Split Classic Theme?

gt7319cgt7319c Atlanta, GAMember Posts: 14
Would it make sense, or is it possible, to split the sets currently assigned to the Classic theme in the database into two new themes:  one named Classic containing the sets with the “Classic” branding that were created since 1998, and another named something like Original Classic or Original System?

    Yes that's not a bad idea, given the early stuff isn't actually labelled as classic. What do others think?

    I think that's a great idea.

    I don't really care, but if the difference is between pre and post 98 stuff, it's almost the same as sorting by year released?

    I think it would help collectors, like myself, when making queries where you want the results sorted by some parameter other than set release year.  Making the theme split could eliminate one search argument in the query.  It would also help collectors who are both completists and only interested in either the pre-1998 sets or the new sets and not both.

    I'd vote yes for that, having searched through that theme for the new "classic" sets recently.

    OK -- I've changed Classic sets <= 1970 to 'System'
