Outdated Information in Forum Posts

    Occasionally I will start reading a forum post that has confusing information in it. Because I have been here for several months now, sometimes I can recognize when the information is out-dated. However, I often get quite a ways through the thread before I look back and realize that someone has commented on and therefore refreshed a discussion post from 2, 3, or even 4+ years ago. It makes it quite confusing. Is there a way to delete forum info after a certain time period?

      Our general policy is not to delete forum posts in general unless the content violates the terms of use of the site.

      There is a warning in place that explains that a forum thread is very old before one posts to it.

      We also generally advise not to post to a forum thread that has not had activity for some time.

      Every forum post has a time a time indicator, so you can use that to determine if the information is timely.
