In practical terms, this means the following will happen.

The 3.5, 3.6 and 3.7 forums will be combined into a single "Pre 3.8" forum. This will most likely be termed the 3.x forums. This is not an ideal name since it wont include 3.0 or 3.8, but it will suffice.

The above forums will be closed to new releases. All existing mods will remain open for both posting and download, they will simply not allow new threads.

The [new] combined forums will remain in the main modification and style areas, they will not be moving to the archive area.
'old'? that's very short sighted thinking - Has anyone actually thought about this or are 'we' leaving it up to one person who may or may not be aware that there's a huge subscriber base in play here on the 'old' versions?
