Suggestion: A way for LST to save a little dough

Recommended Posts

As I was perusing the forum, I found myself in the Initiation section and made a comment on someone's thread about not posting a new thread just for the sake of showing off a new tattoo, mentioning that there would probably be hundreds of threads about new tattoos when we have one thread that has served the community perfectly well for that purpose. And then my brain got to thinking, "well, what would happen if there actually were hundreds of threads for basically the same function? probably would take up a ton of server space, and be really expensive to maintain."

And then upon going back into the Initiation forum, I noticed the 51 pages of threads. Now feel free to disregard this suggestion, but I think it would probably help with the site's expenses if every thread in that section of the forum were deleted after 60 days. Or perhaps deleted after 60 days of inactivity. Obviously, not every person who signs up here ends up sticking around. Which is fine! To me, it seems a little unnecessary to archive threads that say basically the same thing, by people who have already left and by people who have become active members. Also, with fewer threads to sort through, the ones actively present in the sub-forum reclaim their relevance.

Anyhow, just an idea. Thoughts?

Hey - thanks for the suggestion!

The overhead for having those threads is relatively nominal actually, so from a cost perspective, there isn't much of a motive to delete threads. We also don't want to mess with people's post count and what not. ;)

Anyways - thanks again for thinking of ways to improve the forum - we ALWAYS want to hear what you are thinking on that topic, so please keep the ideas coming!

Cheers

    • yep. 4-6 weeks before you really know what you've got.  post a link to the person who you're looking at for re-working it. 
    • I'd wait until it's healed so you actually know what it's going to look like before I start looking at having it "fixed." How exactly is the other artist going to "fix" it? I've seen more tattoos that look worse after they are fixed than better.
    • Hello everyone. So I got this rose tattoo two weeks ago. Still healing and I know I want to get it “fixed”. My issue with it is that while it looks like a rose you have to look hard to see it’s a rose. I have an appt. scheduled for April to have it worked on by a different artist (he did a pocket watch on my ribs last year that came out great). In meeting with him he said it lacks symmetry (which it does) among some other things, but he feels he can work on this. Looking for any advice. Is this fixable or is it a lost cause? If it’s not fixable then it is what it is, but Tully hoping for some input. Needless to say, I’ve been so bummed since I got because it didn’t come out how I would’ve liked. Thank you.
