    You may not be able to see the forum during this time. We are trying to locate a READ ONLY application. Please copy anything you want to keep. It has been over a year since we have done a deep clean, so just be forewarned.

    What is meant by a 'deep clean'?

    Are all threads being deleted? I don’t really understand what’s going to happen, and would like to know how to save a thread if possible.

    The various threads might need some posts removed or combined to make it easier to navigate. Current threads and posts should remain available for view, but new posting would be stopped while the work was being done.

    I wonder how much longer will we be able to post... it will be only three days, but kinda feels like the end of the world was near.

    I feel paranoid about it, for some reason.

    We have had to postpone the clean up until next week. One admin's computer crashed. So nothing has been done yet. We'll start Dec 19th. It will be only 3 days. We have four admins and were' only going back 3-7 pages. The stuff way back when was cleaned up years ago. We're looking for off topic posts that were missed, posts that got no or little response, posts that can be merged. Deleted posts that are still visible. etc. Light handed. ;)
