    Is it possible (in BHW 2.0) to have a confirmation message show if a user is trying to reply on a thread from years ago that hasn't had a reply in 6+ months, before the post goes through? It might help prevent some accidental gravedigging and bringing old, outdated information to the top of the forum.

    Just a thought! And the 6 months is arbitrary, maybe a year, two years, whatever.

    I apologize if this has been brought up before, I didn't see it when I was looking through - if it has, please feel free to lock and/or delete.

    You might have something there, @FakeJimmyFallon.

    We've talked about auto closing some threads after a certain time period but I don't think we have talked about having threads with no activity for X amount of time go into a moderation queue.

    I'll link your thread here in the Mod forum where that was being discussed.

    Lol FakeJimmyFallon, love it! And awesome, yeah anything to help prevent super old threads from getting dug up (without a good reason) would be great if doable. Thanks for taking it into consideration!

    Thanks for the idea; I think it is quite solid and would not have thought of that myself.

    Guys like you are what makes the world go 'round and helps the health of the forum.

    @WizGizmo will be flying out to Texas to buy you beers and chicken wings for the suggestion.

    I appreciate the kind words, happy to help out when I get any (half decent) ideas since I've considered BHW a second home for many years now.

    And haha deal, I'm holding @WizGizmo to it!
