Thank you, Though I think it would be ok to keep posts and also topics open longer, I mean 6 months was not enough
Sometime I find my self realize months later or even a year later I was giving wrong or out of date info and I go and fix it for those who search the forum in the future. It would not always make sense to create a double post only to say it is an update/fix to a previous topic “here”. Only create mess for those who search.
It is also drive me crazy when I find a topic on other forums that explains my problem very well but has not been answered or the solution is out of date, doesn’t work any more and I find the solution and want to post it or I want to ask more questions but I can’t because it is closed due to inactivity or date. So then I need to open a new topic, explain the same problem again and that I tried the solution posted on the other topic “here” and “there” and “this too”…etc and ask basically the same question again.
I also often find people view repeated topics less likely because they see the title and know it have been answered or discussed already and they don’t even bother to read the new topic again. I also sometime do the same, I see a question here, I know it have been answered or talked about on the forum before and I don’t even bother opening it. But if someone bump an old topic, I more likely take a look what is going on now.
But it is maybe just me.
