Hello necroposting an old thread

[Admin Note: Split thread to make current.]

An autolocking feature for inactive inpopular thread's would be a good idea...

lol.. I am presuming you linked off my reply to the OT thread - "Who was the first TF poster" (or something rather) thread..

Personally, I don't have a problem with necroposting. As long as it's not about "help me with my computer issue" type of thread. If it's a "theory/pure technology" type thread, I don't really see a problem if contributions are made later on..... Or even suggestions. Much like this thread

Good suggestion. That may be a hack for this version and I'll definitely look for it.

I personally wish we had faster members to report those posts instead of just replying trash to them. However, I'm looking into getting pocket rockets for all the Mods. I'm just kidding. Seriously, reporting the spam will help us to get rid of it faster.

I agree with that, unless the thread gets to be a couple of years old like this one (which I split to make current). I think that most threads should be closed after about a month of no replies.

i like the alt text preview option some some other boards have. You mouseover the thread topic and the alt text displays a preview of the first line or so.

Isn't that what the "E-mail notification" check box is for?
