    Nice. Good suggestion.
    I think this would be a good idea.
    This could also save Moderators/Gmods/Admins a lot of work o_O
    But so far, we have Moderators / Gmods / Admins that are deleting every spammed post.
    Let's see what admins are saying
    Best regards, Tracky

    I would say 4-6 months. Some thread may needs a wake-up, not a go-to-sleep.

    +1, if you mean 4-6 months of inactivity.

    -1, if you mean 4-6 months after the creation.

    Hawt.

    I think he definitly meant 4-6 months of inactivity!
    Atleast this is the only way this suggestion would make sense to me at all o_O
    If we'll close all these Threads, spammers won't have the chance to bump a 2 year old Thread anymore. Will prevent us from further spam aswell!
