There will be some slowness over the next two weeks while I perform maintenance on the database server. When I'm finished doing maintenance I plan to upgrade it.

I would prefer not to delete anything but it looks like it is now unavoidable.
I am considering implementing the following policy;
1. Archiving everything over 3 months old
2. Deleting everything over 1 year old
A forum with posts dating back two years would end up with the following;
Posts between 3 months old and a year old in the archive
No posts over a year old
Free forums with no posts in the last year would also be deleted.
