How do topics get and I quote "destroyed" They are still there and referenced by multiple search engines.
Have you actually read the whole of this thread ?
Ya know the bit about opening if needed.
Or the bit about "one hit wonders"
Which accounts for a large portion of users and posts.
Even maybe the "mee too"
Which used to be a real headache for moderators.
Captcha oh you mean CRAPTCHA
Yea lets see how many jump ship if you bring that in
We already rely on the community to spot errant posts etc. for moderation.
Maybe you missed that in your rush to post ?
Or do you want to make everyone a moderator ?
Have you checked out what the new forum software offers ?
Doesn't seem like it or you would know that 2FA and more are already active for those who want to use it. Many of us don't for a variety of reasons and there is a thread about somewhere for 2FA and craptcha I think.
I see about 2-3 open old post requests per month from the moderator perspective.
Certainly don't see the need to change the auto lock in any major way.
Oh and BTW almost all the moderators do this work FREELY and devote a lot of time and effort into keeping the forum running smoothly.
Maybe take a read of the attached file
