I was just reading in Salvidian's Tavern Thread about AG usership [this: http://armorgames.com/community/thread/9993446/one-dilly-of-a-pickle-aint-it ], and I saw where he said that AGv3 will completely delete the content in the forums [quote:

AG3 will also result in a clean slate for the forums... By deleting all of the material there.
].

If this is true, then my message to the AG people behind this plan is DON'T DO IT![i] If you wipe the forums, you will destroy countless crucial game guides, good conversations [like Cen's late thread about internet behavior], and beloved games [like You're Banned]. In short, you will kill, gut, and hand out to dry the community that forms the backbone of AG's success and popularity, which will in turn cripple AG and eventually lead to its downfall and consignment to the internet's rubbish heap.
Now mind you, I have no problem with deleting all the locked stuff and threads that haven't seen daylight since AG's inception. That would actually free up a huge amount of server space for AG. But slaughtering the rest of the forums would be nothing short of suicidal for AG, and a giant middle finger emblazoned with "F-U" to the people who inhabit these forums.

C'mon AG, do the right thing here. Don't eviscerate the thing that makes your site such a popular haven for the denizens of the internet. Keep the forums as they are.

Speculation.

They didn't say that. They mentioned if it's too difficult for them to transfer over the data then they will start anew.

Umm.. We REALLY NEED an EDIT POST button.


Already planned for AG3.

They mentioned if it's too difficult for them to transfer over the data then they will start anew.


I'm willing to wait 10 years if it takes them that long. These forums are the best around and deleting them would be deleting years of the site's heritage.

Rumors pointed in my direction say the forums aren't transferable. That's what I heard from small-talk, anyways.

A lot of the thread is based on rumors. Because we don't know much about AG3 due to the lack of admin/public communication, I had to go on the highest accepted rumors. The thread is also based on common knowledge of most of the users. Read with discretion.

I also imagine it being difficult to get them started again. Right now I'm comfortable in the forums, and I assume many others are as well, because we have all these threads to browse through and possibly post in. Imagine the forums being wiped. How would we start? Would people be willing to continue after all their precious threads have been deleted? Specifically regarding the AMW, but if they keep those threads and not any of the other sections, that'll be looked at as favouritism, and would imply that the other sections aren't important enough to keep.

This has nothing to do with the forums. Don't post this everywhere.

But keeping the AMW is favoritism. Minus the stickies,The S&S threads will be pointless after AG3. The Newcomer's threads will be pointless. The AG3 forum will, obviously, be pointless. The Video Games threads are all repeatable. The really, really, good Game Walkthroughs would be a good thing to keep. The GD threads for Flash Games would be the only thing to keep. Gantic's list of popular games in Forum Games would be the only thing worth keeping. Every thread in the WEPR is repeatable. Same in Popular Media and The Tavern. The Programming forum threads can be removed.

When you look at it, about 95% of our threads are outdated, irrelevant, repeatable, or are outright useless.

It's wiping away the sites history. I also don't think that it'll be easy for us to start over from scratch. We have ten-twenty active regulars, I doubt it'll be much different than it is now in terms of activity. However now we have threads to post in. We don't have to recreate all those threads just to post. It seems like a tedious task.
