Sorry to get in the middle of it all, but when someone ressurects an older thread, Eskaver closes it. It is not cool. If the person is ressurecting the thread, they are interested in it, so why does the thread need to be closed?
I assume Esk feels if someone wants to discuss what was in the topic of a long dead thread, they can just start a new thread with that topic. I can make arguments for and against why that is a good/bad idea. I do have to say when people resurrect a long dead thread, even if Esk doesn't close it, it doesn't seem to get much interest from other people.
