    This suggestion will help deal with those pesky thread revivers out there.
    Once a thread has gone unnoticed for say a month or so, the thread will be automatically locked.
    For a thread to be considered outdated, it must have gone a whole month without anybody commenting on it.
    Opinions?
    :eek: :eek: :eek: Wow, that thread was so short and to the point i could have set it as a status :eek: :eek: :eek:

    First of all, moved to suggestions..

    Could work if it could be assigned to certain sections; media threads don't need to be locked. But then, thinking about it more, some threads like one that got forgotten and lost in time, sometimes should be revived. Ban appeals and mute appeals that went unnoticed sometimes need to be revived too. And then some thread owners might want to make a thread on a creative build, then want to post more.

    So, although thread revivers are annoying, sometimes thread revives are needed. So I say nup.

    I don't think it would be possible.
