Forum pruning

Post by jack »

Should I enable pruning, make the forum start deleting old old old junk that nobody bothers to read anymore? Or should we keep it archived forever and have it go on forever and ever and ever and ever like google!

I'm a neat freak, so I would go with pruning, as long as it really is old old old and not a soul has seen it in ages!

I say we save it all so when we put the KROQ Spy on trial we will have all the info to convict Glenn & Stryker who he must live with since they are never on at the same time

I agree. Miche actually archived the stuff from Yahoo over here too. So, it makes sense to keep it all. Maybe there should be a time limit on keeping it active, then prune it to archives.

Maybe we could have an "inactive" folder, and once it's past a certain date, it would default into there?

Yeah, I'm a sentimental patrack, so I'm all for keeping all the old posts. I mean I know there's like posts from months and months ago, some that never even got replies, but I'd rather keep it there and never check it then to want to check it down the road and find out that it's been deleted. I guess unless space becomes an issue, then you can start pruning them down.

How did you grow up in the 80s without having seen Back to the Future? :o I'm going to go download the Huey Lewis & the News theme song right now.
