OFL created the topic: I need to delete two ongoing threads

Hi guys, & gals

I hope you don't mind, but I need two delete to ongoing threads that have gotten extremely large. They are the Word Association and the goodnight (wherever it is called) threads. I am carrying out some work on the database and need to export it for testing purposes. There are several thousand posts and they carry quite a lot of weight, so to make my life easier, I need to remove them. However, I don't think it's going to make any difference to your enjoyment, it's not as if it's important information that needs to stay on the website. Please start it again. However, I might have to remove it intermittently but I will give you prior warning.

Thanks

Penn

Paul is quite correct, you have the choice to subscribe to a thread if you wish.it's quite easy to unsubscribe to a thread, just look at the bottom of the post and you'll see a menu item with something like "unsubscribe"

Personally I never subscribe to threads unless I am eagerly awaiting a reply.

Thanks for the warning Boss :)
I subscribe to almost all threads, I live in terror of missing something :)

If you can't beat them...arrange to have them beaten!
