Datbase Trim

Just a little off the sides please.

This weekend should be a good time to do this.  Saturday night?

As for the Last Post Wins Thread, I don't care what you do as long as you do it behind closed doors :)

I was able to reduce the posts from over 690,000 to just over 179,000 by deleting all threads that have had no activity for over 180 days excluding only the photo lessons.

A complete backup was done prior to the trim so nothing is actually gone forever.

Shit. Shitshitshitshitshit.

I wish I'd seen this earlier.

I would have requested that you not trim the food forum. I know a lot of people use that as a reference -- nobody might have posted in a recipe thread for 180 days, but it still might get searched for. I look up recipes others have posted in the past all the time.

Shit.

Is there any way you could restore the food forum posts?
