  • Close Old Threads

    How about closing threads older than a year or so old. They can still be read but no one can post to it. If needed they can start a new thread. One pops up and you think it is something new but the previous post is very old. Many are long and you need to wade through them to see what the original poster said.

    I agree with orhusky!!!

    People. Why are we digging up a post from 3 years ago just to rant ? Am I missing something here? Let’s move on with helpful information that benefits the members.

      This had been one of my thoughts recently but have not had the time to do a search to see if its possible to have the thread close automatically after a predetermine set of time has passed. I have it on my calendar to look into after the holidays and rally sign up dust settles.

          I often find old threads to be informative and helpful and bumping them up with a new post and question makes sense to me instead of starting a new thread on the exact same topic. The info in the old thread can be pertinent to the new question, I prefer to bump an old thread with a new question and keep the conversation rolling.

          I think the example used above was a "troll" posting to an old thread.

              Oh come on these are classic threads which never get old! I often will just pick a page on the joke thread and reread the posts.

                So the reason someone finds these threads, and brings them back to life, is exactly why they should remain active. Someone has found them useful and wants to inject either an opinion or ask a question, and there is nothing wrong with that. If we close all the older threads, we are cutting communications with our newer members that never had a chance to voice anything in the first place. Old news just might be good news to those that dig them up. Why stifle their interests?

                  I agree!! Often times I will go looking for advice and find an old thread. I really like the option of just adding to the old thread. In fact, I have seen new info on an "old thread" that I missed the first go around and now see it and find it very useful. Or maybe at the time the "old thread" was written I was not interested in the topic or I was not having the same problem or issue, but now, with the new info added, it brings it back up and maybe now I really need it.

                  So, all that rambling on, my vote is to keep the old threads like they were meant to be used.
