...I think threads should be locked after a month since the last post in the thread.

The thing is, for the new users these aren't ancient threads. I don't think they should be closed if it was an active topic with good discussion and they decided to add their two cents.

But if someone ups when of the many off topic threads, or just in general if a thread goes off topic in a stupid direction, then it should be closed.

your suggestion is noted, but remember that it requires more work for me Very Happy

Of course, as people have said, old threads are actually new to new users.

I just don't understand why they find it necessary to bump threads from September.

Because if it's a good thread they may want to add something. It's not like they're bumping spam topics. Speaking of, Wizzard you should close the 3 word story thread.

EDIT: And the "Hello...I'm New Here" thread.

And Vending Machine.

Btw, here's a good example:
http://www.ninjafortress.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=68&start=0

Why did a thread about Murai's face need to be bumped?

I just had an idea. Maybe you could post a sticky to the top of each forum warning new users not to bump old topics.

I thought the three word story was dead.

And I suppose that the 'vending machine game' and the 'hello i'm new here' have gotten insanely off topic...

We can see when the last post was,if it was like a month ago,then dont post on it,Admins and mods should check everytime a post is made on a "dead" topic´

Edit: I have also seen that the users compilaiton went REALLY off topic,But,lets take the facts,the admin (Wich i rarely seen posting) and the mod (wich is not that strange,but still He barely warns off topic) dont give a sh!t about off topic.

But well,that is just my opinion and my 2 cents.....i mean 1/2 bs in my money sistem lol

I have gotten fairly nice about people going off topic and all. If any of you remember, the first few months the forums opened, I was really strict about everything. Of course Keylay does not want me to be so strict, because it would scare away members from posting.

Come on though, you actually bumped an ancient thread that was titled "To prevent ancient threads from popping up...".

Laughing That's hilarious.
