Are threads/posts auto-pruned?

I was noticing that the thread/post counts on the index page are quite a bit higher than the actual forum sub-sections themselves. After a while, are our posts/threads auto-pruned? The reason why I ask is because sometimes I like to reference old threads for data, URL's, suggestions etc and I'll check my email subscriptions under the control panel. Are those going to vanish on me at some point, or am I missing something? Thanks as always!

In your user control panel there is a setting to select how long older threads remain visible in the forums. That only affects how many threads you'll see when you look at a forum, it doesn't actually delete them from the database, or remove them from your subscribed threads list. If something new gets posted in an older thread, it will reappear in the forum. If you click on your subscribed threads list, all your subscribed threads will be there.

Thank you for the excellent clarification. All is well. :)

Great!

(Also should add, if you do a forum search, you'll see threads on that topic running back to the early 2000s.)

Yep. By default it's 30 days if I remember correctly. I set mine to "from the beginning of time" or comparable.
