Just raising a query with HQ. In the other place threads tend to get deleted when they get to about 1,000 posts. Will that happen with our quiet corner thread I wonder?
I hope we can just keep going with it however 'long' it gets. It's not a single subject thread that will eventually fizzle of its own accord and lots of people, especially newcomers, like to browse back through the range of posts.
So can we keep it as it is please? If long threads pose technical issues, just put another shilling in the meter! smile

Oh No!
It's happened.
GN computer programmers/IT manager - is there an answer?

We'll ask Tech to extend the length of that thread (put another shilling in the meter!), as you're right, the normal limit is 1000 posts.
