Instant message clean up
« on: July 06, 2006, 12:28:53 PM »
Folks, it looks like we need to do some instant message box clean up. I'm going to give everyone a day or two to save any info they need from thier instant messages, and delete on thier own, then I am going to purge the database of ALL instant messages on Friday evening.  The count on instant messages in Mysql database including outbox is currently at over 215,000 stored messages. :o   I didnt set a limit on messages before, but I may have to in the future. I'll let you know if we do that.  :)

Hey Jeff

Is it possible to do a purge by date?
Delete all messages more than 6 months old?
That would take out 2/3 of the clutter and could just be a regular monthly thing to keep it under control.

Cheers

Just cleaned the 'inbox', and was surprised at the number of 'outbox' messages that I had sittin' there.  Cleaned those out too, after re-reading them.
Had some good chats going on the side. Hope to have more.

Highlight, copy and paste into your notepad on your puter.
Save it to your hard drive.

Can copy everything like avatars and such (like I did this time) or edit it down as you do it.

THats why I didnt just go ahead and clean house. I know there is information we as individuals dont want to lose, but when stored instant messages start taking up as much room as some of our more popular boards, its time to do something.

On behalf of Buzzsawyer can you please hold off dumping his until he has a chance to go through it.  He is living at the Hospital with his son 24-7
