Post amount limit (Auto delete old post, when inserting new post.)

Post by Rammstein on January 3rd 2009, 7:14 pm

In some topics I need, to delete old posts every time. It will be very useful, to make option, to automatically "clean" several topics. Starting from several number of the post, with every new 1 post, 1 old post where be deleted.

To me this sound's like Auto-pruning

Admin Panel>>General>>Categories and forums>>Click the forum you want to do this in>>Then look for Auto-Pruning and set it on what you want.

Yes, I know about pruning, but I want pruning not for forums but for topics.
Pruning delets unansweded topics, but not posts.

It would be nice but I don't see the use for it.

In my forum I have some topics like "What song are you listening now". This function can be useful in leisure topics, like this.

I see no point in this,a mod can just send a topic to the garbage instead of doing this.I voted no because I like to see my postcount.
