    Smile Delete very old thread

    The forum has so much thread such that some sub-forum has over 50 pages. This make thread browsing a little difficult, and eye-tiring.

    I would like to suggest that could we delete some threads, especially the ones that its last posting date is been longer than a year, or the closed thread that has been closed for more than a year, or may be put these very old thread aside into another sub-forum, etc.

    I think this would be better for the users and members. But obviously I would like to hear the opinions of the others.

    So, what's your opinion about this?

    There are options at the bottom of every forum to display threads that have only been posted in witin a certain amount of time, say, a month. You can use this so that you don't see threads from a year ago. So for that reason I will vote DOWN.

    Also from what I have heard, threads and such are never hard deleted if it isn't absolutely necessary. They would be archived as you suggested with a separate sub-forum for them.

    Deleting older threads will cause the post counts of older members to fall significantly.

    We aren't going to do this. Old threads have value and pruning them based on age isn't going to happen.
