Timing of Topic Locks

Couldn’t find a category for “forum decorum”, so I posted here, since the reply was completely different from the original thread …

I’m happy with how the topics close …

  • within 24 hours after the last reply if the original poster has marked a reply to be a solution.
  • within a week after last reply of any “unsolved” topics.

I don’t mind meandering discourse, but they become tedious to read when you search for a solution, click a topic, and discover that users have gone on about anything but answers to the topic.

It’s not that hard to start a new topic. Oh, look! I just did!
