The "What am I buzzing about" Forum has over 11,600 "Topics" over 582 pages.
The large majority of which have no responses.
I noticed on one of them Mike asked what can be done with the Buzzing About Topics.
Remove any older than 6 months? They go back 4 years.
The "No Replies" still has over 100 pages. 2000 posts sitting there.
So there are 13,600 posts not relevant, taking up space.
I am suggesting the removal to speed the site up. It may also help reduce glitches.

There is a thread about it here in Buzz Announcements.

www.buzz50.com/forum/258-buzz50-announce...removals-in-progress

This is ongoing....I was removing threads earlier from that very section.

One thing i would suggest is members start to resize the images they post not just on the forum
but also in the Photo Gallery.
