Why?.... What's up?

It 'was' set up that the board would remove topics that have not been posted to in 7 days.... so if you didn't post in a week it would be deleted.

I just changed it.

Is it space that is a problem?  I like the way yojoe does it, you have a long history of topics to refer back to .

Plus I guess if the topics get deleted every week if not replied to, it looks like nothing is going on on this board.

Space isn't a problem - that much.
I have 350 Megs of webspace for my site..... I think I'm using about 120 of it.

I'm going to let the posts go as long as they can for now - to let the board seem 'fuller'.... later on however I may change some sections to be a week.
