Should there be an age limit for nzb when posted setup...
Ya, Don't really see the point in posting stuff over 15 days...
I picked less than 10 days, because my ISP (Verizon) only carries binaries for a week. Other than that, newsgroups for my ISP are great.

im sure u get stuff off binsearch thats older than 15days.
i posted some 40 day old or something house episodes of season 2 and 3 people got them.. so its worth it
I want 70. Same as Giganews. I want to grab stuff when I want it and not everyone else.
It's also nice to be able to post stuff even though it may be 20 days old posts and it haven't been posted here.
I only have 7 day retention so anything above that i cant grab.
I voted 40 days but would have chosen longer if it was available.
With premium services extending their retention to anything up to 70 days I think FST would be less useful for people using those services if NZBs were deleted sooner than 40 days.
A limit must be imposed while there is still a limit to server retention. Apart from being pointless, it unnecessarily increases the FST db size IMO.
It would be nice if threads could be auto-locked or NZB links automatically removed when NZBs are deleted from the db. This would at least prevent n00b bumping of age-old threads.
What reality meant was that they can't be posted if they're over X days old.
We're keeping the date we have set for when they're deleted from the database...
I'd like to register a vote for 30 days then. There's still plenty of time for premium service subscribers to grab the post.
