Seems to vary from forum to forum.

I suspect that when zappp prunes them, he removes a certain percentage from each frum rather than ones of a certain age.

the archives is for threads that need to be on the forum, if you get what i mean

The admins usually prune every few months. how many are deleted depends on the forum. for example, the last post in the pit was on

10 days actually.

Look at the bottom of a forum, there's an option to show threads "from the last 10 days" or "from the last year" or whatever.

In the Pit this is set to 10 days automatically, everywhere else it's 30.

But if you set it to "the beginning" the oldest Pit thread is from 5th March, whilst some of the other forums go as far back as February 05
