I now have set an automatic process to get rid of any topic which has not been commented on in exactly one year. :rage: (The Weather forum is set for 30 days, in order to keep it most current.) Unlike the current method, this is not reversible.

If there is a topic of yours that you don't wish to have go away, make it into a Sticky. (Comment if you don't know how.) Stickies will never be pruned.

I might introduce a new hidden forum somewhere for an archive, in case there's a lot of stuff we want to save. Let me know if you want that to happen.
I might increase the pruning to two years, just to give a long archive of posts for new members to take a look at. Would that be a navigation problem for anybody?
No, not at this point. Maybe revisit it in another year?
‘Meow’ says the knitter. :twisted:
