    I've noticed quite a few "threadkiller" threads lately but I've never seen a posting on what constitutes a "killed" thread. Just how long before the next post/reply should a thread lay dormant before it is considered dead nd the last person to post can claim "threadkiller" status?

    I'm assuming one point per dead thread but should there be bonus points for special situations?

    Have at it gang!!!

    [​IMG]I dunno, but some that have been revived required really diggin' up bones.

    I've read through pages & pages only to finally see they were a year+ old.

    Threads concerning the killing of threads are always popping up. If you regularly stalk the RR and GJF forums, you're bound to come across one sooner or later. :lol:

    As for real thread killers, I think you'd be looking at people like me, who post at times of night when the majority of people are asleep. :p

    I once was the king of thread killers.

    I'm much more disciplined now.

    They die when a moderator shuts them down.

    Stay within the rules and guidelines and threads don't usually get shut down...

    ... unless the TS/OP requests it.
