Forum Auto-Lock

Postby Phade » Fri Jul 15, 2005 11:23 pm

Hey All,

Say “goodbye” to necroposting. The forums have now been outfitted with an “auto-lock” function. This will automatically lock threads older than a certain age. The thread age limit has been set for each forum, but the general rule is 90 days. If you need a follow-up on a thread that is more than 3 months old, it’s probably better to just start a new thread.

I hope this helps. Thanks again and have a great day!!

Phade.

Sweet work (so I wasn't imagining things when I saw those locks)! :P

Man, this makes my old sig banner KillDieMurder made absolutely obsolete now. Well, I guess it goodbye to that one, I guess. :roll:

This doesn't apply to stickies, right?

Correct. It also doesn't apply to the Recommended AMVs forum.

This is all because of Penguin_Princess, isn't it?

The Birds are using humanity in order to throw something terrifying at this green pig. And then what happens to us all later, that’s simply not important to them…

Sounds like a nice idea, but can you not do this with the screencap forum? The mecha, avatar, favorite angels, and Warm and Nice screncaps will all be locked and a lot of other great threads. It'll be very troublesome to have to make multiple threads for a covered topic. I don't see why that wouldn't be reasonable for the screencap forum.

Hey x_rex30,

The threads will still there to view and read whenever you like. The threads aren't being deleted at all. The thing is if nobody cares about the thread within 3 months, why would they suddenly care to post after that? If they do care, why not create a new thread instead of necroposting the old one?

Because it's more convenient to have just a few long threads of screencaps, rather than lots of short ones?

Heh, yeah that's very reasonable. Sorry for the trouble. :oops: I was afraid of something like Anime Art Thread(a classic), or anime trivia(another classic) getting locked since there's been times when no one posted on them for a month. Can some threads get marked for non deletion? Just a suggestion. Either way, no biggie.

Nothing is getting deleted, only locked.

Good work.
