I want to reply, but once achieved, there is no way. I don’t understand why it is so “mandatory” not to allow users to reply.
As far as I know, StackOverflow doesn’t make it so mandatory. It just shows a message like: “This question has more than 30 answers already. answers… Please note that you can click the edit link on any of these answers to improve them.”
No offense, I didn’t mean to compare the forums. I was just curious as to why.
If really achieved, no one can’t edit anymore; I would like to count at least a period of time (TBD) from the last answerers backward if no-one replies before the archive can be made.
Another question is, is it possible to edit answers for others in this community? Sometimes I want to improve answers for someone else’s answer, but I can only edit my answers. (Is it because of the lack of reputation?)
I will ask this question because I want to tell it that it’s similar to Golang.range, it is helpful to learn a little go before starting the Hugo template.
The last question was
2.1 unrelated to the original (i.e. off-topic)
2.2 already answered
It really should have been archived the first time it was bumped (5 years after the initial post), but there’s only a handful of us mods and things get missed.
One of the main reasons we archive old topics is because Hugo has changed a LOT over the years, and sometimes the original topic is no longer relevant to the current state of Hugo. Also, very often, the original discussion participants are no longer active in the forum.
