Default A Question About "Revived" Threads Getting Locked

Iím puzzled and curious about the criteria for locking an older thread that someone went and revived, because I noticed that this 2-month-old thread got locked - http://forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=648531

yet this thread didnít - http://forums.catholic.com/showthread.php?t=336602
and itís over 3 years old.

I wonder if it's perhaps a matter of different moderators having different criteria for when a thread is considered too old to be revived? Perhaps there are just some really old ones that slip under the radar? Can someone enlighten me? Thanks!

I noticed another thread that was closed despite being only a few months old. I've never noticed this happening before.

I find it stranger that the 3-year-old thread is still open! Oh well!

Lightbulb Re: A Question About "Revived" Threads Getting Locked

Since we do not use the forum software feature that auto closes threads over 1,000 posts or older than a certain period, I often will go in and close an old thread that has run its course, or which is several months to several years old and suddenly revived by someone that didn't check the date on the thread's opening post. I've closed several that were 5+ years old just in the last week.

The fact that the thread was so long dead generally indicates that the OP is no longer interested in that topic or may not even be an active member anymore and so will not respond. Hence...they get closed. In such cases...if you have an interest in that topic, it is better (by far) to open a new thread on it and proceed from there.


Oh...and...
