Hey Gang,
One of the reasons the Forum was such a problem to move during our server change was its massive size.
To avoid these breakdowns in the future, I've had to initiate some changes.
I have deleted a ton of old posts and topics that have been idle for years.
I've also instituted a new maintenance protocol for the site.
For now on, any post or topic that has not had any kind of activity for over 450 days will be removed.
I am willing to extend or modify this, if anyone has a problem and can give me a good reason not to.
We had one set of posts that was a screen capture tourney of some kind.
It was nearly 1000 posts, each containing graphics. That's the sort of thing that simply can't live here forever.
I'm open to any input you might have on the subject, however, we do have to find some kind of limitation, particularly when it comes to large amounts of graphics that no one is even looking at anymore.
I hope you will work with me to continue to find ways to improve the environment here.

Sounds perfect. Don't give it a second thought, you're doing a great job.  Smiley

+1.  Less clutter is a good thing.
