Any public testing, like getting opinions on avatars and sigs and whatever, will be pointless as no one will even see the thread before it's gone. All private testing has been redundant ever since we finally got a "sig preview" function. Of what use is it?
This. Frankly, there doesn't seem to be any reason to keep Testing as a forum now that all threads are deleted within the hour. Say what you will about tradition (yada yada plebes yada yada lumpenproles yada yada testingstan vendettopaths strak), but now that the board has private testing as the way to go for new sigs and avatars, there's no real reason to not delete Testing other than giving super-mods something to do. I'm pretty sure I'm not alone in thinking that this is a pretty obsolete and pointless forum these days, with the software and deletion-on-whimsy doctrine the board now uses.
So if there's a good showing of support in this thread (read: no matter what happens in this thread) then the mods will do whatever they like on this issue?
