    Default Removal of past lotteries not working

    I distinctly recall Tolero posting a while back that winning lotteries would be removed from the notification column in myddo after a certain length of time had passed - I think it was 90 days.

    Well, it hasn't been working for a long time. I have lottery winnings still listed throughout most of last year, dating back as far as March 5th, 2012. It makes it more difficult to find any current winners listed, because for some reason any new winners get randomly inserted at some point in the list, instead of being put right at the top or right at the bottom.

    Any chance of getting the list cleared out again at least? I honestly don't care which of my characters won some rage pots last April. And since winnings only stay in the mailbox for 4 weeks I believe, it would honestly make more sense to have the notifications expire after 30 days instead of 90.

    Default you can try this

    Not really a fix for what your complaining about but better than waiting for a fix.
    You can try some 3rd party alternatives...

    Default

    As of this week, some intern could inject a function or script removing all winning entries prior to 2013 from the DB. Winner's prizes are mailed through the in-game mail system. This system has a default unopened mail deletion at the 3 week mark. Any Lottery wins prior to 2013 are now 22 days ago, more than 3 weeks.

    It won't stop continued pile-up of them again, but it would at least be a quality of life band aid for folks who like the lottery.

    To be honest I am too lazy to use any of the programs that would ease the pain. I like the lotteries and just want to have a quick view if any toon won something before I log on. so yes please delete everything 3 weeks or 90 days I don't care as long as it easier to have it checked
