Deleting selfie threads

Hi all,

Just to let you know — I’m going to be deleting selfie threads that are posted before 2020 (to begin with), because of all the space they take up. Also good for privacy concerns, so that’s a nice bonus. If for some reason anyone has any issues with or questions about this, this is the place for it.

Your pal,
wr

PS: Please remember that all selfie threads should be posted in the sub-category Social > Selfies for privacy reasons :blush:

Also maybe worth pinning this?

This is a really good shout

I reckon coming up with a general set amount of time before deleting them would be a good idea, both as you say for storage and privacy reasons

also lol that I only half-read the title and came in here to post a selfie

Reckon all selfie threads should self destruct after a week

I’d be for this. Always weirds me out when I see the stats @sean posts about how many lurkers there are on here

Yeah I remember this being mentioned several times before so we will look into it. Can’t remember why we haven’t done this before tbh :woman_shrugging:t3::woman_shrugging:t3:

I assume when links are posted and it generates the previews that uses up space as well, reckon big threads like good/bad social media could go to, make them ephemeral monthly threads or something, threads that are more of a resources like the article shares should stay, as should what is on your walls

I very rarely post in the selfie thread for worries about privacy/ being identifiable to lurkers who I may turn out to know irl, or who are perhaps sinister in some way.

Would people security/safety concerns be lessened if the selfie threads were in the ‘lounge’ section maybe?
Dunno, just an idea.

We’ve made it so they don’t get included in the automatically generated newsletters (as long as we use the Social > Selfies category), that’s as far as it goes I think. We’ve had many discussions about this.

But anyway, this time it’s about the storage space so have also tweaked some settings and deleted a bunch of old selfie threads just now

And while I think it is v important to contribute to the continuance of dis think it also unfair to price out those who can’t afford it thru no fault of their own x
