Replacing the Archive with a label/tag and filter

PostReplacing the Archive with a label/tag and filter

It might be more semantic to have - rather than Archive forum - a "Best Of" label/tag that can be applied to threads. The best threads would then be viewed via the label filter.

Is this OK? Anyone have strong feelings one way or the other?

Sounds like a good idea to me. Threads can also then get tagged while still ongoing, which might be nice

Only just seen this but yes I agree totally.

AFAIK / IIRC the Archive was part of the old GR structure and it made sense to have it - a way to curate good threads and preserve them from the automatic purging that would happen when an inactive thread got so old. As we don't purge threads on GRC, there's no need for the Archive from a preserving perspective.

So the only other reason to have it is to highlight good threads, which a tag would do. Plus the tag wouldn't mean our best content is forever locked away and not comment-able upon. (I know posting in ancient threads causes other tech issues though...)

I know a good forum software we could use with native thread tagging.

I've split out discourse chat to the global stickied thread, sorry for going off topic.

Would the threads show up only if you select the filter? Or would they also show up if you just have no filters selected?

If we're getting rid of the archive and just having all the threads in there I'd probably say it might be best to have an option to hide threads with a certain filter so that you don't get the archive ones showing up mixed in with regular ones. Though I guess this would only be an issue with recently tagged threads that are still on the first page of a sub-forum, after that they'd just drop off the front page entirely.
