I have one proposal :
If a newly created thread dowsnt get at least 3-5 replies within one week (number can be settled down later), such a thread will be removed/merged/whatever.
Reasoning: some posters (namely BigMatthew, StillLEarning f.e.) are opening threads which nobody care to discuss - not even thread openers alone it seems. We have forum polluted with too many threads with 0,1 or 2 replies at most.
I dont say those threads are bad. There is just too many of them. Posters (especially newbies) needs to learn a bit about timing of thread´s opening. We want to keep activity in forum, but with axtivity we mean DISCUSSION, not a flood of new and new empty threads which are bumped at the top and pushing quality discussions to the Page 2.
When someone opens a thread and dont´s post a single one post since then into that thread, it indicates to me that that person has nothing else to say about the topic, thus not being capable to discuss about thread he opened. Even if it means talking to yourself, which is in case of no interest the only way how to keep the thread alive.
Agreed ? Have your say today/tomorrow please. Say your suggestions about numbers (min 3-5 replies within 3-5-7 days ???) I will do nothing until I get Feedback from you, let´s say till tomorrow midnight. Thanks in advance.
