Hello,

You can already do this

AdminPanel>Categories&Forums>Click the modify icon>"Position your category after" then select it.

Are you referring to making a new forum altogehor and uploading specified category's to that forum?

Its a good idea

because if someone spam in your old forum

so the good ones categories

just move it in your new forum

so the spammer don`t know where your forum is..

Hello ^^

Voted no for two reasons.

We dont create forums every day and mostly we dont need to make a copy/paste of an old forum.
If feature was there, it would be an excellent way to encourage plagiarism by other admins.

The first time you change your url, 1st one automaticly redirects to 2nd one. If you change again, second url will redirect to 3rd and last one, but first url wont redirect any more.

So if you experience a spam problem your team cannot handle with, you can delete all accounts, all topics, keep your categories and change url twice in a row.

Ok, i dont have spammers, but if i had, i would prefer to get rid of them instead of making them the gift to close my board and restart somewhere else.

So you are referring to move content from one whole forum to a new forum?

Since Forumotion does not allow data transfers between two forums, I believe this would not be implemented.

I voted no.

There are plenty of ways to get rid of spammers without creating entire new forums (IP bans, disallowing guests to posts, etc.). I don't think this is necessary. It seems like something that only a very small number of people will find useful, and thus I don't think it is something that should be implemented.
