Hey Folks, thanks for yesterdays responses. I’ve been looking at other tools including; Slack, Discord, Gitter, tlk.io, and a number of others, all of which have sticking points. I understand you have a $100 install option with ongoing server charges of like $10 a months, which seems a reasonable cost for someone that wants to run a community.
So… Can Discourse be set to delete all entries within a set time period, like 24 hours or 1 week?
It might sound strange, but I’m thinking of using Discourse as a chat like replacement. I feel that chatting online should be more like chatting in real life, in that, in real life, you don’t have the ability to scroll back into logs. Chat is a more real time ethereal experience. Hence, I have a great desire to find a way to not build up a giant database of past material, but would like to set things the delete on an automatically, rolling basis per some time period that I will experiment with between 24 hours and 8 days.
Can Discourse do this?
