Is it possible to automatically delete services after a set period of time? Is the username of the publishing user and the date the service was published saved anywhere? We are trying to implement a system to check for services that have been on the server for three months, identify the user that published them, and automatically email the user to find out if the service should be saved any longer. If yes, remind the user in another month. If no, delete the service. If no response, delete the service.

Any ideas for how to approach implementing this? Just looking for overall strategies here. Thanks
