What do people say? You've said exactly what I was wondering. I might be new to this site but man, data this huge shouldn't be wasted.

It's a shame in the age of big data that online history might be deleted, but I understand the performance and business needs to do this. But if some kind of text archive could be exported and hosted, then at least the data would be retained and be searchable just in case, rather than have a bunch of text gone forever.

Admittedly, how much value is in those posts is probably questionable, but even so...

Or is it all just a big conspiracy to stop me reaching my 10K post count..? (Again!) :lol:

We have had to put this intended prune on the back-burner -- too many higher priorities for the WebDev team to focus on -- and will probably re-visit ways to improve Forum page-load times in early 2021.
