Since we have a few people reviving more-than-a-year-old threads lately, I propose that threads started earlier than January 1, 2005 be moved to the General Archives.

Pros? Cons?

pro: will probably load pages a bit quicker if not so many thread titles need to be opened (dont know if this would really be all the much faster or not)

I had actually been meaning to suggest this to DH a while back.

I'd say archive everything older than 6 months.

If people keep bringing up old threads more and more, when are the archives going to be updated?
