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?

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.

Good work.
