New Forum Yew Grove

Sannse has implemented the new forum Yew Grove that has was selected by a community consensus. I have gone ahead and copied the entire RuneScape:Yew Grove to the forum, but the history of each edit was not moved to each forum page, as I can't do that because each topic was not previously on it's own page.

I am currently in the process of moving all links and redirects from RuneScape:Yew Grove to the new Forum:Yew Grove.

For all previous discussion, and to continue to contribute, please visit the Forum:Yew Grove. Thanks!

It appears that the list of topics is drawn by the pages contained in the Category:Yew Grove, but as it is internally categorized, I'm not sure how we can remove topics from the list to archive them, as we cannot remove the category from the page to remove it from the list. Are we to simply copy the discussion and paste it in the archive's and request a speedy delete on the page? 14:34, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
The list only shows the most recent topics, so older topics are really naturally archived by dropping off the bottom of the list. They are still retrievable via the category, but it's only those recently edited that will be up front. Some wikis put an "archived" notice at the top of older topics, to discourage people from continuing old discussions... but otherwise, I would suggest you just let them fade away.
It's possible to "sticky" threads you want to hang around of course, see here for how it's done -- sannse<staff /> (talk) 15:26, 12 March 2009 (UTC)

Also, taken from my requests for Admins

I have taken the liberty of moving the Yew Grove to the new Forum:Yew Grove that has been set-up by Sannse. There are some redirects I need changed:

MediaWiki:Monaco-sidebar - I need the Yew Grove link changed to the Forum:Yew Grove MediaWiki:Recentchangestext - I need the Yew Grove link changed to Forum:Yew Grove

The Site Notice, we are no longer discussing how to split the grove, so that can be changed. And also, to notify the users of the changes would be great. I will be focusing on changing links, so if anyone can help, that would be grand. Thanks!

The redirects appear fine, as I see no double redirects or broken redirects... 14:36, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
The only problem is links such as RuneScape:YewGrove#Example where it would have to be manually changed... 14:40, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
How about I set up a bot to check for every Yew grove link and convert it to the new one? - TehKittyCatTalk Wikian-Book 20:23, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
I don't think that is necessary anymore. Over time those linked discussions will be forgotten, and if needed, can easily link here, which the search bar can be used, and if was a link for a past discussion, it will still go to the archive. No need for that now, but thanks. 20:28, 12 March 2009 (UTC)
