What happens if I remove the card repeater power-up?

I am considering removing the card repeater power-up, because there are just so many cards in my boards now that absolutely will not die, no matter what I do. Nothing will make them go away--not archiving and deleting, not moving them to another board, not removing the repeat. It's driving l me crazy and I'm considering just removing the power-up altogether, but I'm concerned about what this will do to my cards that are currently hanging in repeat mode.


I can't see these cards because I've already told them to come back weeks or months from now. If I remove the repeater, will they land back on my board as a regular old card? Or will they disappear because they're not due to return to my board until XYZ date?

Hi @Lindsey_Ross based on this help document it looks like the cards will be saved, in case you reactivate the power-up. I know this is frustrating as you tried everything to get that card to stop repeating, but there appears to be a work around (you may have already tried).

See the steps in this post, that way you may not have to disable it after-all. However if you do disable it and re-enable it, it may fix the mysterious bug of the un-dying cards.

Hi @Lindsey_Ross what happened to the cards when you removed the power-up?



They did finally stop repeating when I removed the power-up, now I'm just trying to make sure I don't accidentally delete them since I know they won't be coming back now!

Thanks @Lindsey_Ross I am glad they finally stopped repeating. I wonder if you turned it back on if the bug would be resolved (eg. be able to stop the repetition on the cards).
