    Default Threads Becoming Other Threads?
    Okay, I honestly have no idea if it's just me or not but I've been noticing it a lot lately. Someone will make a thread titled unlock iPhone 3GS or something and other people will just come and post a help topic in the thread. I saw one person the other day that bumped an almost 2 year old topic with a question. It seems that threads are becoming new threads, anyone agree?

    Meh. It happens. Occasionally you'll see in spurts random bumps on very old threads.

    Gets very annoying at times. Then other people have to bump their threads and so on.

    Unfortunately it's unpreventable. Sometimes you do a google search MMi topics will show up, whether they are old or not. Then people think oh hey it has the words "how to unlock my iPhone" in it so I'll just ask here rather than starting a new thread. Then it gets annoying when people start new threads over the same topic over and over. It's a vicious cycle. Part of the forum life lol.

    Yah. Too bad there's no way to like make it archive the thread after a certain amount of time so it can't be replied to... Or is there? Lol.

    Nah, we don't want to start locking threads. We just have to deal with it

    Hm yeah this has been discussed before. I'm sure there's a reason why nothing has been done. It doesn't happen frequent enough really. Just seems like it.

    btw,
    bumping a 2 month old thread, just to remind someone that a thread is 2 months old,
    is almost as annoying as posting about it in this thread.
