jakoz said:Actually, for what it's worth, there is no technical reason for trimming the forum. We're potentially losing good posts. The posts are text, and the entire writings of the entirety of Bluelight's history would present a *very* small archive. It is text, after all. If they're hosting an image gallery, it isn't a consideration.
The only other reason would be slowdown caused by a large database, bit that isn't it either. I've never seen the site slow down, and vBulletin is very efficient with large sites... that's why I picked it... we were growing rapidly at the time.
