News Feeds

Post by Dracula »

Topics will be created here by the news feed bot and these stories can be discussed here. This forum will be pruned to keep the database manageable, but popular topics may be archived. If you have any questions, they may be asked in this topic. Topics will have the date and time of the feed fetch to ensure that older posts are the ones that get pruned.

A News Feed topic should last only 24 hours assuming no one replies to it here. Some have managed to last longer but that's because the autoprune in phpBB doesn't always work. In that case, I run it manually.

Edit: If a topic is replied to here, it will be pruned only after 24 hours have elapsed since the last reply was posted.
