I have several items below 100 hours (not contributing to a star) that will never be run again.

Can these be removed?

I can't see that this would accomplish much.

As I understand it, this project is recording run time hours for each person and all applications that each person runs, to gather various data sets such as memory usage and time taken. This helps people decide if they can run a certain projects applications or not (OS type and memory usage for the application).

If you start removing hours and applications from the records then the collected data, then how accurate are the records?

This project records all applications run by the contributing volunteers even if they are only a few hours, these hours contribute to your overall hour total which would be no longer be your Overall total if hours have been removed.

Plus the applications you have under 100 hours will not be the same for others who will have more than 100 hours for the same application. The project admin then has to remove applications on a per volunteer basis which will be very time consuming.

Conan, because some projects are dead and so the apps will never return. We have asked for a way for users to "hide" inactive or dead projects/apps in the past with no response. However, there is no need to keep the stats you describe for apps that will never return. If they do, those stats can be recollected with the new versions.

We need to be able to mark projects as Dead and the dead projects applications as deprecated.

There is no point displaying lots of deprecated apps with <100h.
Being able to hide/reveal them is an excellent idea.
