Pruning of old news topics
« on: March 08, 2019, 11:07:36 AM »
One or two may have noticed, that the post count is being reduced. No, we don't go the other way, and reduce the number only instead of raising it by manipulating the post count shown; actually some pruning is done by deleting old and mainly unanswered topics which have been copied from news sites and pasted on the forum and negatively influenced the listing in SERPs (search engine result pages) as copied content. Some of relevance will be kept still. This huge amount of work serves the good of the forum. It's a part of S.E.O. and is already visible as increased number of daily unique visitors. Search engines aren't different than people: "Who wants to read yesterday's news?" :-[
