2023-10-16 Forum Cleanup

Hey Hopscotchers,

In the next few days, we will be cleaning up and removing the older inactive content in Hopscotch forum. If you receive notifications, this is nothing to be alarmed.

Thanks!

Can I know what counts as ‘older inactive content’?
Interesting!

We will start with things more than 1 year old, but we might clean up more. We have a lot of random topics sitting around!

This sounds awesome! Also, the forum probably needs it

Are we allowed to be alarmed by the notifications unnecessarily? I quite enjoy panicking, even if it isn’t absolutely needed.

You could start with the announcements section! XD

:nerd_face:Technically, this says that they will be cleaning up Hopscotch, whereas the title says that the forum is getting cleaned up, and those are opposite things, so which is it?:nerd_face:

Hehe thanks for the edit

Update: Forum cleanup is finished. You can now view the Deprecated category again (though there’s nothing left there). The category will continue to serve as a place for any archived or old topics on the forum.

if you need to save some more storage, it looks like deleted posts (i.e from the delete post button on the forum) are still stored, even in the deprecated category.

You mean you can see what’s being deleted, or just the count of how many posts from you were deleted?

If I download a user archive i can see deleted posts in deprecated, but only ones that had already been “deleted” pre-cleanup, the ones that were previously accesible are completely gone

Okay. I’m not super concerned. We were able to free up a lot of storage from the cleanup so this should be fine for now. But I will keep an eye out if we need more storage in the future.

Will the older post’s be archived?
