System resources

With resources on the server seemingly at a premium (given as now, social threads are being deleted ALONG with word games etc), I noticed that the general forum still had 364 pages of threads. I wondered how long these went back, to see if an alternative to deleting social threads, would be to just have a 'graveyard' of a shorter period.

As I started looking at the last pages, I noticed that at least 64 or the 364 pages were blank (bar the announcements at the top of each page).

Why is this? Is this playing a part on the strain on the server? Does this mean that the server still thinks those threads are still there?
