Why are all these threads locked?

What exactly is the thread policy in this section?

I am in the process of redesigning my TEC/Peltier chilled water cooling and was considering posting it in here, but not if it is going to be immediately closed, it's just not worth the trouble to post the build?

They get auto locked after a period of time of inactivity.If you need to comment on something in a locked thread start a new one and link to whatever passage/post you think pertains to what you're asking.As long as the thread stays active it will be open.

Locked threads. My ideas, for what its worth.

I think locking these threads because of inactivity could have an unintended consequence of losing out on newcomer responses, and subsequently new interested parties that will help build this site. I think it is kind of like closing your restaurant or auto parts store early because it is not busy. I see that a thread can be reopened by request, but nobody's going to wait in the parking lot while the restaurant owner comes back to open up. I've been around long enough to know that is a good way to go out of business. 16,000 views in 1.5 years on a locked thread makes me wonder how many comments or ideas were lost forever. That being said, maybe there is a good reason to lock the threads. Maybe it helps the moderator's job more manageable.

I think more like the information contained is out of date.You can start a new thread a and link the old one for reference.Most of the people that posted in the old threads have moved on to other things so aren't likely to be of much help.Mr Scott is one who keeps up on older hardware and is a wealth of info on legacy hardware but he is is the exception.

Makes sense. Just out of curiosity, what does locking the thread help? Not trying to be a problem, just curious.

I think it had more to do with forum etiquette than anything as it was considered bad form to "necro" a thread that hadn't been active in a long time for some reason not sure I understand it.
