Disclaimer:
When commenting in this topic for the first time, you should include a quick vote as the very first character of your post - that makes it easy for me to figure out the overall enthusiasm for this particular idea.
1: Do Not Want - I hate this idea and would block it/leave the site if you added it
2: Do Not Care - I have no love for this idea, but no real hate either
3: Kind Of Want - This might be a good idea, but there are other things to do first
4: Do Want - I like this idea, and think you should work on it
5: Do Want Now - I love this idea, and think you should do it as soon as possible

Description:
Users can turn on or off the display of Archived topics, removing them from sight completely both on the topic list and on the number of topics/messages on the board list.

Rationale:
Posts from over a year ago could no longer be valid, boards appear to have significantly more activity than they actually do.

Downside:
Could lead to repeated repetition of older topics, could hide useful content.

Do Want.

And hopefully it'll fix the topics and messages count on the board list as well when you toggle off.
