Welcome Ranchero50. :)

My thoughts on the classifieds is to make them self cleaning. Once the OP is of a certain age, just have it automatically self delete. Maybe the exception would be unless it has current response activity. Say, like 14 days or so. If the item has not sold and the seller wants to re-list it, that would work for me.

Thanks for letting me lose from the Mod position. It was fun while it lasted but I am just not into it any longer. Its time to get some new people a chance to help out at a higher level. This place still rocks and I will always be around.

I'm not sure we can do that with this software, IF we can I agree, and will go further and say that it would be great if ONLY the original poster could reply and if the time was 30 days.

I agree...Greg, your service to the forums over the years has been greatly appreciated! :thup: Thank you! I hope you'll continue to be a participating member.

The forum software can be set up to auto-purge a specific forum after a period of age and/or inactivity...and in fact that's how the Classifieds are set up now. If a thread is over 90 days old AND hasn't been viewed in the past 90 days, it will be automatically purged from the database. Of course, I can remove the 'viewing' part, so that all threads will simply have a 90-day life, after which they'll be removed.

:thup: This is Great! :clap:
:hmm: Just curious, on the 'viewing part'; is it just logged in members that count or anyone viewing the topic??? as if it is just anyone viewing it I wouldn't use that as the search bots and people doing web searches and such could/would keep it active... I think as long as people bump the topic to keep it active in the 90 days it is good or it is easy to just re-list it if'n it expires... :2cents:

Congrats Jamie. I agree with 1971ford on averagef250 for the 4x4 section. Dustin definitely knows his stuff.

We had some discussion on who the new moderator for the 4x4/Offroad forum should be, and and eventually offered the position to Doug Comer...and he's agreed to take over there. I've just completed getting him set up as such, and so he's the newest FORDification.com forum Mod. :thup:

Thanks for helping take this responsibility on, Doug! You're knowledge and experience made you a natural pick, and I'm sure the other members will agree. :D

We have another new Mod: :woohoo:

70_F100 (Richard) will be the new Mod for the Drivetrain section. With his qualifications and experience, I think he's the perfect candidate for this forum. :thup:

Thanks for stepping up to the plate here, Richard! Your assistance and expertise has been (and will be) greatly appreciated.
