i got this idea from http://www.rpf.invisionzone.com/
they have a archive. when there is an awesome thread...they put it in the archives so it nvr gets delted, and it is easy to get to.
well these never get delted. but it would be cool.
and with an archive, well not for comps really, but if you need to put up alot of pics, lets say on photobucket, and the pics get delted that thread is useless. but if you archive it. the pics get saved on cf or somthing.
