Auto-deletion of rarely seen films?

Wondering how Criticker works, or have a question that doesn't seem to fit under requests or bugs?

Auto-deletion of rarely seen films?

Postby TonyS. » Sun Mar 19, 2017 4:29 pm

Are films automatically deleted from the database if too few people (nobody) rank(s) them?

I seem to recall films vanishing from the site and having to add them back.

Do you notify the site member who added such entries if this "pruning" procedure is effectively applied?

We don't get rid of films, in this way. I'd be pretty alarmed if films were disappearing... do you have a specific example of this happening?

I remember the following films being part of the database, then disappearing and having to submit them again:

Japan Organized Crime Boss
Sexy Line
Vendetta of a Samurai

Thanks for that extra information... we'll stay vigilant for this happening again.

@mpowell:
could you check your logs whether these 3 films have indeed been submitted AND accepted to the database twice (This would suggest, that the films really have been deleted) ...

... OR submitted twice, but accepted only once.
(This would suggest, that the films were not deleted from your database, but the first submission simply was not successful.)
