Thread: Why lock a topic because it is old?

  1. #1
    I noticed a thread was locked because it was "old".

    Can somebody explain that logic.

    If people have enough interest to bump it, then it is still active. If people don't like the topic, it will soon disappear.

    I'm just unclear how it "helps" the forum. Who thinks "great, that topic is locked, that's why I love this board".

    Or are people more likely to say, "WTF, that was unnecessary Mod intervention".

    A nice example of how Mods can screw the board by micromanagement.

    When a Mod does something, he needs to ask himself, "Why is this necessary and how will this improve the board".
    Aren't we in the trust tree, thingey?

    Absolutely correct, Hobbes, as ever.

    Not to mention the huge cache of threads that have gone the way of the betamax.

    The board is doomed, I say.

    I agree , if they can't leave the threads as is, we don't have a hope in hell!


    I vote that this should be moved to everthing related to this board!

    I believe I read somewhere that Admin/Mods do not have to account to the members for their actions. That is why the Forum is in the state that it is today. They have just got their necessary and unnecessary actions mixed up.
    The best way to keep a secret:- Tell everyone not to tell anyone.
