I noticed that Discourse is automatically closing threads that have not had a reply for 30 hours. (At least it did on one thread I had contributed to).
I remember on the old forums that it was quite common for people to re-comment on old posts if they had something additional to add. Sometimes this would be an alternative solution to the issue raised, or further information on the problem.
I don’t know if that caused problems that I am unaware of, but I found it quite useful. It prevented people from creating new posts to discuss old problems.
Do people think it could be helpful if threads were not automatically closed?
