I always thought O/T was the trash, that's why we send so much O/T from the main forums into it

There might be some valuable information in OT-Technical.
But for others, I don't see the point in keeping them.

  • OT - General
    pruned after 2 months
  • OT - Technical
    pruned after 6 months
  • OT - Entertainment
    pruned after 2 months
  • OT - Sports
    pruned after 2 months
  • OT - Gaming
    not pruned
General - This is a hard one as some information lies at both ends of the spectrum, not worth keeping and worth keeping, so I suppose it's really down to the O/P to stipulate this so we could protect it from the pruning rules. Not sure yet how this can be done successfully other than make them a sticky, which I am opposed to. Like Anubis said, we could auto move them to a different hidden forum, after the 2 months of inactivity, that us mods can view, that gets pruned after 1 year, which should give more than enough time for someone to re-call their thread. A moderator will obviously have to move it back and make a post regarding the re-call, otherwise it'll be re-pruned if someone else doesn't post

Technical - Information here is viable to keep and shouldn't be pruned as the information posted is useful to the masses.

Entertainment & Sports - is only viable for current affairs and to me, after 2 months the information is no longer useful, so their pruning is worthwhile.

Gaming - Worth keeping, as many of us are gamers at heart, some more so than others.

So what do you guys suggest?

Agreed. OT-Technical and OT-Gaming are definitely worth keeping around even if they're moved to an archive instead of being pruned after the specified time.

I would change technical to the same area like games, not pruned. There is always information there that can be relevant. Good thing I did not start my xbox softmoding topic there, as it would be gone by now, and information there is still relevant.

I just fail to see point in 2 months prune of other topics. IMHO keeping them for year or even longer will not hurt anyone, nor cost more...
