Im serious why are people doing this....can we get like something that LOCKS threads that are over a month old or something?

I agree, locking old posts should definitely be enforced...I hate coming to the boards only to see the same posts I replied on a month ago...the thing is, you don't remember if you replied to them that long ago or not, so I'm going through all these posts to see if I already posted my input, so I don't end up spamming...is it just me, or does anyone else not pay any attention to page 2 or beyond? I rarely go to page 2 of any board....I usually only go if I posted a thread that I'd like to check for unread replies...but that's about it...anyway, you should definitely let Deltan or any other Mod know about this, locking old posts is a great idea.

thats another thing we have been talking about people posting stuff like that

I think that there should be a one sentence rule for posts. Every post should have at least one sentence, and try to be on topic, just as a courtesy to other posters. I have had a few phrase answers myself, but at least its on topic. Fortunately, I usually have a lot to say when I post.  

,

As for the responses to old posts issue, thread locking is an option, at least for stuff that is really old, at least three months. If a subject has already been addressed, such as a particular question needing to be answered, it should be locked immediately. Poll style questions, such as favorite this or that should be locked after a week.  This would put a stop to a lot of bumping I think.

I will only reply to a thread that's less than a week old since the last post, if that. I usually only reply to threads that have been "inactive" for up to three days.
