No messages were deleted, just moved to the archives. People can pick up the threads by reference. We've been doing it this way since the message board has been up, and the archiving process has to happen sometime -- middle of the month would make it more confusing, and take several hours more to accomplish. It's a royal pain in the butt -- we tried it once. FYI, archiving is not automatic with this software, it's done by hand. But if anyone is interested, we can go to something like Ultimate Bulletin Board or Discus -- where archiving isn't an issue, users get dedicated user names and many other features. We've been thinking about that.
: By archiving all August messages on Sept. 1, you deleted messages posted only days and hours before and interrupted active message threads.
: Why not wait until the middle of the next month to archive messages from the previous month? Two weeks is plenty of time to give people a chance to read and respond to message threads. Or archive messages from mid-month at the beginning of the next month.
