She's missed meals at RI for two days now and I'm getting worried. Has anyone seen her around? Did she change her schedule? Why wouldn't she tell me? I thought we had something special. u_u

lmao hi there Lord_Wombat
my bad, I'll translate

I frequent Random Insanity which, according to the purge schedule in the Help Files, is supposed to be on a 3-day purge rate. But nothing has purged the past two cycles, and there are still topics from as far back as 2/1 UTC sitting around.

I'm not sure if other faster or slower boards are experiencing this as well because I don't pay enough attention to them, so I do also wonder if others have noticed something similar.

I can't tell if something's just broken or has changed across the boards recently. But if the schedule has indeed changed, I haven't found any information detailing the new schedule yet, which would be appreciated.

There was a petition about this on SS and apparently Devin changed the purge rate:

Huh, I saw this post recently: https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/7-site-suggestions/77451872

He just locked the topic without explaining anything, so I assumed that he meant "this has been addressed in the past and we're gonna continue not changing anything". But maybe he actually did change the purge rates.

I thought the same thing to be honest, lol

Thanks for the link to that SS topic, guys. That's awesome if we do have a slower purge now. Hopefully we'll be seeing an updated schedule in the Help section soon... 🤔

You're correct. Just haven't updated the help page yet. Consider the new rates in sort of a testing phase.

The new purge rate is meant to keep _more_ topics on boards for longer. Previously it was entirely based on how many posts a given board had, but now it'll be tied to just how far down the list a topic is.

While testing will we have an idea of how long topics stay up for and I assume this is site wide testing.
