C'mon, how about locking old posts

hatless | Apr 3, 2007 09:27 AM


If there's some religious opposition to locking old threads after some period of inactivity (90 days? 6 months?), how about at least popping up some sort of scary dialog when someone hits a reply on an old post warning them that it's X years old and offering to let them create a new thread with a similar title?

Old threads have value and I can even see value in being able to associate them somehow with new threads on the same subject and vice versa, but I can't see anything but confusion coming from being able to reply in the normal way to an old post.
