What if everyone got the option to close the threads that they've started? That way, if they had a question and got an answer, they could close the thread to new responses. This would help avoid lots of derailing.

I don't think that's possible within the administrative options that the forum software has. However, we have in the past honored requests by the thread creator to close/delete the thread if it's for a good reason.

I didn't think it was possible. But I thought I'd throw it out there in case there was a similar measure that could be taken. smile.gif Sucks to have to bother a mod every time a thread gets derailed...

And if there's concern that people would close threads just because they didn't like the answers they were getting, maybe we could require the OP to give a 24 hour warning, like "We're starting to get off topic; this thread will be closed in 24 hours so if you have something constructive to say, you have until this time tomorrow to chime in." Then, the thread could be split into whatever the new topic has become and go back to being within guidelines...



sounds ok, but people would just get around it by starting thier own threads about the drama all over again, and then we would be over clogged with a bunch of dead threads

Meh, I don't know if many threads with a few posts creates any more "clog" than few threads with many posts...

You used to be able to moderate your own threads. I notified Lance of this a long time ago so he could fix it.

So whatever happened to all this talk? Just talk?
