Hi Guys, long time no post.

In his initial post, repeated in later ones, Artashes noted that many of even the most popular discussions have entered a decline. I know this is true in the ones I follow most closely, about business managing and writing/editing.

I propose closing out and archiving all those large, unwieldy discussions. While many of them contain useful information, reading through thousands, or even mere hundreds, of posts takes time and energy, and so cuts into what should be the principal occupation of anyone reading them: a flourishing freelance practice of [you name it.].

Those of us who are historically minded might like access to these older discussions but, in many cases, information and standards have changed enough that I don't recommend relying on either business management or writing/editing information from even 3 years ago.

A new platform deserves new discussions.

(In addition, I've always found a lot of misinformation, or highly-localized information, floating around the discussions I monitor. This is not helpful.)
