Locking up old threads

Due to the recent thread digging that is happening, would it be possible to automatically lock the threads after like 1 year of no activity? Then if someone wants to revive it from the dead (with a good reason) a moderator could possibly unlock it.

Just throwing the idea around as people have been posting in 3+ years old thread recently...

I totally agree, do not lock old threads. I think they can be relevant when when updated with new information and it is fun to see how things change/progress over time.

I'm fine with old threads being resurrected too. If its appropriate it adds something new, if its not appropriate its usually a laugh anyway

Killclimbz and I, good sir. my my your grammar is appalling!





just kidding, i butcher about every post i make.

but i totally agree, its crazy to see what some people revive but its pretty funny for the most part. It does seem like a bit of a hassle to have to ask a mod to unlock a thread just to put a reply in it. sometimes people have a question or comment on a question in a thread from a year or two ago, so might as well revive the old thread so we can all look at it and laugh

If you don't like the way I drive, stay off the sidewalk.
