Hey everyone! BYC continues to grow like crazy and we're so very thankful to see so many new friends joining our community every day! We're expecting this next Spring to be a super huge record breaker! We've also got a lot of great discussions going on. In fact, we're close to reaching an amazing milestone: 5 MILLION POSTS on BYC! BYC has proven to be a fantastic place to learn, but also to enjoy chatting with friends. We've found that many of these social posts, while really fun, are also rarely referenced. They end up hanging around on the server, our daily backups, etc. for years. For this reason we're doing a bit of Spring.... er... Winter cleaning and organization. Part of this organization will be removing some of the really big game threads and off topic, chat-like threads. NOTE: We usually don't remove threads where there is information that is often referenced and that people enjoy going back to read. A great example is the super huge longnormous thread: Okies in the BYC . A good example of threads that will be removed would be the "Count before the staff post" or "word game" threads. As we do the cleanup you may see your post counts drop, especially if you participated in those thread a lot. We'll probably be doing this from time to time to keep the forum super fast and streamlined. Thanks everyone for making BYC the best forum in the world!
