Old Threads Here Now Being Purged!
« on: December 29, 2007, 05:05:37 PM »

Gang, I've found a way to run a mass-delete of topics that have not been posted in for long periods of time.

In this section I feel it only makes sense to clear the old, dead topics to keep our server space in order.

I just ran a purge of all topics that had not been replied to in 180 days or more... it cleared out 34 pages of stuff!  :scared0008:

I'll be doing this from time to time, so if you have an old post in there somewhere that you need to update - please do so, or don't be surprised if it goes missing.

Also, I will no longer be merging peoples' threads. If you choose to start a new BST thread without updating your old one, the older one will be deleted. Still way too many threads in here.....  :r2d2line:

Wiped today, 60 days and older. Have a look - if your thread was deleted (like mine was) you'll have to create a new one.

Gang, I apologize to anyone who's thread got wiped out in the latest purge - I should have given proper notice before getting rid of posts that were that recent. I'm very sorry for any extra work I've caused any of you.  :speechless-smiley-004:

Been over a year since this was tidied up - I know a lot of users have moved on so I'm ready to clean this up again.

PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE update your B/S/T threads in ALL 3 AREAS before November 1st, 2015 if you want to see them in existence after that date.

Thank you!

Cleared out anything that hadn't been updated this year & wound up merging a few users' multiple topics. I think, moving forward, if a topic has gone a full year without any updates it will be fair game for removal - please try to adhere to the 1 topic per user rule & keep your post updated regularly if things change so folks can see what you've got & what you want!  :party0007:
