Forum Pruning System

Maybe pruning system should have an option to not delete but to move to a certian forum (like the forum trash).

What could also be nice is the option:

Prune only topics with no replies? Yes / No

It would be a great way to prune old topics that have been completely ignored, while still managing to save old topics that do have good info even though they have not been viewed or replied-to in the timeframe you are pruning.
Has an irascible disposition.

Or have an option to soft-delete pruned topics instead of hard-deleting them?
