I am kinda new to 6GC, but I would certainly be sad to see it go. I caught the Celi bug late, but I am definitely ... infected? ;-)

I was just thinking, what if all the problems with the forum are from the bandwith usage? Nearly 20 years of threads is a lot of information... Maybe it's time to do like other forums and clean house and archive threads with useful information and delete the rest? Like could probably save a good bit just by deleting all the old marketplace threads that're more than 30 days without a response, and that'd be easy and immediate since nothing to sift through really.

Older marketplace threads are an excellent source to determine value of parts, especially nowadays that sales are less frequent. The problem with deleting threads is that it's hard to tell what is useful and what is not, not to mention that it would be a very time consuming task.

Sorta kinda not really, what people are willing to pay now is the value and not what people were paying 5-10+ years ago. Besides it's not like one new single thread couldn't be compiled with all the past sales info anyway if someone were so inclined. It's dead weight and if it could help with saving the entire forum from being tanked it's a good starting point. As would clearing out off topic, website discussion, and general discussion, and I wouldn't be averted to binning the Today I threads and starting those over either as a means of quick bandwith release. Usually with admin control you can delete multiple threads at once, so I don't think it'd be all that time consuming.
