
