Re-explanation of this forum (Dead & Damaged Threads)
I understand this arrangement is strange, but considering the amount of activity on the forum, it works:
1. When a thread in the main forum, Misc., appears to have stopped, and will no longer get responses, nor warrant really any additional reading, I move it here--to call attention to it. These posts _need_ new posts, but aren't getting them. Maybe they will never get them.
2. Once here, they can be revived, and again, I will check for any new posts here, and carry on conversations just the same. But because they already died once a lot of them are just not going to be revived. So this forum is like a graveyard with a few zombies. The other one is more for the living. I can check this forum second, and can read both forums more effectively because of this.
3. But, as you can see, theoretically they are identical twin forums--they are both Misc., two sides of a coin, functioning together--yin and yang.
