To the Administrators:

This is regarding the "Biblical Translation - Eden" thread. It has been brought to my attention that there is a 300 post limit. We are having a great discussion and are now reaching the 300 post limit, and I have no idea how to get around the post limit. I am hoping for some information or help with our situation.

I am not even certain that I am asking for help in the proper way.

Perhaps one of the administrators can get in touch with me so we can work through our upcoming problem.

Thanks so much,
Ger/Autumnman

There's nothing sacred about the 300 post limit, but it seems to work very well for us. About the only time when threads are allowed to exceed this limit in any substantive fashion is when it seems like discussion is getting at least somewhat close to the end but isn't quite there yet.

Generally, though, a thread is either all talked out or is still in full swing. In either case the thread is closed, but in the latter case one of the participants also proposes a successor thread over at Proposed New Topics.

I haven't been following the thread, so if neither of the other moderators is following it either then one of the participants should let us know if they think they just need a little more time, in which case we'll leave it open for a while, or they need a lot more time, in which case we should close it so a new thread can take over. The fresh start often works really well, often gives a boost and a fresh perspective to discussions that have been ongoing for a while.

Edited by Admin, : Write more clearly.

Continuation of topic thread
Admin Director:

Would "Biblical Translation - Eden 2" be an acceptable "Proposed New Topics" successor thread?

I am new at all this so I am not sure what is acceptable or not.

Thanks for your help,
Ger/Autumnman

Sure. When the thread is closed just go ahead and submit the proposal for the successor thread. What is usually done is to provide a summary in a few paragraphs of the state of discussion of the predecessor thread, but sometimes circumstances point to some different approach.

You should consider charging people some money for starting a new thread. You could also start putting ads, both on-page ads and popup ads, on this site, since it's so popular. In a few years, you could potentially rival google and yahoo.
