    does the wiping delete previous stuff -- posts, threads, # of posts/likes, et al?

    yes
    that way each season users stats are rebalanced
    and every new user has an opportunity to gain on the old users in terms of internet prestige lol

    I don't like that idea. I like having old posts and history around. And were just asking for a catastrophic crash I'd we go messing with databases all the time.

    yeah, i don't like it either
    what's the purpose of accumulating posts/threads/likes if there's no payoff?
    hey... how about giving some sort of reward/recognition for posts/likes et al?
    and before you think it's self-serving since i have the most posts, make the staff ineligible

    should we hand out gold stars on their foreheads too?
    lol im being kind of a jerk but seriously, all these things are a little superfluous
    and since you called me a hipster the hipster way of doing it would be to not care about the history and 'payoff'
    instead care about the fresh stuff happening right about now by the people making it happen right about now
    accumulation is for pack rat hoarders anyway so lets go lean and lose some lbs.

    truth = hardly anyone to nobody is ever gonna read anything not current, specially on a forum and specially on a sports news site
    truth = old content only valuable if its quality reading and we have mostly game threads and yackety yack
    truth = old content is only kept because of its ability to get page views and generate income.
    truth = we dont use ads
    truth = we can save all old threads by season and put them on a new site that is read only and is a repository for all our old threads
    truth = we can pimp out that site with google ads and links to the live version of DSP.
    truth = didnt we come up with an alternate domain name a few months ago, something like DSPnetwork.com or something?

    It would've been nice to see old posts from when the site first started but all of those memories are gone... Courtesy to Scratch, cock sucking generator

    I don't remember it being Scratch's fault.

    I think scratch killed one database, i killed another, hammer probably got one under his belt too... we all killed em once in a while.
    People dont regularly know this... but i keep a lot of the old databases.
    Even have the old PSD database in one of the old computers.
