Such as 2 months with no posts.
yes!1 is agree! they should be removeagagdfj
Why do you suggest this?
I don't like necro-resurrecting as the next guy, but I guess you can't really do something like that, as sometimes it's not a bad idea to bump a thread just to ask another question.
If every noob would do that, the forums would be a lot more cleaner, without a lot of dupe threads like "I CAN'T SETUP MY r4!!1".
Too bad that most of the times threads get bumped for a stupid reason
My reason for agreeing is because people go back and revive threads and they don't even know it, self lock will save the mods a lot of time
no i read a thread from 1 year ago and it really helped me
Ummm....That's not what we're talking about. Locking threads prevents people from POSTING on threads that were last posted on a year ago.
No, they need to stay open so if someone ever needs more help on the same thing he/she doesn't have say everything over again in a new topic.
What?!?!? If the thread is outdated than they'd need to explain everything anyway!
And BTW what's with your info saying "Banned!"
It's a custom title you can make (or any other title as you wish) after like 500 posts. To actually be banned, your "member group" would probably be "Banned!"
Oh, it's custom. It had me confused for a while. I know about custom banners.
Why would you do this? The reason why GBAtemp has a lot of post counts and slowdowns is because we don't lock the threads so people can spam and increase the traffic. This will result into more money from ads.
Example: A while ago I saw a dead thread about someone asking for help with softmodding their wii with cIOS rev2(!!!!!) from mid 2008, I think, and then someone posted the reply this month, "Follow xzxero's guide"
Yes, I like that better!!!
I prefer that idea, minus the bit with the banning, but a warning would be good.
Honestly I don't understand why anyone would even give a crap about this subject. If you see an old thread skip it. There's plenty of bad threads that are posted every day. Why not lock new threads that are stupid.
The notice about an old thread has been used on other forums
Keep in mind though, a bump is only a useless post that updates the thread. If the post is good quality (even reviving an old EoF thread), then there should be no problem with it.
I think a simple reminder at the top when your posting would be good.
