Out Dated Threads
HSN, please do this customer a favor and DELETE ALL THREADS WHICH ARE AT LEAST ONE YEAR OLD. Having to sift through outdated threads is time consuming and annoying. I am loosing my interest in the Community threads and do not scan them as frequently due to all of the outdated threads. It used to be fun to read and respond to the threads, NOT SO ANYMORE!
It is very annoying to select a thread, only to find it is as least 1 year old. During customer appreciation days this month, I have selected the Code For The Day only to find it is from 2015. Countless times I have selected a thread to read and after having read several selections, found out the post was at least a year old, sometimes the thread is two years old or more.
Finally, I see no point in keeping threads on line which are two or three years old. Anyone posting to a thread so old will find the topic outdated, but only after wasting time reading and responding to the same.
I’m not exactly sure what the rankings mean anyway. I’ve been posting since ’97; however, my profile indicates otherwise. The way I see it, I should be the HSN Community Manager…JK!
Seriously, if we deleted old threads, how would it impact us? It wouldn’t. What I find annoying are the old resurrected threads bashing a host or a vendor.
It is annoying to see an ancient thread sometimes and by ancient I mean several years old. However, I find it more annoying to see two or three threads about the same topic on the Community page at the same time. Wouldn’t it be better to use an existing thread if available?
Wait a minute….Let’s think about this. First of all, wouldn’t we all lose smiles and rankings if entire threads were deleted?
Secondly, I completely disagree with the thought that old threads are invalid. If the threads address vendors, hosts, and products that still exist, then those threads are not invalid.
I agree, I would delete threads longer than a few months old.
