    Who thinks that locking threads that are old, say 2 months without a post, would work? I think its sort of a good idea, since it can get annoying when someone posts on an old thread in the emergency forum and your thread gets ignored. [​IMG]

    Quote:I don't think that will work because that's part of what makes a lot of threads helpful is being able to go back and ask additional questions later. BUT...

    I would LOVE that! And then ancient threads that you haven't posted in for a LONG time wouldn't keep popping up to the top when you hit "show your posts". Personally, I would love a way to unsubscribe, or to stop seeing threads pop up with new posts without having to go back through old threads and remove all your posts... [​IMG]

    I wish the emergency section was subdivided by type of emergency (ie. respiratory, digestive, reproductive, etc.) so it's easier to find things. People tend to ask the same questions that have been asked in the past because it takes too long to find a similar problem and solution.

    I can think of a number of reasons why old threads might be resurrected. I would not be in favor of locking them merely because they've reached a certain age.

    Yeah, I see your points. Its just that its irritating when you see a thread from 2009 about something like chickens pecking toes drowning out your thread. [​IMG] [​IMG]
