Jack_O'neill Posted April 5, 2009 Share Posted April 5, 2009 This may have been suggested before, but how bout an expiration date on old threads? Not one that makes the whole thing go away, as there may be good stuff there. This would just give people a chance to realize that they may be answering someone that hasn't been around in a long time. There have been a number of 2 or 3 year old threads that have suddenly come to life in the last few days. I admit, I'm pretty bad not to look at the dates, and have even started to reply to some of the old ones myself. I wouldn't want to completely prevent someone from resurrecting a discussion, but here's the idea. I'm no programmer, so I have no idea how hard this would be to do, but on a thread that has expired, when someone hits a reply button, if a dialog box popped up that says something to the effect of "The last activity on this thread was more than "x" months ago, do you wish to continue?" with a yes or no button. By activity, I mean the last post, not the last time someone read it. Thoughts, comments, yea or nay appreciated. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
