Splitting, moving & merging threads

Postby jonesthegarage » Tue Nov 04, 2014 7:54 am

Topic split & moved from Ring-a-Bell wiggly wire type games thread - Site Admin.

Thanks for the thread merge modmen - it reminded me that mine was called "Ding-a-Bell".

If I post a thread, I'm not keen on it being buried in a merge. Thank you :D

On the contrary, it doesn't get buried it becomes aligned to an already existing thread on the same subject.
Therefore those who are following the subject will be immediately aware of it, plus in future times a newcomer who may not know what terminology to search under stands a better chance of finding all the information we are trying to preserve and pass on.

BP :D

And as your post didn't include the name of the game or a picture of it, linking it to the earlier thread allows others to see exactly what you're talking about. It doesn't get buried because new posts in an old thread raise it to the top of the active topics list.
I'm more cautious with new members' posts because, being unfamiliar with the Forum, it might confuse them. The new Electrodart thread will eventually merge with the old thread devoted to those games.

OK Slotalot - the old Electrodart thread is now scheduled for cremation. :shock:
And at the risk of more negative feedback, I've split and moved this interlude to the Feedback category.

Incidentally, sometimes when I move a newcomer's thread, like the recent Jubilee 3 reel bundle problem, erroneously posted in Tips and Tricks, I leave a shadow topic link to it in that category. This allows the member to find their post, but it's a bit messy so I usually delete it at some point.

OK, fair enough, now you put it like that I suppose it makes sense. I see the light at the end of the tunnel. Or is it someone on a bike? !!THUMBSX2!!
