The following discussion is an archived debate of the proposed splitting of the article below. Please do not modify it. The result was Split.

Forum:Archive1 and all the other Forum archives

All the old forum archives are too long to find anything in. I think they need to be split into threads like the new forums are.

Split - As nominator. PD-R 17:39, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - All the titles are listed at the top, how is it hard? ɳex undique 17:44, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

It takes my computer forever to load, and gives me a ton of lag when I scroll. PD-R 18:07, March 19, 2011 (UTC)
Well, there's one reason for doing it and none for going against it so I guess it'd be okay, but remember RS:BB. Also, what do you mean by "new forums", how the new archives are categorized? ɳex undique 02:21, April 8, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Per Rsa. --クールネシトーク 20:33, March 19, 2011 (UTC)

Neutral - Okay, now I see that the supporters have a point. --クールネシトーク 19:56, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Oppose - Don't touch history pl0x. JOEYTJE50TALKpull my finger 03:43, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Support - The opposes are baseless, splitting it will hurt the wiki in absolutely no way, whereas the nominator provided a legitimate reason for splitting. Those archives indeed are laggy. bad_fetustalk 17:49, March 20, 2011 (UTC)

Support - I agree with chess, there is no harm, other than them time it will take to split them, so there is no reason not to do it. Hunter cape (t) Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask 06:46, March 21, 2011 (UTC)

Neutral - I would say leave it as intended when they were originally archived, however I see why there are those that want to have these discussions split. The only problem I currently see are the links that lead to each archive and the section such links currently house. If we can change them without much delay if this split passes, then I don't see much of an issue splitting said article. Ryan PM 15:40, March 23, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Splitting is fine, if it lags for some people, we should fix that; as long as all relevant links are all changed. 222 talk 10:19, March 29, 2011 (UTC)

comment - Would smaller sections be possible? Might save time over individual pages. Then again might not with linking. Henneyj 02:18, April 1, 2011 (UTC)

Support - Per Brains.

Comment - Can I split all of Forum:Archive1 so people can see how it goes? If it's not liked they can be deleted and the others won't be split. This would be like a test. ɳex undique 20:38, May 10, 2011 (UTC)

Go ahead, if no one has any problems by the time you finish the first archive I will close this. Hunter cape (t) Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask 10:46, May 11, 2011 (UTC)

Closed - The old Yew Grove archives will be split. Hunter cape (t) Sentra246Blue hallowe'en mask 09:13, May 15, 2011 (UTC)
