Just a 'lil question regarding post count (not that I post randomly to increase count) but I notice yesterday I was about to crack 3000 posts but today I am back at approx 2100 posts.  Is the forum regularly pruned to keep its size under control?

Re: Forum Posts

No. The only case where posts get deleted are spam posts, or when a user explicitly requests deletion (single post or all posts, which is their right under GDPR).

If your real post count went down from 3000 by 900 (!) overnight to 2100 then that would be a serious bug. However, from a cursory look, your posts still go back till 2015 and I'd be surprised if any posts actually disappeared instead of the post count being wrong (for whatever reason).

I'll check the database and the couple of database snapshots we have from the past days and see if there was such a change in the posts table, but I don't think that's the case. Are you sure you're not remembering your postcount from a different forum?

Re: Forum Posts

I'm not particularly worried about the post count in general, it was just a query reall.  Maybe I am having a blonde moment?

Doesn't really matter.  Probably best to delete this thread really.

Re: Forum Posts

Leave it in case it really is an issue or in case it becomes an issue in the future. It wrong hurt having the thread exist.
