Thread Name: New Thread Acronym Suggestion - 'UN'
Subject: RE: New Thread Acronym Suggestion - 'UN'
Maybe the question is not how to delete, but maybe how to archive. We have a whole heck of a lot of information here - how do we organize it in a way that's most useful to us?
One thing I'd like is the ability to combine threads. If we have five threads going on a song, that's too many. too much information gets missed. In the process of combining threads, maybe some messages could be deleted - sparingly, of course.
And yes, I think it would be good to give the job of categorizing threads over to the editors. I'm afraid the current system of categories has caused more confusion than it has eliminated. Fewer categories and more consistency would make things easier to find.
