    Just wondering why so many topics are being closed lately, sometimes with no apparent reason at all like this one:

    Topics more than a year old are being closed.

    Surely that should only be topics that were last active more than a year ago should be closed.

    exactly my opinion. can't understand why the montyspam topic has been closed. of course its been dragging along, but its a wonderful plugin.

    Well, I don't know for certain but:

    a) a lot of old threads come up in search that new people reply to when they should really start a new thread

    b) for the montyspam thread, maybe it would be better supported over in its own space

    c) spring cleaning :P

    It's a plugin the forum inherited from WordPress.org, sorry. I think it's a good idea though.

    That Montyspam thread has grown so long it really should go into another thread, or preferably go into it's own thread on the author's site. Has he ever released a public version? Do you still have to email him to be invited on the beta test? (I'm not going to trawl through 9 pages of messages to find out, the last 2 pages didn't have any links)

    :-) I'm fine with the decision, it should just have been mentioned somewhere that threads older than XX are going to be closed...

    montyspam is still in beta but working perfectly for quite a bunch of sites and as far as I know no email is required, but am not sure about it...

    Heh, that montyspam thread deserved it's own religion!
