At least slow down the archiving rate for the old threads.

I wonder if it has to do with the servers and space needed. And that;s why they archive on the current time frame.

Nah. A topic tkes up the same space whether it's active, or read-only. They don't need to be archived at all.


This. I assume the reason why topics get archived is to prevent "necromancy", but that's hardly a big issue on old board that are rather slow, anyway. Like sometimes I stumble over an old topic on some game board and I have something valuable to add that someone else might read a couple of weeks/months later, but I can't, because it was archived before anyone could even respond.

The Purge/Archive rates with the way they are now remove value, not add value to the site.
