[Q]Do dispatches expire?

Postby Cavirfi » Wed Apr 14, 2021 7:46 pm

Self-explanatory title.

Will there be an amount of time where a dispatch has been there for so long that it becomes a waste of disk space and must therefore be removed?

I think we need a Archive Feature for NationStates, just like Using an Cloud for your Computer Files.

We already have that for forums, for dispatches, however. I am not sure.

Idk if Archiving Forum Topics are Increasing the Memory rather than using the Cloud Technology that Google and even Nintendo (if you have a Nintendo Switch and you have the Online Membership) Used for Files and even Backing Up Game Data. However, I think that was Expensive to do so, because I think Cloud Servers costs more than a Typical Server that NS Use.

Our content is backed up regularly. Don't concern yourselves with the method or costs. That's admin's problem, and they've been handling it quite well since 2002.

Wow, I am never born in the Early 2000s. I've never heard that NationStates was Founded in Early 2000s and I was Probably born at Mid-2000s, Somehow in 2006. However heard that Site before until 2018 when I joined there.
