Delete forum??

Is there any chance you can delete the elections and politics forum? It’s been closed since 2010. Seems silly to even have it listed any longer.

    Also, most of the forums seem to have things pinned that are no longer relevant. It gets very annoying to scroll down a whole page past that stuff. Can they be unpinned so they drop down?

    After having discussed it with my colleagues, we concluded that, as per our policy, we will not delete that forum (as you know we do not delete threads, replies, accounts, forums). The Elections & Politics forum is closed since 2010, so it's not generating new activity. That makes it easy for our community members to simply ignore it. Those who want to linger in there are welcomed.

    @cap Feel free to bring it to the attention of the Forum Champion:
    https://talk.collegeconfidential.com/community-forum-issues/2094692-introducing-the-forum-champions-team.html

    If there is no champion for a particular forum, you can flag a pinned post for a moderator to review.

    Keep in mind that "relevant" is subjective. I personally feel, as examples, that the number of pinned threads in the financial aid and musical theater forums makes it cluttered, but the users who traffic those areas most frequently disagree.
