Why is the forum cleared like every few weeks?

Have questions? Just saying hello? This is the place.
No explicit, hateful, or hurtful language. Nothing illegal.

Just wanted to know. My ideas disappear after a certain period of time. ;)

Hmm. I don't recall ever deleting any of your posts. Which ideas have disappeared?

I dunno, when I come back after a long time, the forum has been cleared of all posts. It might be to stop spam, thats what Im guessing. Its like when you use an eraser and rub it over a blackboard, you essentially wipe it away and if you want anything new you just write with the chalk. Thats how I imagine it.

There are 41,000 posts here going back to 2007. I've never cleared the forum in the way you described. Outside of very rare circumstances (well, besides spam) I almost never delete posts. Your post history shows almost 160 messages. Are you sure you're not thinking of some other forum?

I think moderators move them to other sectors. Like for example, the old ones get moved to some sort of area where you can see them in your profile.

I think I'll close this topic. I may reopen it anytime, as an edited topic.
