    Thread Death

    Is it just me or are all threads older than a week disappearing ??

    (I believe the Internet Archive will store it all forever if you choose to do so)

    I haven't noticed anything, but then don't participate in most threads. None of the ones I've subscribed to have gone away, even the inactive ones.

    Under your Settings - General Settings - Thread Display Options:
    Default Thread Age Cut Off:

    You may specify a time period from which to display threads. Threads older than the age you specify will not be shown.
    You may not have it set to default ( for me show all )

    No threads or posts are deleted.

    With the old PEv2 system, threads were deleted if there were no posts for a while. That does not occur with this system.

    If you don't see a thread you're looking for, try using the advanced search.

    If you want a thread to die just mention eating unusual foods while trying to reglaze your bathtub.
