We are about to switch to a new forum software. Until then we have removed the registration on this forum.
I have noticed that the forum has many questions that have simply been forgotten by the person who asked it in the first place. One more thing is that even after my(or anyone else) replying, the thread seems to still remain dead. And also, the number of unanswered questions is so many, that I very much doubt if most of them will ever get an answer.
Should there be a certain time limit after which a question is automatically closed if it does not attract any attention, maybe with request to the one who asked to ask it again? Just wanted to know everyone's general opinion and if anyone knows why that happens.
