Again - Forum pruning!

Postby acemonvw » Fri Dec 02, 2016 4:46 pm

More forum pruning has led to the loss of all of our threads here (and everything else in "the rest of the world")! Hopefully Jörg can fix that. :(

You stick in the past ;-) Do you think, someone will still read that after such a long period of time? I am happy, that the footsteps of my digital existence will not remain forever.

This is the whole point of the forum! That's what separates us from Facebook.

I appreciate people's input sticking around. It's helpful. Isn't that what has made humanity move beyond hunter/gatherer in the first place (besides farming)? The ability to transfer knowledge, even old knowledge - to future generations?

The written word is powerful - and important. I don't think I'm being nostalgic by saying this!

:D

The problem is that a lot of information in this forum is obsolete already. Things are changing. A lot of bugs from the past are fixed. Some postings can confuse people who just have bought the Spectralis and are looking for infos. Some features are meanwhile implemented in a different way than they were in the past etc.
On the other hand is the size of the database. It's growing and growing. So the performance of the forum will decrease. Most people do not even search inside the forum for answers. I am sure, a lot of problems are already covered again and again.

But however - I can disable pruning, if that is really what you want. I remember I disabled that already in some sections a couple of years ago.

That was the only section where pruning was still active. ;-) It's now disabled.

Maybe someone should start a wiki? Doesn't have to be RT but that would make it more official.
That way only relevant data could be stored and kept for all time unless superseded.

Yeah, I understand that. I say do what makes sense for you guys, I'm just one person on the forum. I thought you just didn't know these sections were pruning - so I was letting you know.

By all means, prune away :)
