Time to clean up old picture threads?

    Okay, so now that all the attachments have been deleted, is it worth having the mods go through and delete all the old threads that are just "picture" threads (ie Bass babes - Photoshopped TBs - show us your basses etc) and just start new ones?

    Given that all the picutres are now missing I think the old threads are pretty redundant.

    Yeh they are just a waste of forum space, what's the point in having a pictures thread full of text??

    Same, and not allow any text on them. Just make it a Gallery only. That would be great. Then we wont have like pages with just a couple photos and the rest pointless text that could of been sent to that certain user by PM.

    I dont know bout no text at all, but i say every post must include a picture. So for the bass threads, post the pic, and maybe the type of the bass and a description of it if nescesary.

    As I posted on that thread, you want to play, you pay.

    Give me the space, here's my cash...

    That was easy.

    That's one way to stop the "use the search!" bitchin'!
  11. Thor and I are already putting a plan into action about Hot Chicks At Gigs thread and I guess Bass Babes.

    i say dont delete the whole threads, just the posts that are missing the pics.

    example: show your basses thread. that thread has tons of pics left in it, why delete that and expect those guys to go through the hassle of reposting their pics?
  14. The problem is having everyone go through every page and delete theirs that dont work
