    OK, it has come to my attention that some threads are being brought back from the dead instead of making new threads. New threads are important as well so we need to work on improving this. Going to attempt this in a couple ways.

    1. Going to encourage new threads in Events etc.
    2. Will develop a system to lock old threads. Have two possibilities for this: locking based on time of the thread or locking due to page number in its forum.

    May even do a combination of those two ways for the locking of old threads.

    Thoughts and ideas?

    Yea, we can turn a negative into a positive:).

    We need to develop a system that can not only be executed but also maintained going forward.

    Still need the time and where the time would start at if doing it that way. For example, Free MMORPG Trivia has been around for many years:).

    So maybe the last reply would be where to start?

    Stickied threads should be excluded anyways. With time you'd go by the most recent post. So if the most recent post of a thread is say a year ago or further then it gets locked. Start date wouldn't matter, if a thread from 8 years ago was legitimately still active today then it wouldn't be locked because it's still active.

    Some sections wouldn't need to be locked at all, like Champion Versus. I don't think they need to be locked because they don't become irrelevant in mass as time goes on... unless the game closes or a hero is removed but then you'd just adjust anyways. Forum Games is probably another one, it has a system for closures anyways. Trims might be not be a bad idea though. Giveaways obviously wouldn't need it either.

    On the flip side a section like Budget Gaming could actually use a lot more aggressive locking as deals don't last long, ideally they close when the deal ends but that would be kinda ridiculous to track. Intros too, no need to welcome someone a month after they join.

    Ok, sounds good:). Here is what we have so far:

    1. Stickies are exempt from this.
    2. If the most recent post of a thread is a year ago or longer then it gets locked.
    3. Some forums need it more than others.

    Based on these, the mods can start doing this now:).
