Re: Closing Threads?
On a whole threads run forever unless they are either straying from the topic way too much or becoming really negative for some reason.
I think that one reason this forum has gained a reputation for being positive & friendly is that we have always had moderators who were active. By active I mean reading the threads not just the title line.
On some internet forums you almost never see a post from the moderators and often as you look through a thread things may be going sideways. We try not to over manage but there is a thin line between managing and over managing things. Many threads that you find closed are the result of someone reporting that thread. When that happens there is always a chance of them being closed.
Hope that kinda explains a little,
