I have had a quick look (And tried to help some) - most of these posts are over 2 months old with no replies..... are you able to automatically delete them after a certain time and post a PM to the originator so they know their post is deleted???

This way they can either repost the question to make it current again or re-word it some how to appeal to more people?

Keep on RAVin.....

Thanks for stepping up AussieRAVer 8) Yes... we do have the option of automaticly deleting (pruning) messages that have 0 replies... after a set number of days. I've been reluctant to implement this feature... as it does NOT notify the message originator of the impending deletion. I guess if it was implemented... it wouldn't take long for our members to become aware of this feature. Plus... I could add mention of it on our FAQ page.

Thanks for the input 8)

I think the issue with answering a really old post is that aside from bringing up a really old post, i think the originator may not be checking for answers anymore if it is so old, so the option of notifying the originator about the deletion would encourage him/her to forget about it or repost it again and check back. I agree completely with AussieRaver

Yes... that would be a GREAT way to handle it. But... with over 600 unanswered messages... sending each member a message BEFORE deleting the message... keeping track of replies... and to which message the reply is concerning... would be a lot of work If we had an AUTOMATED system to do this, it would be feasable. I've searched most of the PHPBB sites for this type of MOD... with no luck

As I dont know the coding for PHPBB, is it possible to modify the code to send a personal message then delete it???

If you are able to delete these posts are you able to automatically send personal messages to posts with 0 replys after a set number of days??

If so, you could send the message, asking the user to either delete it or repost and then set the delete code in action a week later??

Keep on RAVin.....

Looks interesting 8) I like to try to use only the phpbb.com site for mods (but NOT always ). I found the same mod here http://www.phpbb.com/phpBB/viewtopic.php?t=79099 Looks like it might have some ISSUES... but when I get a chance I'll sort through the 20+ pages of messages and maybe give it a test run.

Thanks
