i'd like to think that over the last few years we have shared a fair bit of info only to be scrubbed :evil: if i choose to edit my own posts thats my decision,if there is a reasonable reason then fine or more money was needed to run things?!! but i'm not posting if things are just to be scrubbed.. answers on a post card please :|

On a more sensible note, I agree with the post above, there may be some useful information missing from this forum, I for one have found it very useful. But the top post says reasons unknown. It would be a great shame to lose more posts unless the reasons behind this is found.

I'm not sure how the pruning works, but house-keeping could do with being more selective.
I didnt realise that topics were missing until i wanted to look up one of my own threads.

I'd prefer to see lurkers/1 posters scrubbed otherwise the forum content will get diluted, rather than being a good knowledge base.

We kept going over the hosting limit....

The site was starting to cost alot every month!

It had to be pruned, but not sure why you have lost post counts?

SORRY GUYS, but unless someone wants to pay £3000 for a dedicated server, whilst we are on a shared server it has to be kept low.

Ill try and make sure it doesnt get cut back this much again!

If you keep posting everything three times there is no wonder we keep going over the limit! :lol:
