Similarly, my "Thread That Killed the Website": Gordo's GTX may soon disappear from the site because it is now a closed thread that can't be posted into. Here is the link to the first post:
And here is the link to one of the last posts:
I don't know if just viewing them without posting in them will keep these threads alive. Please post in my DIY Dashboard thread and maybe throw some likes at posts in the Gordo's GTX thread to help keep these threads accessible on the site.
Agreed, it's not worth the trouble to delete them. The amount of storage this site takes is miniscule compared to other uses these days.Dont think they get deleted, only harder to find as they are buried.

When VerticalScope acquired OpelGT.com, and especially after they migrated the site to the current platform, a bunch of stuff changed. The instructions I provided related to the old Forum.Hey Keith just curious about, "This is an older thread, you may not receive a response, and could be reviving an old thread. Please consider creating a new thread." What is the purpose or reason for this why would older threads, which could still be of interest not receive a response. And why do some older threads have this disclaimer and some much older threads do not. Also in the above mentioned thread I could not follow the directions as listed as I could not find the series of actions as listed, that is:"
Navigate to "Forum Actions" (near the top, under the main menu bar), then "General Settings". Scroll down to "Thread Display Options", and see what "Default Thread Age Cut Off:" is set to. Click to open the options, select "show all threads". Could you review and tell me what I am doing incorrectly as again I cannot find the way to follow the directions listed above, beginning with finding Forum Actons and then general settings. Thanking you in advance for your help....Carl
Fixed it for you.When VerticalScope acquired OpelGT.com, and especially after they migrated the site to the current platform, a bunch of stuff changed. The instructions I provided related to the old Forum.
The warning about old threads actually popped up recently, apparently as part of an upgrade.
According to the rules of this site, It is always best to add to a thread than create a new one.
I have always thought that this should be the case. There is usually information contained in a thread that might be of interest, or provide context, or contain posts from members who no longer post, etc.It is always best to add to a thread than create a new one.
