I understand the moderators do their job to keep the forums clean, I respect that.
However I’ve noticed recently that a lot of moderators will close a thread after someone replies with an answer, sometimes that answer isn’t sufficient or actually doesnt answer the question.
What if someone else had a question for the answer that was provided? They can’t ask because the thread got closed.
I also notice that threads/questions will get shutdown for being “duplicates” however when people link the older thread 99.9% of the time the old thread is closed because no one replied to it for 3 months.
I can understand why posts get deleted but I’m finding the whole automatic thread closing feature counter productive to what moderators are trying to achieve.
Automatically threads will close within 3 months provided that no one replied
Cons: People with the same question looking to more answers cant ask without making a new thread, unfortunetly that thread will be closed because it’s a duplicate.
Pros: there are none, because people will continue to make duplicate threads because the thread they need is locked because of the automatic closing ( or a mod found it to be answered)
Not trying to bag on the mods- you guys rock for volunteering time to clean up the forums, however you’re working twice as much because of an automatic system.
