In case you have been looking for an old post, or your search results returned something different than you were expecting, we recently kicked off a community clean up project! We have millions of posts out here, so we want to try and keep it clean so you can easily find what you are looking for. Over the next few weeks you will begin to notice many of the older posts being archived to the Public Archives space. Once there we will begin to review the top viewed posts and determine if they are still relevant. We still have some posts from 2008, so we know there is a lot of things we need to review, and we will determine what needs to happen with each, and whatCommunity Cleaning Lady
