    Hello there!
    I have come with yet another amazing suggestion that will help a lot of players and maybe some staff members! So I hope you enjoy this and please read to the end!

    What is your suggestion?
    To have a specific staff member, or more to automatically to around on posts to lock them so nobody will be able to 'Necro-Post' If you don't know what this is, it means: Posting on threads more than 3 weeks old that no longer server a purpose!

    This would allow users to longer worry bout having a calendar on their screen almost every time you use the forums and be actually able to peacefully go through the forums.

    A different way to prevent this is to create a bot that will constantly update each day to a specific date to lock each thread. This is not hard to do as I have done this before with a bot. All you have to do is make it auto lock thread after a curtain period. Just set the default time back 3 weeks exactly to make this operational.

    Hope this will be implemented and will see you in the next suggestion, bye!​

    Hello there,

    I commend you for submitting a suggestion to our team, but regret to inform you that after discussion it has been denied. We allow necro-posting on some threads, such as on sticky posts and announcements. For this reason, a Forums robot would be ineffective for the function you suggested. Furthermore, we believe that three weeks is the right time for us to allow between posts before necro-posting is punished for. We will keep this aspect of our Forums Rules unchanged for now. Thanks for your suggestion.

    Thanks,
    invaderr
