Next Release: The Archive

I wanted to share my thoughts on the next release for linkFilter, because they may be controversial.

Post Reset / The Archive

I'm going to be moving all posts and sectors except for the very latest ones into a new section of the site titled The Archive. A new heading at the top will allow you to delve into the sectors and visit the heyday of the site. Search will return results from the both areas.

This will allow us to start building a series of sectors that are user moderated and focused on whatever you're interested in. When more of the game mechanics start to come into play there will be reasons to visit The Archive and pull posts into the main area.

User Reset

Once I've introduced some more game mechanics I'll be doing a user reset, pulling everyone back to level 1 and 0 XP. I want to give everyone a reason to start posting again since most users who were here back in the day have already unlocked everything. There will be new things to unlock and new mechanics to allow active users to progress quickly. All posts and sectors between now and the reset will remain active.

Thoughts?

Share them here, in the chat, or on the Discord.
