This website is dead and when CJayC implemented no archives/purges for social boards like 10 years ago, i guess it made sense to save on server costs or something

But nowadays most old social boards have like 10-50 users and we should be able to have a conversation without the topics being purged after 3 days of inactivity.

@SBAllen add archiving or increase the purge range to like 4 weeks. thanks

But this will probably just die off like the other petitions on the matter made in the past

just keeping tagging @SBAllen in every post since this is probably a 5 minute change he could just do with no ramifications

I doubt it's a 5-minute change and repeatedly pinging the admin is only going to make him more inclined to ban you than it would be to get him to do anything.

Adding archiving to social boards no. I see the reason behind game boards but social boards there here to let us socialize so I don’t see a need there.

Purging times have been laid out already and as far as I know no plans to change them.

If a topic purges I don’t see it as a big deal. I’ve had a topic or two purged before it’s not the end of the world for me.

I really don’t see your reason behind this suggestion where some ideas have been shot down before.

My reasons are spelled out in my original post and just because you don't care about them doesn't make them invalid hth

but allow users to opt out of archiving, some people post stupid things as teenagers that they will regret 10 years later.

Your semester of webdev has left you too confident with no actual experience. Pretty much change boils down to "changing a handful of variables". That doesn't mean it's often easy.

Sign for increasing purge rates.

Strong anti-sign for adding archives to social boards.
