Just curious (Johan/Granite), what makes you archive a post? Some interesting discussions that I would have liked to join/keep up have been archived. If anyone on the boards knows (or has a guess), that would be good too.

I don't think it's because of how long it has been since the post was replied to, because in some heated discussions I was in, namely the one I started entitled "This ends the NW DC-9 posts", but also a recent one in the non-aviation post and the "Straight Members of Airliners.net" post were all archived very quickly...I wanted to reply to a few of these and was rather disappointed at the archivation of them.

YES! This sooooo true! Look under "Big lips Sexy" that was started like three days ago, and guess what? It is archived already! That toally pisses me off! What is wrong with that topic? The last person replied like six hours ago! I think there is somthing fishy going on!! But there were only 8 replies to my post, what is up? Then I posted a topic asking "Whats up with that?" and it was deleted! Give me a break!

I archive posts that:
1. Are turning ugly and forcing me to do a lot of deletions.
2. Really should have been deleted at an early stage but I missed because I wasn't around.
Derek, there are plenty other forums you can visit on the web if you're interested in discussing big sexy lips. This non-aviation forum was primary intended for comments/suggestions regarding the site, questions like "where did you get your username" and other harmless stuff that used to plague the Civil aviation discussion. I have no intention of making this a place where teens can voice their sexual preferences. To tell you the truth, I'm not that found of the political and religious threads either.
Working on the site from morning 'till night that's livin' alright (1997-2007)

I'm with Johan on this one. It is an aviation-site, after all. Even the "Non-Aviation" Forum could do with a bit of a link with the rest of the site.
At certain points in the past, I've also spoken up in a few of those very "non-aviation" threads, just to make clear the aviation industry mainly consists of people with a broad view and open mind. To those who have been around for a while, it is needless to say those threads have lead to next to nothing. (Apart from a self-supported discussion group that has been started elsewhere, which probably is a good thing.)
Well, it was clear from day one that this forum would be a tricky one. Time has proven that one right. If things go on like this, one can only wonder how much longer the Non-Aviation Forum will be around...

I am talking about aviation threads in particular.
Is there a time limitation on their life line. It's not a problem for me. But some complain when there are duplicate threads. Some of the topics I would like to join are archived. So, do I start a thread again and risk the wrath of the board?
