Do to the large size of the database, it has been decided to prune the posts from the database. What that means is the all posts from 2005 and 2006 will be deleted, this will bring the forum database down to a managable size. As most know, we do strive to keep as much of the history of TU as we can and I have come up with solution so we don't lose any of our past.

I have created a read-only version of the Trekunited forum that anyone can visit. You can see all the posts from when I first built the forum in February of 2005 to March of 2010. This forum will be read-only, there are no options to post anything, it is meant as a reference only. There will be links placed on the this forum to get there. Here is the TU Archive forum:


..and while I was at it, I brought back the Save Enterprise Read-Only Forum and fixed it up a bit. It contains all the Saveenterprise.com posts from March 2004 to September 2006. Again this forum is also read-only, nothing can be posted there.


So, we can now keep this current Tu forum at a manageble size level without losing any of it's past. Pruning will begin this week, afterwards the forum will be brought to the current software level 3.1.4. In January work on a new main TU website will start. More on that later...
