Deleting versus archiving

I have archived an earlier version of this page here.

I believe that for the sake transparency and keeping a accessible record of the progressing history of the wiki and what is done to it, and I am not talking about the page history, it would be better if comments instead of being deleted get marked off as completed, obsoleted or what seems appropriate. When the page once in a while gets uncomfortably long it should be archived.

I noted when I went through the entire history of the now archived page that a lot of the comments was unsigned and many of the longer ones later on was cut into pieces by headings, later on to be partially deleted. That makes it very difficult and time consuming to follow what is done and what people laid forth what ideas etc. I am a bit frustrated, although not angry, about that. Luckily there was only a few hundred edits, making it possible to attribute the surviving parts of the comments to an individual author and edit.

As for now I have not used any "fancy" templates when archiving the page, but if needed that can be added later. Johan G 11:21, 9 February 2012 (EST)

I am sorry, you are probably right: it's the better solution. It just didn't occur to me that people might still be interested in stuff that's no longer an issue, i.e. because it was solved. Also, some of the comments were from people who haven't done any wiki editing in years. My next step would have been to go trough the list of "open" issues and suggestions and migrate them over to 2012. What do you think?--Hooray 11:42, 9 February 2012 (EST)
There is no need to be sorry. :-) My frustrations are more related to the entangled edit history than specifically what you deleted, even though it add to it. As for the open issues I agree, it is probably a good idea to copy them over here. Johan G 12:22, 9 February 2012 (EST)
