I'm wondering what the thinking is behind automatically closing threads on this forum after 5 days. I appreciate that forum administrators perhaps don't want us to reopen discussions that are months or even years old, but 5 days does feel an incredibly short period of time to me.
Personally I don't know anyone who can develop a site within that short time-frame without hitting at least one or two technical challenges that may require assistance or feedback from the wider community. For example, I've been having to answer questions on a thread that I created a week or so ago, simply to keep it open and unlocked.
Surely 30 or 60 days is more realistic? That would enable new and existing forum members sufficient time to assist one another, without stressing over whether their topic thread is just about to auto close or not.
I'd be interested to hear other members views on this.
