We (Moderator team) go over forum posts from time to time to see if there is still activity in a topic. We run into many topics that had initial impact, discussions follow and then the overall value/meaning of that forum diminishes.
The more topics that remain open, the more forums that members have to go through to see what is new and what is not.
We were thinking of putting a new procedure into place:
For those Forum topics that do not have any updates for at least 2 weeks, we will close them.
We would to put this out to the member community to get some feedback. Even if we implement this and close forums we always have the ability to reopen the forum for any valid reason
