Alright. After being on the forum for some time I've really started to notice a bit of an issue in how old topics are dealt with. Everyday it seems a large portion of answered or mostly dead posts are revived due to one rogue poster that decided to grave dig. Now this isn't entirely a bad thing but hear me out. Grave digging (while not the end of the world) is not punished on this forum. How is that bad, you might ask? Well the issue is that these old posts tend to offer almost no relevant comments or information that hasn't already been mentioned in official developer comments or in sticky threads. Further more, most of the information shared in these threads tend to be re-posted in newer threads, making the older topic somewhat redundant. Personally I think that a feature, such as automatically locking threads that lack activity for a specific amount of time would be beneficial. I believe this will most likely help push new topics into the spotlight while ensuring older or outdated topics remain archived away for, at the very least, documentation. Do I think "grave diggers" should be punished? No, not at all. My only issue is that eventually it could be considered spam and that IS against the rules. If someone isn't willing to check the forums on a somewhat regular basis to give their input, why should they be allowed to flood the recent topics with old news? Lastly, YES, you can reply to ANY topics, no matter HOW old, as long as they have not been locked manually by a staff member. Anyhow, not completely necessary, I just think it would be better that we deal with this now before a large amount of players flood the forums as we get further along into the development of the game. Thank you for listening... or uh... reading.
