Outdated Anouncement Threads What to Delete?

Hi fellows!! : )
There is a huge list of outdated announcement threads (those you can see on the top of the list of threads when you go into a forum section like a language team section. Most of those threads were created in the
http://forum.linguisticteam.org/board1-t…ational-lounge/ and
the announcement feature allows them to show up in the sections of the
forum that we select.

Which threads do you find still useful? There were some threads from old meetings announced this way which I deleted already. But there are, for example, announcements of Updates in Pootle, Ukraine Sattelite TV Announcment, Update of Priority List (they are all outdated).
Just removing the announcement feature might be enough to clean a bit the language teams forum sections while keeping the original threads in their sections. what do you say?

To help you find them, despite that all those announcements show up in the language teams sections, some of them were created in these locations:
- http://forum.linguisticteam.org/board1-t…on-box-general/

- http://forum.linguisticteam.org/board2-l…-english-dep-t/

- http://forum.linguisticteam.org/board2-l…am-playgrounds/

If the Update of Priority List is outdated, shouldn't it be deleted? Do you keep it for some reason, Nomada?

I am asking because there are other options, like updating it and keeping it there.

I think we could have better results by putting other type of information that helps newcomers to integrate, in one or two announcements, maximum. The priorities would have more success if we make them a regular subject, like in the meetings, and each person promotes them in their teams and networks in search for volunteers to help with it. If we focus our promotion in them, because we find them important projects, there will most likely be more people focused on those projects. Just by telling they are priorities doesn't seem enough, besides that priorities is a subject that tends to deviate focus away from collaboration and more into discussing why this TZM item is less priority than that TVP item and vice versa, bla bla bla :nohear: We promote those 'waste' of discussions when we use not so clear terms like 'priority list'.

I don't think I am the right person to have an opinion about this, as I have been away from the team for a while. However, I do feel that it would be nice to have some time for priorities discussion in the meeting.

Consider that the forum has been (ab)used as a kind of placeholder (sometimes more like a round peg in a square hole) for a lot of information that is much better served from a website. Once the member portal is launched, the forum will no longer need to handle many of the things that it is trying to currently handle.

Rod, please don't delete announcements.
Instead, if they are no longer needed as announcements, switch them over to a standard thread and, if necessary, move them to a more central location like the International Lounge (no announcements should have been created within a language team section, but I found at least one that was).

Big Hugs!
