Would it be possible to implement a feature where non-sticky threads over a certain age are automatically locked? I mean, this place is pretty slow to begin with, but it seems like at least once a week someone digs up some ancient thread on google or somewhere and bumps it, and then all the replies are "this thread is 37 years old what are you doing." It would be a lot easier if those older threads are just automatically locked before they're bumped, like a lot of forums do.

I've considered it, but for starters I'm just going to be archiving a good chunk of the forums, some time next month. I'll post more about it once it happens.

That works, too. Glad to know that something is in the works, at least!
