ODAM Pruning

Salvation122Salvation122 Registered User regular
So, uh, ODAM doesn't have any threads in it that haven't been posted to in a week.

This seems rather out of the ordinary, and is kinda irritating in that I was trying to look up something in a Shadowrun thread that evidently no longer exists.

Is the one-week prune intentional? If so, would it be possible to extend it to at least a month?

    To be slightly more helpful: You need to scroll to the bottom of the list of threads, and select to display From The "Beginning" instead of "Last 2 Weeks".

    To be really REALLY helpful, since that doesn't last beyond you leaving the subforum, you'll want to go into your options and fix whatever you set.

    Regardless, you'd think that either every forum expiring threads after a week or it resetting after leaving the subforum and coming back would give a hint.

    It's actually because the forum default for ODAM is set to 2 weeks, while others are set longer (G&T is a month). You don't need to screw around with your options to have this issue.

    Edit: To clarify, Aroduc's solution will do the trick. ODAM's default (and thus the user's default) is set pretty low, though.

    The default selection for that option you highlighted is "Use the forum default" (At least, it was for me). ODAM's forum default is 2 weeks.

    For me, ODAM's default is from the beginning...

    So...

    Uh...

    ODAM's a witch!

    I see it as being for the last two weeks as well. Perhaps you changed your options to override the forum defaults?

    Weird, I'm fairly certain I never changed it and it's from the beginning for me as well.

    It's all the Dungeons and Dragon's, turning our little forum into a witch!
