With our amazing Moderators on this Forum, at lot of posts get closed quickly, keeping things nice and clean.
And when I click on ‘Latest’ to see the topics with recent replies and updates, I see a lot of closed topics.
Is there a filter to view only open topics?
If not, would it then be an idea to add this?
When I refer to “their” I’m talking about Discourse, this forum platform and the Discourse team. :)
The developers of Discourse have a separate forum set up for feature requests, bug reports, hosting tips, etc. The list goes on. Create a user there and you can request a new feature through their feature category.
Unlisting all closed topics would be counterproductive because there are times when we want people to see it. If there’s a common mistake and we address it, we obviously want it to be visible to everyone so people don’t make the same mistake.
Topics that we do unlist are topics that are spammy, obvious violations of guidelines, etc.
