What to do with a dead forum

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Ive been looking around the INTERNET at dead forums. we should do something with these abandoned web spaces. what could we do? an example forum is http://www.osx-e.com/forum/

they remind me of the Powell Square building in Saint Louis. Abandoned building (forum) full of graffiti (spam). (hey i love graffiti, just giving an example)

It looks pretty dead to me. All of the recent posts are all spam messages, and there's a thread in the announcements that said they got a new webpage back in 2008.
