Suggestion: Archive (move) old Beta threads from current forum

Recommended Posts

When searching for existing threads relating to a recent issue I encountered - to see if I wasn't repeating someone else's issue - I found myself trawling through threads relating to old Beta versions going back a few years. (There are currently 76 pages of threads in this forum, the majority of which probably won't be relevant to the current Beta.)

Would it be possible to have the threads relating to the current Beta in their own separate forum to make it easier to find stuff related to the current Beta release?

A possible structure could be as follows:

Affinity Designer Beta Forums (current Beta only)
- Designer Beta 1.7 on Windows
- Designer Beta 1.7 on Mac
- etc.

Archived Designer Beta Forums (all previous Betas)
- Archived Designer Beta on Windows
- Archived Designer Beta on Mac
- etc.

This would make it much easier for people to search for issues in the current Beta and, therefore, allow people to see if an issue has already been submitted which would also give the support staff less work to do reading duplicate posts.

I've also found myself searching for previous Topics on Beta releases.

This would be helpful.

Best regards!

Sounds like a good proposal to me, too. Would definitely help when searching.
