I've been seeing quite a few old threads pop up lately and people have just been replying to them like they're new.

Can we have something like, a force lock if a thread is over a year old with no replies if it's not stickied?

I liked Nameless' suggestion better.

There are cases where it's better for a thread to remain open, even if it's old. Sometimes people will bump a thread when the discussion becomes relevant again.

I think a warning to new users is a more appropriate response to the problem than auto-locking all the old threads. I realize that reopening old threads isn't always a good thing, but I think removing the option has the potential to cause more problems.

EDIT: Also, there are plenty of threads that get necroed before they are a year old. Nameless' suggestion allows for a warning system to be used MUCH earlier than that (I think a couple months would be fine), whereas an auto-lock system can't happen too soon or it might end up closing discussions that are still relevant.
Thanks to Janitsu for the sig!

But still, at a year of no posts, I think it should be auto-locked.

That suggestion for a warning before posting is a good idea. If they get a warning and still proceed, and it was in poor taste, then we are justified from there to step in and smack them.

well...I think a warning at first with an eventual autolock on threads more than a year old makes sense.

But that's just me.

Wouldn't you rather bait people into self-destruction for our entertainment though?

Lol... It does make sense, a year is a long time, just that there are some sticky/FAQ type threads that are very old but shouldn't necessarily be locked.
