Just wondering how old is too old for a thread to be replied to? I just seen one shut down for being six months old :confused: and the OP was still registered. This forum like most has a long list of rules, would it be possible to add one more with a specific thread cutoff time...?

Generally, if there hasn't been any new replies to a thread for 3 months or more we close them when they get revived. There are exceptions, like OP posting updates on a thread about their dog or some threads like the photo threads that are ancient. We miss some, of course, and we can't set threads to close automatically after a certain amount of time or change the "Recommended Reading" section.

If you see a thread that looks interesting but has been dead for months, just start your own thread about the topic or it will probably end up getting closed. I hope that helps.
