Title: "Post-Wiki Workshop" has been merged with "Making Stuff Together"
Post by: mkawa on Sat, 20 June 2015, 21:12:10
We are consolidating forums to clean up frontpage clutter. We are in a bit of a post-wiki era already, so this forum is pretty deprecated, and the great content in here would benefit from the increased viewership in MST.

We're in a post wiki era? Oh so where's the wiki replacement? I'm pretty sure I don't see it. Additionally to now clearing what was left of the wiki, with some valuable info now gone, you also seem to abandon the idea of improving and creating a worthy replacement. Good job.

So you're merging this with the making stuff together subforum, where all information threads will eventually get lost like tears in the rain because of course nobody bumps them. Or rather, nobody should need to bump them if the information is clear enough and not deprecated. The alternative would be stickying them, and then you will eventually end up with so many sticky threads that nobody cares to read them either way, or the subforum becoming unreadable.

You should really reconsider this decision.

I suspect you may have hit the nail on the head there!

Woo!

Would be cool to see other pinned threads cleaned up. Some are highly outdated.

I did look through the stickied threads here, but they seem to be still useful--either for their historical value (the work on geekhack wiki by the old Keepers/Curators team) or current value.  Do you have any specific threads in mind?

Just a few I skimmed through.

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=45672.0 - Many are missing or simply not active any more.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=54680.0 - Perhaps down to Hoggy (not sure how that even works).
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=86163.0 - As above, but it isn't used.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=44165.0 - There are so many new switches with reviews, and they just aren't posted here. Isn't serving it's purpose.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=73331.0 - 3 year old post about iMav needing donations for GH.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=34670.0 - Software test.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=40884.0 - Not relevant to anything used anymore.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=49522.0 - 5 year old post for the wiki that isn't used/updated etc.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=57839.0 - Not updated information about shipping.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=74958.0 - Was useful in a different era of keyboard building.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=37277.0 - Last updated in 2014.

I see, you meant stickies in other subforums.

Well a couple from here, but yeah, lots of outdated things :p

My comments on your recommended un-sticky candidate threads:

https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=45672.0 - Many are missing or simply not active any more.  - true, though until someone puts together a better one, it's something.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=54680.0 - Perhaps down to Hoggy (not sure how that even works).  - can talk to hoggy directly about these
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=86163.0 - As above, but it isn't used. - can talk to hoggy directly about these
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=44165.0 - There are so many new switches with reviews, and they just aren't posted here. Isn't serving it's purpose. - this can be potentially expanded, leaving for now
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=73331.0 - 3 year old post about iMav needing donations for GH.  -unstickied
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=34670.0 - Software test.  - and a very useful one!  I use it for every new keyboard build/PCB test.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=40884.0 - Not relevant to anything used anymore.  - unstickied and moved to Signature Plastics subforum.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=49522.0 - 5 year old post for the wiki that isn't used/updated etc. - leaving for now for historical value / progress log, in case someone decides to revive the Wiki.  Modified the title slightly.
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=57839.0 - Not updated information about shipping. - PM'd the OP
https://geekhack.org/index.php?topic=74958.0 - Was useful in a different era of keyboard building.  - unstickied
