Trash Can Section

Postby Elevators » Fri Nov 18, 2005 4:20 pm

On the forum I run I have a locked topic called the "Trash / Grave":
Posting mishaps, TOS violations, repeat posts, debunked posts etc. (Items moved to the trash will automatically be deleted after 2 days of being in the trash)

I send post there that violate TOS etc. (ex. Posts like these). That way I don't have dead posts sitting around in the topics.
I also threw in that time limit on the trash so that the posts sent there are deleted after a while (2 days as it is, but obviously you could do it longer or shorter). This not only unclutters the topics but it also saves (albeit miniscule and of no real concequence) server space. Which is good for both hosting and SQL DB backup speeds.

Just a suggestion. Keep up the great work.

Thanks for the suggestion :)

We already do have such a section, but you guys don't see it (it's in our mod/admin area).

That post was locked initially however so that the poster can see the reason why, and repost properly if he/she wishes. It will eventually be put out with the trash.
