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?
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.

The count is off. I posted two separate posts to the same thread and the first one registered as my having made 330 posts, but so did the second one (which should have said 331 posts). As I said, it doesn't bother me in the slightest, just something I've noticed tonight. It's not...

On several occasions I have responded to a thread (usually those that have not been answered) and go back and check to see if there has been any follow up other than the reply I posted and the threads have disappeared.When I click on "Latest Activity" and then "yours" the posts...
