How come the Europe forums for WoW have this thing where threads automatically lock one month after the first reply and we do not? Necroing threads is against the rules since it could cause confusion and discourages making new threads, but without prevention it just keeps happening every now and then.

I was actually just discussing this with a colleague yesterday. We didn’t immediately agree on the right timeframe for a thread to close after its last post, but it seems like 60 or 90 days is more than enough time.

We’ve certainly had a different time for the last 14 months. It’s hard to know what we need though. This region includes all of the Americas, Australia, and New Zealand.

But the setting isn’t by-region. It’s by-forum. And we can test it on a specific forum, if we want to. For instance, a bug report forum is a place where we’ve read every post extensively, and perhaps don’t want older threads revived when a player experiences something new.

Can you (or anyone) elaborate on this? Do you mean the “Top” threads listing?

Thank you for the clarification!

I’ve just changed the settings that govern the suggested topics below. We’ll see what happens.
