Time to wipe the slate clean?

Recommended Posts

So the forums in their current state have been around since 2016 and I'm thinking it may be time to change things up.  A few ideas:

1.) Delete the forums and either install a different forum software or a different software all together like a blog type system or something similar with features we use the most.

2.) Delete the forums and start from square one with the same software.  Having a relaunch may be inviting for new people, that new car smell and all.

3.) Clean up the forums as they are now, deleting stuff that hasn't been used in a while and give it a good revamp.  The upside to this is we keep what we've been using most the last year or so and clean up stuff that isn't being used.  Can be a soft revamp/reboot.

I'm open to ideas, but these are the options I've been tossing around my little brain.  Your input is appreciated

I'm open for any of these options. A good clean up seems like the best thing moving forward, especially because 99% of it is now book related which wasn't the case 2 years ago for example. A new forum is fine by me, I don't know if it will be difficult to learn for some people? Maybe deleting the forum and starting with the same software gives you the benefit of drawing in new people because 'hey this just started so I'm not behind and can immediatly jump in' but still having the familiar feeling for people who've been here a while.

I find the site pretty easy to use so maybe just reinstalling or wiping away stuff that's not used. That way if you do add stuff you can monitor it easier. 

Sounds like a good old fashioned clean up is in the lead.  Maybe not deleting software but deleting enough to give it a fresh feeling.  I would hate to lose the book stuff we have even if it's not a ton, but I go back and fourth with whether it would be good to just start fresh all together.
