Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

This here be the burial ground for olde Announcements, Events and threads from other forums (specifically Game Design) that duplicate other posts or are otherwise redundant.

If your post has been moved here my condolences. It probably means that you should have done a more thorough search, and that the matter you propose has been exhaustively discussed before.

You can post new threads here, but I wouldn't encourage it. Bad things might happen.

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

Ye Olde Event posts will also be directed here, just to keep them from continually being bumped up in the Events forum and slowly driving me insane. I'll keep shadow topics there so there should be no reason to come here in search of your events.

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

Simply for amusement value... if this Forum system allows you to place the individual forums (like this one) in any order you like, then I want to suggest making Davy Jones' Locker the bottom one on the main list. It's only appropriate, no? :)

The bottom

Hrm, I thought about this a bit -- it would be appropriate at the bottom, but that's kind of a prime spot in terms of visibility. So I buried it in the middle.

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

Why would anyone have anything to post here?

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

You're not supposed to post here. Posts that never should've been made get moved here instead of being deleted.

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

This was the best place I could think of to place this question:

Why are the Announcement topics moved here from Announcements not de-stickied when they are moved here? I thought the intention of this forum was for things to sink, but the Announcement topics will never sink until they're unstuck from the top.

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

Rather, I say.

Then again the stickied announcements will in time occupy the first umpteen pages and be sure to bury any other threads that get moved here.

This is just a wild guess but announcements are different than stickies so I'm guessing that they can't "unsticky" them (at least that's how it works on the invision board that I mod on)

Announcements are handled no different than stickies on phpBB. It's an edit of the original post to either unsticky or unannounce something.

Notorious atteSmythe,
who'd probably leave the announcements/stickies as-is for the above reason

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

I'd unsticky them if I had some time, but it'll have to wait until I'm not so busy. I spent half an hour a month or so back taking some of them out but they then aren't findable easily, so I'll have to link them in an announcement/sticky thread or something.

Re: Davy Jones' Purpose and Rules

I like them remaining sticked etc.
Generally, the announcements and such are more fun to read over than the rest of the trash that gets thrown here. Come to think of it... I think I'll make a "notable threads" topic in shore leave that gathers all your favorite lockered threads together for fond memories...
