I've noticed that a lot of the time, discussions on the Yew Grove are archived just because they haven't been edited in two weeks or more. But a lot of the time those discussions weren't over yet. Just because there hasn't been any comments on it in a while, doesn't mean that it should be archived. I think we should make it a Yew Grove policy to archive discussions only when they are over. If a discussion hasn't been edited in a long time, then end the discussion and make it a policy before archiving it. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 13:41, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Support - I was wondering why some of those discussions were archived. o_O Andrew talk 15:24, 31 January 2009 (UTC) Support - I agree with you 100%. Prayer Jediadam4 (Talk) Bandosgodsword.gif 22:41, 31 January 2009 (UTC)

Comment: You're probably referring to me recently archiving the page. The reason I did that is because it was colossal. It was big enough to cause serious laggage to my whole computer when I loaded the Yew Grove. As I stated in one of my summaries, I targeted the discussions that hadn't been posted in for a couple weeks. The implication with those discussions is that there is no longer anything worth discussing, and as such, they can be archived. If those discussions are still ongoing, and don't need archiving, then fine. But we can't have a 175-KB Yew Grove page. Maybe it needs to be broken up into subforums or something to keep that from happening. --Andorin (Talk) (Contribs) 06:24, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Well, I'm also referring to other archives of the Yew Grove. But I just mean that before you archive something, make sure you put the consensus into effect. For example, the Wiki world is still on the sitenotice, and still marked as proposed. And we didn't put any .OGG files on the wiki. The Adventurers' Tales discussion did not reach consensus. And a lot of more recent discussions ended, but you deleted the old ones instead of the ones that were actaully finished. White partyhat old.png C Teng talk 15:05, 1 February 2009 (UTC)

Comment The #Splitting up the Yew Grove suggestion seems like a good way to fix the lag. I just want to only archive discussions after the consensus has been put into effect. If a discussion hasn't been edited in a while, it's fine to archive it, as long as consensus has been reached (unless it turned into a large argument where it is clear no consensus can be reached), and that the wiki should start doing whatever it is the consensus was (for example, making the wiki world official).
