I suggest moving to a subforum archive and leave a sticky warning the code is "old" and instructions of how to port it to new code.
yeah, I don't want to delete all of the old posts. Gradual phaseout is gradual. But phaseout means..head in one direction, and keep going

i like galandros' solution, but it would be hard to upkeep since axe is constantly changing. that may be a better solution once axe nears completion though. i think flexibility is key here, as new token names are definitely beneficial, the old ones may confuse new people programming in axe. therefore i like my idea of having a look up table in case a new person stumbles upon some old code, or galandros' solution so that at least the new people know that they're looking at old code, and thus need to convert it. regardless, since you can switch between the token names on-calc, even a non-programmer could figure out how to convert two pieces of code given adequate instruction.

Well we would either need to archive the old posts (or lock them all) or someone would go through the code and change it.

I think SirCmpwn told me earlier that he would like to write a SMF hack that would censor words based on sub-forums, though. That way we could have Tangent( changes automatically to Bitmap(, like how Sir Cmpwn nickname changed to something else for a while and how some forums censors bad words. That could maybe save staff and members a lot of work.

I just feel it kinda sucks that all the old help got obsolete and the work it would require to update it all.
