Our Go club has a private group that meets once a week for the members to play against each other. We use the group chat channel which is automatically assigned to groups to communicate and arrange games. This week I wanted to check something that had been posted in group chat at the very beginning of the meeting the day before. Unfortunately that posting was no longer available.
Upon making enquiries, I discovered that group chat postings only persist for 30 days or until there have been another 50 postings, whichever is first. I think that while the time limit is fine, the limit on number of postings that persist is a little tight and would suggest that it could usefully be increased to, say, about 100. I don’t know, but imagine this would be a trivial modification to code. I don’t know what knock-on effects it might have.
Does anyone have an opinion on this matter or know of a reason why it would not be a good idea to implement?
