Autolock old topics

Recommended Posts

So some of the boards have been having a problem regarding new users bumping topics that haven't had posts in 6 or more months, and basically saying nothing useful. Oftentimes the topic was asking about help with a level or boss in a game, having long since gotten the help they need, and then being bumped anyway. Or bringing up a long dead discussion and responding with fluff. And every time, a moderator inevitably has to take time out of their day to close it. I was thinking it would save you guys time if there was a way to autolock topics that haven't been posted in, say in 2-3 months.

That would work, provided that the mods could also still unlock them later if necessary. There have been a few cases where it's reasonable to revive them after a long period of time. Like art and writing threads.

Or make it so the creator of the topic could bump it, if needed.

It's not even that big a deal in how often it happens 

Like we have some threads we have an exeption for like project and art threads like Ana mentioned. We like to keep them open for the creators to keep updating the threads. A lot of rom hacks and projects can take a while so it's good to keep them open instead of having a auto lock system, where they would have to contact us to open it, it's a lot easier to just let them stay open.

Another is that outside of the FEH and 3H forums are they're not super busy anymore, so as long as they're on the front page they're still considered active, we won't give a warn for posting in those threads.

and it takes me less than 5 seconds to lock a thread.

I have a solution:

Autolocking topics will only happen to threads that are not on the front page AND have no posts in over a month, but cannot happen to topics in the art/projects threads, as well as Far From the Forest.
