I have to vote for the first option.

The thread is all fine and dandy, but if the pictures are not kept online, then what good are they?
We'l just be filled with half a thread completely dead with redX all over the place.

I suggest a new one is started, and this time, let it have a page limit.
Say, let it have a 100 page limit, then start a new one, release the old, but on the frst post of the new thread, one should give the links for the older (and locked) threads.

This is a good and sensible solution, plus, i might add that if the old threads are not kept with active images, then the whole thread should be deleted alltogheter.
Afterall, its the posters fault for not keeping the images active.

It continue's to consume. I would assume most of its history will never be viewed. I would drop it and start a new one. Give Rogo credit.

even if a new one was started it still has its beginnings with Rogo-san

is there no way to just chop off the first 100 pages >?

Excellent idea Badsight! Reduce the surplus, if possible.

The concept is good; it's a way to see the creative way people are doing screenart. But, I suspect not many look back past a few days. Can we keep the idea, but time-out the images after 2-3 days?

Yes, 3 threads have made far more "damage" than that one, but they are from before your time:

"Completely Pointless Worthless Thread"
6500+ posts.
I don't remember who started it.

"If You Are Bored Post Something Here"
5000+ posts.
Started by: Cowace

"Yanks Asleep Eurotrolls Take Over"
4000+ posts
Started by: Big Lads
Its the mother thread that formed the Eurotrolls, a fun group from wich i'm one of the founding fathers.

As you can see, the High Res image thread can't even cast a shadow on the "old school" threads that we used to run around here in the early days. http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/images/smiley/16x16_smiley-happy.gif

Crazy suggestion:: But they need a serial moderator to Enforce a Rule...

Not just because of Red X, but when you see BIG screenshot you have seen it once and you shouldn't have to look at and load them all again unless you want to so make the screenshots links to click.

Also, that lets people read the thread and talk about all the nice pics because the big pics ruin the text format.

So no pics except for clickable links, and of course crazyivan can volunteer to Enforce the rule by taking out the (img) tags and if some Noob tries it twice then their post just gets Deleted, without comment.
