Locked topics are driving me nuts! They tend to acumulate and really clutter certain forums. Is it feasible to impliment a system that auto-deletes locked topics after a certain amount of time? Just a humble suggustions...
Daniel, Locked forums do drop off the first page after enough new posts are created. And they would have to stay for quite a while so someone would know where their post went when they next visit the site.
So now you run into the paradox that you need to keep locked threads for recent posts and that locked threads in old posts aren't as annoying.
The jsp forum has 10 locked posts on the first page... I was just throwing the idea out there... What if instead of locking it was deleted and a notification was sent? Or if when it is relocated the user becomes able to delete the original post? If you think about it off topic posts are never moved or relocated, they just get cloned and continue to sit there wasting space.
Just ideas... I doubt they'll be taken seriously... or are even worth of being taken seriously
