    I have an idea about automatically locking posts which have not had a reply for a certain number of days (maybe 60 or 90, could depend on which room it's in).

    I think it would be fairly easy to write a script to do this.

    It would prevent people dragging these old posts back to the top of the pile, but they would still be there for reference, and the mods could still unlock them if they suddenly became relevant again.

    Any thoughts?

    Didn't think so.

    Ok mods, you can close this one already.

    I like the idea, but I think 30 days would be even better than 60 or 90.

    The post would only be locked in the normal way, so you could PM a mod to unlock it.

    But if you just want to highlight it, you can just post a link.

    I think you&#39;ll find that there is a time limit..................it&#39;s qiute long tho, trouble is if old threads are left the DB fills up

    I think a thread should be locked before anyone answers beep

    Perhaps we could just ask those people to not keep bringing back those old topics?

    No offense, Somebody.... but YEAH RIGHT&#33;


    It always works so well when we ask people to search before they post questions, or to read the FAQ&#39;s before posting shite&#33;

    I&#39;m sure it would be similarly effective.
