Just wanted to know when do you close a thread??
When all pertinent information has been discussed, and it appears that future posts will only cause trouble.
there is no way i can refer back to those??
You can read them, you just can't reply to them.
Like [post=156243]this[/post] or [thread=31106]this[/thread]? There are url, thread, and post tags.
There are other reasons for threads being closed also.
For instance, a thread may be created which is adressing content forbidden on this website. Such matters as P2P program assistance is prohibited, for example, and assistance with warezed software.
Also, a post may be made that 'resurrects' a long stagnant thread by simply tacking a further question onto it rather than starting a new thread for the new question.
In such situations moderators may, at their discretion, choose that closing the thread is the most suitable course of action.
Nice information dear! :)
