Fixed "Unviewed alerts do not expire."

    The sentence "Unviewed alerts do not expire" is found on this page: /admin.php?options/list/alerts

    Unfortunately, alerts do in fact expire and disappear after a period of time.

    Is this a bug in XenForo?

    No, that as it turns out is intentional, otherwise you could have alerts stored from years ago of users that never visited again.

    The bug would be that page saying that, so I'm moving this to bugs.

    True, but they don't take up that much space, generally. It'd be nice to be able to control it with a setting (0 = forever).

    My larger site is brushing up on 1 million rows in the alerts table, even with expiry. I shudder to think how many alerts the system generates and expires out.

    I've adjusted the phrasing here. To be clear, unviewed alerts expire 30 days after they happened.
