Does that mean our post counts will all be reduced and we'll all lose our Jedi status and be busted back to the ranks?

Everything I’ve written on this forum is pure gold and should be preserved for the nation. :lol:
Does this technical change affect my chance of ever becoming a Jedi poster?

We're working on that... but it's easy to change the threshold for each status level in the back office to compensate... don't worry too much at this stage, please.

It would be possible to create a special MOF-Jedi status for you alone, for an attained count between 807 and 807 posts, then set up user-pruning only on your account so that it never goes up but you never lose MOF-Jedi status?

I’ve looked up my posting history and I see nothing before 2018, so I feel I’ve already had some of my forum history, and those valuable Jedi eligibility points, erased. :?:D

I recall the last Prunefest was late 2014 before we launched this new version of SOS Forum. :?

Thanks, Andy. I've just submitted another on folk recording techniques I've found. What I'm doing using the search function is reviewing my posts from 2008 - 2012 on the basis that I must have been interested in the threads to have posted in them. I've only found two so far but it's a fascinating process of revisiting my past life on the forum. Since all this stuff will be going it's quite salutary to look at how my attitudes have changed over the last 12 years.

Cheers,
