Are you sure of this? My guess is that it wasn’t initially a subforum of CD, and was made one at some point, at which point the CD restriction automatically carried over.as far as I can remember, it was open for new threads, even if it was a subforum of the Cultural Discussions forums.
Done and done!- Put a sticky thread on top of the forum to explain the purpose of this forum.
We had included that many years ago because postiversaries used to be celebrated religiously and some people did not wish to be congratulated every 1000 posts. Over time, the tradition of celebrating postiversaries has gotten much less consistently upheld, so at this point there may not be a need for a "Thanks but no thanks" thread. I would suggest seeing how this new forum develops and then revisiting the idea in the future if it seems wise to do so. What do you think?- Also include the "Thanks, but no thanks" as a sticky thread on top of the forum (this is the thread in which people could opt out of being celebrated in this forum).
I think the custom of celebrating members regularly, based on the number of their posts, basically stopped when the forum switched over from Vbulletin to Xenforo. With Vbulletin, the number of posts of a user was visible under the username on the left of his post while with Xenforo, you really have to hover over the username to see how many posts he/she has, so it is not really easy to notice at a glance.Maybe because the forum was locked. 😬😅
