A sub board, for completed threads

Could completed / actioned threads be removed to a sub board within the suggestions board?

I don't agree because some threads are mistakenly marked as completed when they're not. Some responders even mark their post as answered simply because they've answered a question but the thread is definitely not completed.

I think Joy is talking specifically about the Suggestions Board. It does have some merit but the big question is who decides if something is completed or otherwise?

If it is a suggestion for an enhancement which is subsequently implemented then fine, but what about all the other postings, comments, whinges etc - not so easy to determine, perhaps?

Yes, I am writing specifically about the suggestions board, and those specifically that have been locked, one example being:

Hi Joy

At the moment there are no specific plans for this, however I personally would like to see quite a marked overhaul on the boards in general so that specific posts can be found much quicker, and to make the over all view much tidier.

I have already made that proposal ( last month so would have been early June ) and the proposal is being looked at but do definite plans yet.

If however we can do this, then I will be adding your initial suggestion into this as part of the development.

To be clear - I don't want any vital information or help to be lost. I just think that the over view could in general be tidied up and would make it easier I think as well for any new board members.

Alison it seems that EVERYTHING is being "looked at" but nothing is being done.
