The resurrection of year old forum topics (we need a closed topic button) Answered
So this has been brought up a few times before but we seriously need a way trusted members of the site (like the feature team) and the staff can close topics.
Because lately alot of topics have been resurrected.
And although some topics (like posting games or so) should be able to stay open for posting most of the other topics should be closed after a while.
For example some guy responded to an "old ipod" topic that was posted more then two years ago and had zero replies before he replied. It's highly unlikely that that guy will still respond let alone be interested in the message "nobody's going to give you an ipod"
So my suggestion is that the members of the feature team and the staff get a "close topic" button. This way when a patch contest or forum bug or somet other old topic in that matter is closed/solved/simply to old they close down the topic.
The topic then gets moved to a special section called "closed topics" where it's open for viewing but posting is not available anymore.
I know this has been suggested a few times before but I'm just putting it back out there because I think we really need something like this on the site.
Suggestions and or thoughts are welcome and encouraged :)
