Should we close old discussions? I spoke about the warning, because I believe it covers the rendered portion of the message composer, and for my purposes, if I go through a bunch that trigger that message it would annoy me (despite the fact that it might not actually affect me as a mod, it would have as a Regular). So that is my thoughts on the warning.
However, necros be necro-ing.
I feel that we either solve the problems, or Hugo moves on and makes a problem irrelevant. And I would like to encourage contemporary documentation of current issues, rather than commenting “5 months later”.
I don’t have a strong opinion about this, because I know a lot of people joining aren’t as comfortable or familiar with Discourse. For me, when I join a new instance, I don’t necro, I “reply as a new thread”, if I want to continue a conversation. And while I would love to have @discobot explain that, I am not sure it would move the needle for us.
I could look and see if there is a prior conversation about closing them, but meh, let’s roll with just how meta this is, and discuss here. I would ask: is there any response you’ve seen by a non-admin/mod-person after, say, a month, that added value to a post? How about 3 months? 6 months?
