Yappi Archive Forum

I just finished flipping through all 9 pages of the archived thread forum and was struck by the fact that there are a LOT of threads in there that don't warrant being archived, including many that have no replies at all. I'd say at least 6-7 pages of the threads that were saved don't warrant such treatment. I also think there are probably quite a lot of threads that do (or would) deserve to be saved, that aren't in there.

I was wondering who chose threads to be archived as it sure seems to be pretty random for a lot of them. Can a mod just decide to toss something in there? Was-Is there any criteria at all?

It certainly isn't a major issue, but I think for most posters a quick flip through the pages would cause most posters here to agree that there is a lot of garbage in there.

Most web-sites I frequent that have Forums where they archive or sticky posts do so with an eye toward "preserving our best work" and one can substitute most interesting, entertaining, provocative, etc. for the word "best" also. I am not so foolish as to believe that archiving any thread will "preserve it" forever but I did choose to dive in there today in the hopes of finding a real treasure trove of good stuff. I did find some golden nuggets to be sure, but I wouldn't call the whole collection a treasure trove by anyone's stretch of the imagination.

I agree, I should have at least 8 post archived, but yappi deleted instead.

Yappi is too busy creating a thread for every movie that comes out and moderating the demolition derby forum to have time for minor issues like this.

The Fairwood King thread is still the best ever. Wherever that is it should be brought out again.

Ice skating? midgets? the circus? Dwarf tossing? Steubenville?

That thread had it all.

It was the funniest thing to ever appear on these pages and nothing else was close/is close.

As far as an actual game thread, I'd go with the thread from the Mooney/Steuby game in 2007. Epic banter between two of the most insane fan bases this site ever had with both teams riding massive unbeaten streaks.

There's still no pictorial evidence of anyone streaking or a fight in the parking lot, but some of those stories have to be true.

The born and “died” on the Fourth of July thread was another classic.

besides, a good thread involves good back and forth, not one group talking amongst themselves the whole time in an echo chamber. That's boring.

My favorite part of that thread was when Yappi locked it with the message "Uncle Ted, you are disgusting. You're banned from this website and don't ever come back."

And as far as I know he never did let Ted back on the site.

Good on Yappi. Anyone actually know how you'd even get around being banned? Dark web hacking type stuff?

Heard UT did show up a short time later under (Bill Hicks?). For some reason Ey complained about it and got Ted banned again. Why would the name BH offend Ey??

Heard UT was part of the "anonymous" group.

Looks like EY needs to learn how to edit a post rather than posting a duplicate post with his minor edit in there.

Never had anything to do with you getting banned.

Ted was banned and told by Yappi himself to never come back, so I doubt Username is him.

Yeah, I doubt Yappi would pull such a public tough guy routine and then immediately cave.
