Not bashing ANU or any other group or person, but I feel compelled to point out some reality.
This thread is the last thread of the forum. It is more than a year old, and despite being in the Watercolor forums it contains no information concerning watercolors.
- Remove forums that have had no new posts in a 3 month period, no new replies in a 6 month period.
- Require forums to be specific to the sub-forum in which they are placed. Every post, even from a sponsor, should address the sub-forum, not shotgun advertising or random key-tickling. Example - this forum and this thread are in the Watercolors sub forum, yet offer nothing for watercolorists.
Not my sandbox, but when I'm looking in the watercolors sub forum I want to see watercolor stuff, not random advertising. It is a sure way to ensure I won't look at anything else anywhere else by that poster.
Remember, less than 5% of a market will ever complain - they'll just find something else.
