[OUTDATED] Function

Quick Idea for the Forum:
For the newbies, including me, it'd be easy when you are able to see, that this thread is inacitve right away by adding an "[OUTDATED]" tag infront of it when there hasn't been a post in... let's say... 6 weeks?

Short:
When a thread hasn't been replied to within 6 weeks it will be tagged with [OUTDATED].

Would this be a good idea? Don't know. :lol:
It just came to me, because I apperantly "refreshed" very old threads.(?)

Re: [OUTDATED] Function

I do not thonk reviving a 6 weeks old thread is a bad thing. If we speak about threads that are not relevant anymore ( extreme example would be posting a bugreport in the first kam remake demo since it is mostlikely already fixed, we had some people revive 3, yes 3 year old threads) then i am not very pleased.

But a function like this gives a nice indication and may save mods some work locking every irrelevant threads manually.

6 weeks is a pure example. It could be 2,5,6,12 months(!) too. ^^

This seems like it would just be a lot of unnecessary work. Instead, just check to see the date the lat post was made. Problen solved ;)

Re: [OUTDATED] Function

Agree with Ben, if topic is so much outdated it can be just locked after the necropost.
