    How about threads that have been inactive for a month automatically close? Further discussion of course would not be prevented by people starting new threads. This would prevent the rather idiotic practice of answering a thread that applied three, six and even twelve months ago. cf. the annoucements forum.

    That's a good suggestion ... because I was also wondering why the announcements forum was full of new post, but it seems to be all very old threads that where replayed to.

    Maybe it's usefull to also show the Creation date of the thread (or First post), next to the Last post. This way it's easier to see how old a thread, instead of opening it to find out that is was a very old one ...

    In light of the fact that marinakatomb decided for some unknown reason to **** up (expletive deleted) the Announcements Forum with a series of inane posts so that it is now very difficult to identify the latest announcements regarding the site it would seem that something needs to be done.

    Perhaps this particular Forum could be organised so that the most recent announcement always stays on top.

    I think that the annoucement fora should only be allowed to be posted to by the moderators.

    I agree. Any replies I've seen in that forum seem only to be encouraging remarks about what a good job Russ & Co. are doing.
