Archive campaigns

Score + 3
Hi there, I would like to put forth a suggestion to be able to archive a campaign much like we do with the maps in the campaigns allowing us to deactivate them without deleting all of the content in case we would like to pull them up again in the future. Now, I think this may be an issue of server space because I can see how Roll20 would not want thousands upon thousands of games simply archived away taking up space when no one is using them. Free players will also have that counting towards their space and may need to delete things in the future as well. I just think it would be an easier way to keep things tidy. Perhaps even the ability to download the campaign to our computers so that it doesn't take up server space and we can import it when we need to use it. Thanks, Jake

Just a note that archiving Maps, Characters, and Handouts in a game is purely a visual/organizational thing. The items are still loaded when your game starts, and contribute to overhead and possible lag in a game if you have too many of them (characters and maps especially).

I would upvote this if I had any votes left. Even if a purely organizational tool, it would be great. Until we get a custom compendium I have games I want to keep for possible re-play or just as a repository for handouts and tokens. My games list get a bit chaotic. For example, I ran a large Dracula game (Gumshoe) and plan to run it again some day. Huge amount of work for that game and Roll 20 gives me no way to reuse the work unless I keep the game active.

I wasn't sure, I knew it helped visually but I didn't know if it affected the space at all (like compression or something) but you just answered that question for me! If this feature were available it would help visually clean up some of the inactive campaigns and if compression was used it would also help free up more server space, maybe?

As someone who has several inactive games I'm unwilling to close in case I want to copy handouts or maps from this would be such a time saver.
