Delte Old Posts

Unread postby RonJK on Sun Feb 19, 2017 10:53 am

What does everybody think about deleting posts and topics over two years old?

As I was spending the last hour deleting spam someone spent a lot of time putting on the forum, I realized that we have some very old inactive topics and posts.

Let me know if you think it is time to clean the forum up and weed out very old posts?

Thanks for the input.

A sad concept, that one, to delete posts of a certain vintage.

A variety of topics is what gives the forum depth,

A good search engine helps to make those posts of good value.

I too would not want to delete any old posts or topics.

Ron - the forum has been inundated with with spam (a lot of it porn) over the last few weeks, after many months of nothing at all. I have been spending about 30 minutes every day, while this has been happening, banning offending IPs, deleting posts and users, in order to keep the forum family-friendly. It is getting pretty 'old' ! Thanks for doing it today - I have not been around for the last 48 hours.

Edit: I just checked recent members and found the accounts that created the spam messages you deleted. FYI - I banned the users IPs (4 of 'em) and deleted their accounts. As per usual the accounts all had Dutch IP addresses and Russian e-mail addresses.

Thanks Limey
I try and keep an eye as best I can and I do get rid of offending material as I see it, but you are probably on here more than I am.

If it gets to be a pain for you just send me an email and I will come in and help out.
