News Feed Bot

Post by [Dimetrodon] »

@Broadcastre

I understand why you deleted the news feed bot, but I think it would be a good idea to reenable it and just setting up the proper forum to be autopruned. Autopruning topics that are older than 3-7 days should keep the database size in check while maintaining it's functionality. I doubt anyone would look at old newsfeed topics anyway.

I re-enabled it as a test. Pruning is active, topics get pruned after one day. That should keep it from clogging up the database. If you don't like what I did, I'll delete it again.

Reason: Reduced pruning to one day. Added more information.

Just for the record, this has been disabled again, except the youtube feed. No one used it, and it just took up space.
