Should we lock down dead threads
« on: June 26, 2008, 05:20:57 PM »
To prevent unnecessary resurrection of the dead that a moratorium, be had for any stale threads.
If a thread that has not been posted to for about three months be closed to further posts and be set apart as archived to keep things fresh for the forum.
You see this...

From my experience on intraweb communities, threads die of their own accord.   If Threadcromancy is practiced, they usually die again.

If we had a high-traffic site where Threadcromancy would put in legitimate jeoprady the ability of the community to see new content, I could see making an issue out of this...but I think the mods have a handle on it already and we don't need to make more work for them by locking threads and archiving them.
