    Remove unused forums?

    Just had a look at the video game forums, and a couple of them are dead.


    Hearthstone forum was last used about 11 days ago
    Guild Wars 2 days ago
    LoL 9 days ago
    Rift almost a month
    Star Wars 8 days ago

    Would it make sense to remove the forums that don't get used? Maybe roll them back into the general "Video games discussion" forum, and just have a mega-thread for them?

    I think being inactive for a few weeks is far from dead. Maybe slightly unwell - but definitely not dead.

    If a forum hadn't been active for a year - I'd call it dead.

    There are ONLY three possible reasons to vote for Donald J Trump this November.
    You are ignorant, you are irrational or you are incredibly wealthy.
    Be rational, be informed.

    Removing subforums is very disruptive to the people who do still participate there (however infrequent it is) so we try not to do it unless the forum is not having any activity for an extended period of time. A few days isn't really an extended period of time, especially if there are multiple threads still getting some activity.

    FWIW we don't delete them; the threads get merged back into the VG forums so they will still exist for discussion.
