Subject:Did you get Archived? Here are some options:
Did your mentor group thread get moved to this forum? If so, chances are it was to make room for a new group. There are several options to continue with your group here or to disband:
So right now we will allow the current mentors and group to 'disband' should they want to. It is a lot of work to lead and keep track of 5-10 people and we thank them VERY MUCH for getting their group of New-Years beginners into the triathlon lifestyle.
What happens next?
Your group can disband
You can join a new group if available with the newest program if you still want to be mentored.
OR your group can keep going here should you like, even if the mentor leaves.
You can also still link your group thread and members into your training log to stay in contact.
Your old group thread will still be available here to use and post on.
Again, thanks to ALL the mentors for making the first program a success. It was a lot of hard work on their part to keep their group going, to check-in and to answer questions. Our goal of this was to help as many New Years resolutionists as we can to get past that first month and to build momentum. I hope we were able to help!
Subject:Really, there is nothing wrong with being archived!
It's ok. It's not the end of the world thread. Please continue the discussion if you want.
The main reason to archive is, for most threads, it keeps them under 100 pages as they usually start a new mentor group in the live forum - anything much above that and accessing a long thread causes more work for the server. If there are a few, it's one thing...but keeping mentor groups going...and going...and going...will put a real strain on resources with the current setup.
Archiving a few times a year and going live starting all over is a good thing to keep the forums faster overall.
