Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

TeamBIC_0-1696891494223.png

 

[EDIT 10/16/2023] The Community Forum archival is now in progress! Please note that some Community features (e.g., Community email notifications) will be unavailable while our housekeeping is taking place.

 

Hey there, Beauty Insider Community! 👋 Over the years, we’ve heard members ask for easier ways to find the conversations they’re looking for in Community, and as a result we’ve worked to make several improvements along the way. We’re excited to share that we have another idea to better the Community experience: we’re rolling up our sleeves to do some clean up around the Community Forum! In the coming weeks, we’ll be saying a fond “goodbye” to some older posts that have already had their time to shine so that members like you are able to search and find conversations you’re looking for faster than before. 😊

 

And the best part: your favorite Community posts aren’t going anywhere! We want to assure you that active, popular conversations will not be archived. 🙏 Here’s a behind-the-scenes look at some of the criteria we’ve considered – posts need to check all these boxes to be archived:

  • Created before 2017 – We want to make sure the content you find while searching in Community is still relevant; we recognize some beauty products we raved about years ago may not even be available these days!
  • No replies in the past 2 years – We know that threads created years ago may still have fresh activity today, so we’re keeping those conversations live.
  • Not authored by us, TeamBIC, or any other admins (including ALUMs) – Official Sephora communications will be kept visible to all.

 

Additionally, know that nobody’s Community rank will be affected by this clean up! To learn more about your BIC rank, check out this post: Demystifying the Community Rank System

 

Lastly, heads up that if you try to access a post that has been archived, you’ll be sent to the group page it was originally posted in. From there, hopefully you’ll be able to find a similar conversation or start a new one.

 

While we’re archiving only a small portion of posts on the Forum (for now! The shelves may get dusty again in the next year or two 😉🧹), we’re celebrating all the fun conversations that have taken place in the last THIRTEEN years of Community! Please join us by tagging some of your all-time favorite posts below. 💙

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@TeamBIC   Thank you for continuing to work on our Community!   Archiving older threads is appropriate.  You are going to help keep content current.  Products change so fast so finding up to date content is well needed. 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@TeamBIC Thanks for taking the time to make the community easier to navigate. I love being able to come here to see hauls, get advice, and to cheer one another. It is an awesome community that shows love and positivity.

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

I definitely used to be more active than I am now, which maybe is contributing to my nostalgia for pre-2017 posts.  I'll miss you!

 

But also I'll be happy to see all the posts asking about the downgrades to the Rouge program archived.  😄

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

That's actually a really good idea, @TeamBIC.  There are a LOT of threads that can be archived so thanks for taking that initiative 🙂

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

It looks like it's time for a clean up. 🧹 @TeamBIC Thank you for undertaking this huge task! 💕 This should make sorting thorough threads and topics a lot easier for everyone in the community. 😀

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Great idea!

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Such a great idea @TeamBIC , it will be so helpful I’m sure. Thank you so much for your hard work on this! 💞

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Awesome @TeamBIC , thank you for letting us know ! 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@TeamBIC great idea! 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

This is great to know, I'm sure it will make it easier to find relevant posts! Thanks @TeamBIC  for all your hard work!

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

This is great and this is why I like Sephora because not only can you shop but can chat in a community with other beauty enthusiasts. 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@TeamBIC, OOOKKKAAAYYYY - I see the clean-up's already in effect! 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Oooh, we haven't waved our wands quite yet @danielledanielle! 😅 Notice anything missing that shouldn't be? 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Oh @GeorginaBT , I see the related posts next to this one already titled: ARCHIVED (Mask of the week challenges)  Guess I got too excited, but haven't seen anything that needs tagging yet.

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@danielledanielle Oh oh, gotcha! I mean, I'm excited for the archive too. 👀 Yes, looks like some members add the word "ARCHIVED" to old challenge threads once new ones are created. 😊 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Thanks so much for the cleanup❤️ @TeamBIC 

 

I love a good ol Fragrance thread. Thought this was a cool thread:

Let's get layering!!! (Perfume layering) 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@TeamBIC @Love 🌈🦄📦 THE UNICORN MAIL THREAD 📦🦄🌈 and THE PARTY THREAD just because not a lot of members know about it. 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

Long live these threads @SportyGirly125! 💜

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

@TeamBIC Great idea!  We often end up with a million possible posts/threads when searching a key word.  Having the most active and relevant ones still available is a wonderful idea.  Thanks so much for doing the housework! 

Re: Heads Up! Upcoming Community Forum Post Archival 🧹

🥺 Appreciate the sweet support @missjeanie! And yes, totally agree - the years and years of Community posts have sometimes made it a challenge to wade through allll the beauty posts! We have our clean up work cut out for us ... *cracks knuckles* 😋
