If it is in the best interest of keeping the board alive, then do it.

Many will complain, and I admit that losing posts and great information is far from ideal, but if we need to do it in order to avoid any future crash, then go for it.

Agree with Zeni, if it can't be done otherwise, then delete away :)
Thanks Richard

Delete all posts, users..anything.

However perhaps some of the more useful posts could be gathered and stored by somebody with too much freetime (don't look at me, sorry). I know the board can show topics..what 300 - 500 days back ? Then again are there any that important or classic threads to be salvaged out there...

If it's necessary, ok, do it.
Maybe you could save the data base and put it available for download somewhere.
So the new data base will be light and the board will work fine (or that's what we hope), but the information won't go totally lost, and if someone is interested in the old posts he can always download the old data base.
What do you think?

A good spring-clean is good for you. I have no complaints about wiping the board and starting again from fresh, and I certainly couldn't give two hoots about my post-count.

I agree, but we had better save some of the classic fattys and so on. It would be a shame to lose those, though most of everything else is disposable.

I can archive old posts if necessary... the database can't be that big anyway, there are probably not more 50000 posts each year.

I don't mind it either, Richard. Delete ahead :)

So will the board return with a new look and design or will it be the same old board?
