New Board added for Discontinued Projects
« on: July 02, 2011, 03:16:55 pm »
Similar to United-Ti, Omnimaga now has a board for discontinued projects.  If a major project, meaning a project with its own subforum, is no longer being worked on, it will be relocated to the board "Discontinued Projects."  All topics will be locked but 100% viewable.

Generally speaking, all projects in the folder will have source code available, for example the recent relocation of Seek and Destroy.  If another member wishes to continue the project, the project will be returned to its original location.

Note that if a project has been finished successfully and released, it will not be moved to Discontinued Projects.  For instance my ASM Tutorials have not been relocated.

I am happy about that. Now the forum will feel less crowded. How will a project be determined to be dead, by the author, or by the admins? I'm afraid that when some projects are about to be moved, the author will wake it up, and it will stay.

Sounds good :)
mrmprog: probably by either explicit announcement of the author or after discussion between the author and admins.
Edit: And yeah, it should help clean things up a bit. I did like having it like that on UTI.

Yes but can the projects that are already discontinued be moved EXAMPLE: Star Fox
This used to contain a signature.

I think that's part of it, yes. And Star Fox never reached a state of completion. However, I'm not sure it was ever given its own subforum.

Calcdude84se hit the nail on the head.  Someone can announce their project as dead, or else it will be a discussion.  In some cases, maybe a project will be moved and then the author himself will decide that he wants to try working on it again, meaning the project will be moved back.

Good move. It makes the active projects forum less cluttered, but we can still visit and pay our respects to the casualties of time and disinterest.

I agree. When I first joined I was very disappointed to find an awesome project, and then see that the last post was a year ago. hopefully this will remove those kind of disappointments.

Plus it gives someone a chance to say "Hmmm...interesting project.  So the author doesn't plan to work on it?  Sweet, that means I can take over!"

I really don't know if it should be placed on the front page.  That's a DJ decision :)

Major projects that are no longer being worked on.
Just noticed :P

Anyway good idea.  Looks like it could organize the projects a bit ;D

Hmm nice move, but I disagree that the topics should be locked, else everytime someone revives a project or wants to discuss it, we'll have to unlock them..

Also for older projects, I think this should only apply to recent ones, because else it will be hard to search through the 700 topics in the project/ideas section for dead projects. (back then the sub-forums were simply removed)
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Good point. I'll fix that.
