Since this project has been dead for years, perhaps the topics should just be normal Mapping Mania discussions? This way anyone can reply to them and don't have to be part of the group. And maybe the HOT TOPIC ones should be removed?

What do you guys think? Just a random idea. Very Happy

I'd probably agree.

12 years ago. That is the most recent post date in this section... You can not be caught wrong, Chris.

I'd like input from veteran moderators on this issue. It's been so long since I registered, I forgot exactly why new users weren't granted access to Advanced Mappers.

But what's also important to bring up - is the purpose of its existence due to circumstances that no longer exist?

One last thing to bring up - whether or not every user is granted access to that section, is there any reason we shouldn't just have its current threads viewable by all ... whether or not you're allowed to post on them?

I'm not a moderator, but the Advanced Mappers forum was related to a tutorial that Jack Ryerson was developing but was never finished. Only veteran mappers were able to contribute. Since the mapping tutorial isn't going to happen I don't think there is a need for it anymore. However, there are a lot of interesting topics and discussions there that it would be nice to have opened up.

I was around when the Advanced Mappers section originated and my recollection matches what Barry is saying. If I also recall correctly, members of the forums below the "moderator rank" were not natively able to access the section but were actually given access by moderators and above based on some criteria (most presumably that they were considered good/great/outstanding/bloody brilliant mappers).

The idea behind having such a section was nice (though it's open to debate if it was a bit elitist, so to speak), but sadly I don't think much really ever came out of it.

Cheers,

Ariel

I'm all for merging the forums. Since it no longer serves its original purpose there's no point keeping the two forums segregated.

I'm for a merging of the two forums as well. Thanks for everyone's feedback on this issue, and also to Chris for bringing up the topic. It's good to see a loose end tied up. Smile
