We need some helpers with free time to 'tidy' the forum.

- The Solved section contains various photo and video threads. We'd like these moved to either a Photos or a Videos section, and renamed appropriately (i.e. Not just "Unknown 1970s crash")
viewforum.php?f=46

- Fulfilled Requests is the same story.
viewforum.php?f=45

I want all of these sections emptied of posts because I'm going to delete them, but I don't want to delete valuable material. There are only a few pages of posts in each forum so it could be completed in a few days/weeks.

I'd be willing to help with this, though I have no experience with moderating. But I can't imagine this would be too difficult a task.

Cheers mate :thumbsup: It's very simple to move threads, or even merge them. I can help you out if needed once I've handed over my power!

I'm sorry it's a bit of a rubbish clear up...well, it's not rubbish, there's some really important stuff in there. But it's all over the place and needs to be consolidated into one forum rather than across three or four!

Do you have any preference over which you'd like to do?

I might do the 'Fulfilled Requests' section.

Righto! I'll have a fiddle for the next few minutes and see if I can get you moderating powers for that section.

Check back in about 15 minutes.

Simon is doing a superb and very thorough job of this so far.

If anyone else wants to offer to clean up the Solved IDs section, I'd really appreciate it.

theracer120 very kindly went through many pages of Fulfilled Requests, renaming most of them and moving several hundred over to Crash Videos/Crash Photos or other sections. This week, 7 pages/300+ threads remained and I spent the last three whole days removing them. And so, Fulfilled Requests is now deleted. I am about to promote theracer120 as full moderator of the Video & Photo Requests section.

Now, I'm working on the Solved section. It's taking around 3 hours-ish per page. I've moved 150 threads in the last three days. 5 pages remain.

If anyone would care to become a temporary moderator and help me in this, I will be very grateful because this is likely to be my last free week for some time.
