What is the point of automatically closing topics?

I really don’t understand why topics are automatically closed. It results in duplicated threads as users are forced to open new ones instead ideally having one big thread each topic. For me that behavior is kind of frustrating and it also requires more moderators work maintaining the forum and feature requests since they need to merge these duplicated topics.

Am I the only one?


Hey @Dennis_N appreciate the feedback here!

I agree that this could use some overall refinement. At the moment we’re working on cleaning up some of the categories here to hopefully make navigating and searching much easier. While doing this we’ll also be taking a closer look at these auto-close rules and removing them where it makes sense. :slight_smile:
