Mods: Can You Trim It Down?

Can a mod trim down the Rank Them As You See Them thread? There's a lot of fluff around that you have to sort through to get to the good stuff -- the meat of the matter. Posts like "Hey Spiderman comes out" that were made in March and not updated since then.

Please?

[Bando gets a Brazilian in preparation for that distant day when he will be the second Mr. Mini. Oh yes, that day will come.]

If people had followed my guidelines their wouldn't be any fluff. It was supposed to be just lists and no discussions, but I guess I was expecting too much for DVD Talkers.

Some people just can't follow the rules, I guess.

So I guess that's a resounding no, then? I wanted to put together a total 'best of dvdtalk/forum 2002 list' but it would be hard to wade through all that... Oh well

This is a sort of busy time for most everyone on the planet... I'm sure someone will get to it when they have time.

It's a real pain to "trim" down a thread.

The page that lets you do this only shows a couple lines of text from the post, so you're constantly going back and forth between the delete post page and the actual thread to see whether the post is a good one or not. And it's all one long page which makes it easy to lose your place; and the way things are lined up makes it hard to tell which post is which.

The lack of appreciation for whenever I did things like this is one of the big reasons why I quite being an Admin here!

Just kidding!

But it is a royal pain in the ass to do.

Now we know the real reason! Damn_you all! We miss Blade in the mod lounge, and it's all your fault! You couldn't have been nicer to him, huh?

And my apologies - I didn't realise that this thread was nearly a year old.

Oops.
