How long should they be allowed to run?
Just recently, one chap had this thread http://klboard.ath.cx/index.php?showtopic=87819 running for three days, and it kept getting bumped to the top, often by himself.
More than a day later another chap started a new one, and this one http://klboard.ath.cx/index.php?showtopic=88078 got closed down when the other did, both of these threads contained a bit of spam, so how come one of them got to run longer? it somehow doesn't seem fair.
Personally, I'd prefer it if we had it Skweeky's way, and all threads about new forums had a section, or all announcements had to be made in a dedicated thread, but if they can't, shouldn't the same rules and the same limitations apply for everyone? And what should those limitations be?
