Default Tidying up the Forum

The Lets Rock thread goes back years I only look at the last page. Any problems in deleting very old posts?

Oh right. So those of us that might want to visit the earlier posts wont be able to because you don't want to click on the "last post" link.

It is only a suggestion no need to criticise me.

Now the Forums are not hanging maybe no need to delete older posts.

I don't think it's a such a bad idea FratPark. Given that the problems may have been caused by the 'Click for...' thread which started in 2014, as did the 'Lets Rock' thread, perhaps it would be a good idea to shorten the thread at least. I don't believe that anyone is likely to wade through all 968 posts (at the time of writing) there! At least it might help to prevent the recent difficulties here from recurring at some point in the future.

If indeed the "Lets Rock" thread has had an impact on the Forum's working correctly due to its volume, then surely the person to decide is the Editor.

You could have an Annual "Let's Rock" thread, removing all of the previous years stuff leaving a clear sheet every year. If you have favourites you can put them up again and they will be there to enjoy again without having to search through 900 odd that exist at the moment.
