How do y'all decide what threads to delete or when? 'Cause there a few where people haven't responded. There's not much use for inactive threads, is there? If we never delete, they're just gonna keep piling up.

Its generally just redundant threads that get deleted. The rest will just stay and be archived. If nobody responds they'll sink to the bottom of the boards, but still show up in searches if someone is looking for something in particular. I have no issue with them 'piling up' as you put it, as its not as if they're gonna be in the way.

There are a few things I look at.

If it completely and utterly useless, I send it to the abyss.

If it's a double, I merge the topics.

In the news section I have deleted old news stuff that is done and over with ex: Tour dates or date specific shows/news.

If there are too many topics, does it make pages (1 2 3 4...)? Like in Facebook? Don't know if it happens to anyone else but my screen starts to lag when I go in a discussion board with too many topics. Not that big of a problem though.

The additional memory for all the topics should be tiny, and the cap is at 50 topics. I think this can be lowered if it ever becomes an issue.
