Pruning the forums

We are in no danger of running out of disk space on our server at this time, but if we keep on growing at the pace we are, we will hit our limits eventually. If we do reach our quota, then we have two choices. I will have to delete old posts in order to make room for the new ones, or pay for more server space. The costs of that space may be more than I can take on personally.

I would like to get your inputs on how much we should keep in our database. Anwser the poll to give me a general idea, and leave comments if you have something more you would like to say. Thank you all in advance for your participation in this poll.
