I am going to do some pruning. We have nearly 200,000 messages on the board.
Any old threads (over 1 year old since they were last posted in) that is not in a sticky area and set to sticky I will look at deleting.
If there is anything out there that is locked or is a really good thread, it will need to be moved to the sticky subjects area and made sticky.
Any problems, let me know.

Anything we can do to help Colin? ;D I guess I should delete some of my 300 messages, that would help :-[December 8, 2008 at 8:53 pm #115306AnonymousInactive
Not to worry. This can be done automatically. This forum has a few good tricks hidden in the back.
The only problem is, it will delete EVERYTHING, unless you have put it up safe. For that reason I thought I would let you know. I am looking at deleting anything that has not had a post in over a year, so they will be old topics. As I say making them sticky will make them safe from the automated cull.

Any chance of you being able to retrieve a thread or two Colin? :-\December 16, 2008 at 7:40 pm #115308AnonymousInactive
Sorry, not as such. I did make a back up of the forum, but it would take a lot of work to find a single thread. What I will look at doing is making a a few changes to the web site. If that goes well, then I will look at recovering some of the old threads that disappeared recently.
This week end I am going to look at putting the forum on hold as I move to the new server. When the new server switches on the forum will automatically appear on the new server. When I put it on hold I can move all the threads, members and everything else to the new server.
The reason I am doing this, is because I can not get the photo gallery and a few other things to work on the current server.
If it runs smooth, I can look at fixing the likes of the old threads. If it does not run smooth, I will be trying to fix it, or in the worst case, move back to the old server.December 16, 2008 at 7:44 pm #115309
