Well. i would just say, the best person to vote on whether to delete old posts or not would be those who help others with their problems.Those people who spend loads of time and energy helping others.The helpers would be affected if their informational posts are deleted.
Also newbies would be deprived of valuable old posts with valuable info.

I would vote: NO,.....None of the posts should be deleted.There is no sense in deleting old posts.This is a help forum, and most posts contain valuable information that would be really helpful even after a year.

I have been moderating on BBS systems for many years now.Most tof them even have posts that are as old as 3 years!!!

In my view, fawad, it would be better to forget about this idea.
Please donot delete any posts, coz it will ruin the hard work of many people.
Find other ways to conserve webspace, but donot delete any posts.
B.T.W text based posts donot require mushc space or do they?

If this pruning policy is enforced, i may soon stop spending loads of time helping other people.

Waiting for a reply.

I Agree 99% with Faraz [ 1% represent your wow for not helping if such and such thing happens :) ] as he has valid point.

If cutting size of forum is an issue then I support removing posts after some time [ 60 days is very short for our size ] but to another forum, where we keep every thing on-line.

This will help majority as they do not consult older posts but will not deprive others of valuable resource. Once thread is in back-up forum then all should be locaked. The only issue [ may not be ] I can see is about the search. User should not be asked to search both separately, s/he should get results from all.
