I don't think we will lose much with discarding all the old posts. One major plus will be those in search of answers on what was old material will now enter it as a new inquiry and therefore receive new answers, current with todays standards and economy. It will also hopefully encourage more new posts and thereforeincrease forum activity.
The old forum will be kept up for some time for people to reference information. We are not in a hurry to take it down.
calliopeguy</span> has the correct response - new questions will get new answers, and old questions will get new advice/tips. It didnt take long for the old forum to get filled with information, and the new one will be just the same.
