I am impressed that every now and then an old thread pops up with a new comment. Some threads are 6 years, 7 years or older. Nice to know Hubbers are still interested enough to comment.
Problem is, a lot of the info in those threads is way out of date. New people could get entirely the wrong idea.
Personally, I find it rather irritating Kenna. Most forums have an automatic thread closure after a specific period of time. Only wish HP would do the same.
I agree, most of the time it's spammers reviving threads that should have remained dead and buried. I think archiving old threads and making them read only is a fantastic idea - but we shouldn't be commenting on threads that old. Start a new one already.
I beg to differ. New people and see what HP did in the past, so understand the platform better. Each individual is on a journey in HP. They can learn and create.
The thing is sometimes the fourms show me stuff from years ago mixed in with current stuff. I know better to than to comment but it is like the system wants you to or at least read old stuff.

I just noticed that Matthew replied to a question from a Hubber and immediately closed the threadThere used to be an unspoken policy on the forums - a thread was only closed if things got too heated and unpleasant. I hope that policy is not going to change, for several reasons. For one thing,...

Dear staff, is there anything that can be done to the feed where I can choose not to receive notice of hubs shared by other hubbers? There are people who share every hub they read. If I want to read a hub or follow someone I will. I don't need to see all those hubs of people I don't even know in my...

Now I have nothing against Nincomp, that sweet lil pony who started a wildly successful thread so very long ago-http://hubpages.com/forum/topic/15440#top...But, folks, don't you think we're acting somewhat like lemmings in search of the unattainable cliff without a ledge?Seems to me that we,...
