Don't..

Your questions and their answers may well help someone else who searches the forum.

No I meant this one. I tried to take it down like you asked, but I couldn't figure out how. I wouldn't take down threads I figure people might still read.

You can't delete an entire thread or its initial post. What you can do is request a moderator to do it for you by clicking the http://forums.parallax.com/images/buttons/report-40b.png button below the initial post.

While I think that most of the threads should stay there are definitely threads on the forum that should go. The classified section is a good example. For items that are sold or no longer available the threads should be removed unless there is specifically some posts that make them worth keeping. At the very least any that mention sold or gone should be moved to the bottom so that only items that are currently available are shown near the top.

That happens by natural attrition, unless someone responds to the thread. In that case, it becomes topical again and shouldn't be messed with.

I tend to think of them as zombie threads...

I think some of them really are after our brains, too, if they get resurrected! :)

You can't delete this thread. It will grow and grow and become the longest thread anyone has ever seen on the forum... <insert maniacal laughter>.
