i've noticed threads get auto-locked after 3 months without any answer so i guess that's considered as old?
therefore, answering or bringing new on-topic aspects into threads that had an answer less than 3 months ago should be considered as valid?
if not, i would recommend to either shorten the timespan for auto-locking or stop cutting off discourses artificially as done by calisro on this thread.
that way, forum members might have a potentionally less frustrating experience and mods would have less to care about, a win-win situation from my POV.
what do you think?
