Reply to "Some OGR Forum History Questions"

...It looks like all of the subjects need to go through a spring cleaning.  Many posts are long out of date and if possible should be deleted.  This isn't meant to be negative but why keep so much stuff posted when it's no longer needed?

We used to prune (delete) inactive threads from the forum after a certain time. It was an automated process. However, in the process of deleting these old threads and the "SOLD" threads in the For Sale forum, we made a terrible error. There was a long-running thread about the Natty Boh Reefer that was very interesting. The OP was Paul Strickland (VaGolfer1950) and he had put a lot of effort into starting and maintaining the thread. This popular, long-running thread got deleted! The word "sold" had been added to the title, and the automated process of deleting the "SOLD" threads on the For Sale forum got this one! Paul has never forgiven me and I don't blame him. He has not posted here since December of 2019.

We don't have to pay extra for disc space because its very cheap. You can buy a 4 Terabyte drive at retail now for about $100. Just a few years ago that kind of disc space would have cost thousands of dollars. So, we no longer delete old threads, however we do close them after six months with no activity.

If you ever run across an old thread that you would like to see re-opened, report the thread to the moderators and ask that it be re-opened.
