this one goes to John mainly: I've noticed that whenever you open the index page of a subforum you are always presented with a list of all threads in that subforum back to August 2002. This means, for example, when I enter "General Discussion and News", my browser tells me that it has to download 230k of data just to be able to display the list.
Wouldn'<font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font><font color="ff0000"></font> be a way to decrease traffic dramatically to set the forum software to split the list to several pages so that only the, let's say, 25 most recent threads are listed on the first page? I guess that this would decrease traffic as well as waiting delays for modem/ISDN users.
Maybe this setup is not possible with this forum software, but I can hardly imagine that since virtually any other forum I use is set up that way.
PS: The profanity bulleted above is not really a profanity... I simply can't convince the server that a "t" and an "it" don't always have to combine to something that means "female breast".

This software is indeed capable of doing what you ask and I think that would be wonderful - it's called auto-archiving. Unfortunately, it costs $150 to enable that feature along with the rest of the pro features that it has (such as auto user creation and a lot of other things). I'm trying not to manually prune the board because I'm hoping we get enough money from the next few donations to pay for the pro software. We're actually almost there believe it or not. The last donation was large enough on its own to pay for the upgrade but part of it had to go to other costs first so we still need about US $70.
Thanks for the input.
