To keep the forums running smoothly and to get rid of a bunch of errors that were happening, we recently cleaned up the forums. With this you should notice several things...
1. There are a lot less members. We deleted all accounts that were not logged into within 365 days. This was an important clean up since member data takes up a bunch of space on the server.
2. There are a lot less posts. Any topic that had not been posted in within 30 days was deleted (except "stickied topics"). Posts take up the most space on the server, and can drastically slow things down and make things not work properly.
3. There are sections gone. Since the clean up of the topics left a lot of sections empty or with only a few posts in them, we felt it was best to get rid of some, and combine others. The "Spill It" section is now used for anything you want to discuss (school, music, books, other tv shows, movies, sports, etc). We also combined "Other Supporting Cast" and "Guest Stars" topics into one.
4. We have removed the "Member Map" feature. It would outdated and unfortunately it was no longer supported by Google Maps.
We are certain that these changes will help the forums run quicker and more smooth.
