A few discussions have me thinking lately. Maybe it is time to close down some sections of the site: The sketch card contest that has no post since 2011. Ask the manufacturer section that has had no post since 2012. Move the retailer Advertising forum into the Advertising section.
Close out the little used set building or merge it into the regular trade section. Also, at the end of each open that box session close it off and start a new one after a few month after it is over.
I think it would greatly improve the look of the site. Save a few dollars on bandwidth and maybe getting more eyes on the active sections.
Just a suggestion.

I only look at about half of the categories on this site, so I would have to agree with your suggestion. It's only logical.

That's was pretty much the same suggestion as in my Removing Old Threads post in this section. There's a lot of stale topics on Card Talk that are just hanging out way after anyone is posting or even reading.

I would just toss out any thread that hasn't had any added comments in a year's time. If anyone is interested in revisiting the subject later, they could just start a new thread. The only problem, beside investing the time to clean up the house, might be with the member post counts. If whole threads were deleted, would that also mean post numbers would be reduced for those members who left comments in the threads removed?

If so, no one would want that to happen.

Are post counts really that important? I think that the content of posts are far more important than quantity and in the end, it's just a number.

I wonder if it is possible to remove inactive members as well.

I think it would be harder to remove inactive members. I know of members who just don't post unless they have something to trade which is rare. They are active in they look at the site but don't log in.

It is a measure of your contribution to Card Talk, so I think some members would say its important, others might not care.

I know if you removed the post card of a certain cardtalker, it would likely shatter his entire self worth!

Personally,never even look at post count, just the content of the posts.
