I must be desperate
« on: Jun 29, 2020, 08:23:02 AM »
Idle curiosity - I'm good at that - led me to look at the amount of posting I have done since lockdown started. A tad over 60 a day! There must be more to life- if only I could find it!

The word games can boost counts. It was last night or the night before when we two and possibly A. N. Other were going hell for leather on those.

I see one of the word games is now on its 3399th page, now THAT'S desperation. I was thinking about not posting anymore because I don't like the word games they irritate me, couldn't they be moved somewhere else on the forum so I only see them if I want to ?. ;D ;D ;D  I'm joking / teasing.

I wonder why the word games aren't cleared if there are so many pages  ? Cleared ready to start again I mean, all those pages must take up space on the forum.

If that is the case, it seems a reasonable idea - although I haven't notice this forum being any slower than any of the others I visit, so presumably it can cope

It's just a bit of storage space in a database. As the word game entries are so small it isn't even a lot of space.

If you just hit the quote button and look at the bit in the url after the ? you will see that there are around 25,000 topics and half a million posts already stored in the database. The admin panel will have some facility to clear old stuff out should it become necessary but in the big scheme of things PF is small beer.

Pruning the old stuff would have saved me making an arse of myself the other day....


There are many forums that lock stuff which has  had no replies for a few months. That would be a good idea as reopening old threads is one thing some spambots do.

I've been here 10 years, and I thought I posted quite a lot, but yours must be a record for three years Mike!
