    Why are there so many locked threads? Do you lock threads after a certain period of time passes?

    Can you be more specific- is it a certain place?? Stickies are locked
    Is there a reason you want to answer an old thread? Just curious as to why this is coming up so I can get you an answer..........

    When I first joined, I went into the archives a bit....Maybe Jedi Sena has something important to add to an old thread....We always welcome new outlooks and takes ....

    It just seems that in each forum section there are only a few active threads and I've always gotten the impression at other forums that they want each topic to be covered thoroughly on the same thread instead of starting a new one. I'm just getting to know my way around here, and can't even figure out how to get reply notifications. But it makes sense that it is due to a time constraint. I'm satisfied with that explanation. It wasn't meant as a remark (I hope you didn't take it that way); I was just curious. There were a few locked threads where I thought I could make a meaningful addition, but it's no big deal. Knowing that threads are closed in 90 days, I'll just have to visit more often if I want to participate. Thanks for the info!

    On closer inspection, only a few forum sections seem to have many locked threads, and those must be the least popular subjects. Aaaaah! The light bulb goes on! Finally!
