Default Transfer of threads from PA to PA2

I noticed many here are concerned about certain threads at PA not being at PA2


So I asked...Gareth as well as GaiaLove..if there was a way to do this.

The response was..

Yes.

If the OP (original Poster) Registers at PA2 and then msg'es Gareth or Gaialove With their requests to move threads they will respond to you personaly.


I hope this helps....

Dear Celine,

I am wondering as to just what the format is going to be at the new PA2 site. I just get the general impression that it is not going to be forum at all in any real sense, but some kind of 'information portal', with a select group posting certain information and others just 'tagging along'. I may be wrong in this, but this is my general impression. Is this what you understand? Or will it be a standard forum where anybody can post new threads about anything?

The format seems to be the same as here, in general.

The MODS have worked hard to include all aspects of PA in some way or the other....

All registered members will be allowed to post.

Not standard by no means..

Bill, Gareth, GaiaLove, Anchor and many other MODS have worked hard for everyone on this forum..

Well since all of us are moving across, looks like those boys are going to be busy...

Maybe they should just save time and move all of them across in one batch to an Avalon old timers section...

Not all threads coincide with the intent of PA2

The integrity of the content at PA2 is imprtant to the MODS

So threads like "i just saw lady gagas video" probably wont be welcome.



Btw ...before i get accused of trying to be a MOD..i got fed up of people needing to know stuff...and no one was answering..

If it is pretty much going to be the same, but with the added proviso that not everybody will be asked to join, then it seems to me that the only real reason for the transition is to simply have a mass 'clear out' of people considered to be 'undesirables'. In which case, I can only repeat what I said in another post: They should never have ended paid subscriptions. Just my view.

The date is here...MODS are begging to set things into motion..

Weekends are hard because MODS are not all here...so this week should be it.

well I meant a type of archive available through searches in PA2 to if an important thread needs to be brought to the top that a Mod can do it by waving their magic wand.

all threads closed to discussion until they are brought over from archive

remember none of us have a clue what is coming but are just tossing out suggestions that might make the transition smoother.

you know, to remember this bumpy ride transitioning over it would be kind of funny to make the archived section called "The Mists of Avalon"

I always missed an emoticon for RESPECT. Maybe it can be included and applied at PA2...
Something with a hat and a bow...
I am tired of the big thump

Celine: How & when will be the invites be sent out to those that are being considered for the new PA2?

Also, how do they plan on vetting potential new members from the outside of Avalon? Since some of the existing members will drop out from time to time, the membership will drop off, just wondering?

Thanks Celine, hopefully this transitional period will be over anytime now and we can get on back to all the intellectual discussions with that peaceful and lax Avalon atmosphere and better days to come.

But I'm hearing that it will be invite-only or something like that, so I'm not understanding how this is going to work, do you know if all the members currently active will be automatically registered to the new version, and what will happen to new potential members who want to register, or can they register, do you know anything about that?

Cheers,
