No matter how we proceed with a new RSC, the old/current forum IS going away forever in one month.
I'd like to see the possibility of the old forum available in a locked down location that only an assigned few can access.
I mean really locked down where only (for example) 4 people who can convert forum threads to PDFs can log into.
The tech section is relatively easy to move, the threads where we've all hammered out mods & procedures over the years are not.
If the old forum is locked up but a few people have access to, those people could take their time browsing through the threads, finding things that aren't in the tech section & turning them into how-tos & tech articles.
For example, where else could you find Dchopper's Raider 210 rear wheel conversion with all the details he posted?
Not in the tech section ... at least yet. How many others are there?
Maybe a time period established at new launch to request old threads be converted to non-editable PDFs for download.
Once we've hit a deadline for that or it looks like most of the usable info has been mined out for conversion, the locked forum could go down permanently.
Steve has already said he'd keep the data in his possession so if for some big reason it had to be referenced, it could be.
For all that matters, there's nothing stopping someone from starting to copy threads of intertest right now.
Anyone want to give this one a shot?
