Just wondering - how and when do inactive users eventually get purged from forums?

    The Baron and I used to go at it all the time with huge threads. I can't find any of them and in fact I can't find my own older threads either. Most likely it was just a thread cleanup for performance, killing really old threads in certain categories. I doubt there was any kind of hit job.

    I'd like to see that taken a step further where all battle banners everywhere have an option to opt-into a regional conflict (somehow don't know). I set most of my banners out as deco, but now have a large enough network of lots to expand that globally. I know there's battle banners everywhere wanting battles. Britannia Manor's banners are still availible too.
    Maybe there's an idea that will come splashing up on the shoreline involving all our banners.

    I remember those discussions. I was not invested in any particular side of the arguments but I found them interesting.

    I am sorry to hear that you quit, one day I'd like you to hopefully come back and enjoy the game again. I'm sure Team SOTA will make a great game once it is all said and done.

    I didn't do big threads, but am from the halcyon era.

    I used to make maps, and post them. I intend to get back to doing that.
    My old posts still exist but unfortunately the links are dead as server hosts have expired.
    It's on my "to do" list, but real life priorities trump gaming.

    As for the forum, Discord came along and any forum needs moderation and staff.
    Discord is outsourcing in a way.
    This doesn't answer your question about historic posts, but I'm lurking!
