  • One thing that seems to be happening on the forum a lot lately is that the number of duplicate repost threads has really increased (e.g., seven or eight for the 'Performance' video and loads for the German trick cyclists' video). Velocio has adopted a policy of merging these duplicate threads, which creates a lot of work for him. I thought it might be helpful to have a single thread where helpful forumengers can point out these duplicates so that he doesn't have to search for them if he wants to carry on merging them.

    There should probably a list in the OP of the standard threads, like helmets, that have been merged, to facilitate finding them. I haven't made one yet but may edit it into this OP later. Please post if you have particular threads that you want to see merged, if you want to suggest particular threads as the default threads on any given topic, etc.

    Just a bit of housekeeping. With 20-odd thousand threads, UTFSing is going to be more and more difficult.

  • I'd already asked him if he wants help merging stupid repeats. It'd save a lot of grief. Mostly my grief but grief nonetheless. :)

  • fuck it, let's lock all the other threads so that we can only post in this one. will solve all our problems.

  • Someone's no doubt going to start a 'Merged' thread in no time at all. Forum Help and Testing Area parody threads, anyone?

  • I'd already asked him if he wants help merging stupid repeats. It'd save a lot of grief. Mostly my grief but grief nonetheless. :)

    Do you really think he would give you partial control of the forum? No, you need a new THREAD to do this. :)

  • Well he thought it was a good idea. I don't give a crap either way since one is a neat solution and the other lets me vent at idiots that repeat shit.

  • hippy is MERGE MAN. :)

  • Nope, stil The Postman

  • Why not merge all your posts into a great big single post to end all posts? ;P

  • Because I broke the forum last time I tried that and VB introduced a 4k post size limit. :)

  • hippy - and Oliver - ought you not be getting ready for the Rolla drinks tonight?

  • Clive--ought you not to be getting ready for the Rolla drinks tonight? ;P

    No, I'm first going to an EHBPC afterparty. I might pop round the Palm Tree later if there's still time. Have a fun evening!

    Ha, that doesn't seem to have stopped any of my long posts yet.

    How did you try it? How many posts did you have at the time?

  • Anyway, on to the serious business of this thread. Here's another German Girls (ooh err) thread:

  • Ha, that doesn't seem to have stopped any of my long posts yet.

    It was a few months ago. I just copied and pasted for a LONG time.. server went POP!

  • Nope, stil The Postman

    Wasn't that KC?

    Sorry if I.. etc.

  • Sorry if I.. etc.

    You can't just copy that!

  • You can't just copy that!

    I've only just got that reference.

    That Neuhochdeutsch wit is too much for me.

    il be more careful in the future, or just wont bother, il stick to reading.
