Re: A Auto delete posting if max 10.000 postings

I think what Alexander is suggesting is to automatically delete old posts once the number of overall posts reaches a certain limit, like 10000.

Re: A Auto delete posting if max 10.000 postings

And which post would you like to delete ?

  • The oldest one ?

  • The thread that hasn't been replied for the longest time ?

  • The oldest thread that is not sticked and hasn't been replied for the longest time ?

  • The $last_pid-10000th post ?

It would have to be this option. Stickied posts have been made sticky for a reason so you should make sure they don't get deleted.

Re: A Auto delete posting if max 10.000 postings

I agree, but that wasn't very clear from the initial question smile

Actually, I was giving a thought at this kind of "cleaning old stuff" mechanism. Something like "In some selected forums, delete all the threads that haven't been answered for the last 3 years.

Exactly. But three years is a very long time. we are now at 130,000 messages per month with 20,000 members sun where 3,000 people are now online;)


So an automatic system is welcome.
