    Yeah this is getting annoying.
    Like a iggly tiggly shity little tag nut
    Its nearly every day that somebody (mostly a new member)posts in a topic that has been dead for over a year and trys to "talk to ghosts"
    Before the time warp we had a "Auto thread lock" that I think was set at three months old.
    Any chance of getting it back on?

    This would be nice. I think this should definitely be re-implemented, Prinny.

    I would totally like this. I think a thread should auto-lock after say, six months with no replies.

    As mentioned above, the problem with locking older threads is that new duplicate threads will be started.

    Lock after a few months (say two)then get rid.
    Unless its in the friend codes or spam section

    Dupe threads are only a problem if there's more than two live ones at once
    Say if the thread goes to the fifth page consider it deader than a that parrot from that sketch

    You know the one that has cased to be
    The one that has gone to meet its maker
    The one that is most definitely not stunned JUST DEAD!

    First time I think I've ever really disagreed with you Prinny. I mean I understand for things like the WiiChat Writers Wanted thread. That had no reason to be bumped. But if there's an old thread and someone new wants to attempt to revitalize the topic by adding their own input then they should be allowed to do so. If they bump a thread by saying "I agree with OP lol" and then leave, then they fail. But there's no reason someone with a well thought out response should be barred from a discussion simply because they weren't around when the thread was started. We should be embracing new members, not shunning them.

    See now when people like ShyestGuye here bump threads I want to punch babies, but we shouldn't let spammers ruin the fun for everyone.

    Giving this a bit of a bump up

    Anyone else noticed the amount of noobs doing this thing?
    Three year old threads getting bumpped up?
    Ok if its the only time its been asked ill give you that, but the "can I play imports on my Wii question?"
    Wii get asked that a few times each week.

    The auto-lock part is a great idea, but not auto-delete. I do not wish to erase WiiChat's *hem hem* illustrious history.
    But as for, say, a three-month auto lock, that sounds great!
