As with all websites, occasionally the ORC Website may need to be shut down for maintenance such as patching or updating. However, there's a few other things that go on too.
- The entire site is backed up weekly on a semi-regular basis.
- Personal Messages (PMs) are deleted after 90 days - messages in the archive are unaffected.
- Wiki changes have a 30 day lifetime - i.e. you can only see the last 30 days of changes made to a page or the wiki. This helps keep the back-end database manageable.
- Usernames that haven't logged in for over two years will be deleted - it won't stop someone registering again though.
- The Introductions area of the Forum will be purged of messages over a year old.
- The Games/Players Wanted area of the Forum will be purged of messages over two years old - this means that there won't be quite so much clutter and keeps things relatively current!
- The Trades/Sales/Wants area of the Forum will be purged of messages over a year old.
