    A mod queue is basically putting a play on words for forum constipation. Members and complainers may think they have it bad now, so can the staff and the older member base, but when some of those members turn into whiners and the complainers double and the threads with no posts become closed; you'll just have a lot of members trying to post and wondering they can't instantly do so. Then mods have have to approve more posts/threads, and misdirected PMs towards anyone with a different colored name (subs, winners, legends, admins, etc). Even though dead links are annoying the posts a year or even more after are relevant. Closing them all is a quick way to create more duplicate threads and more work if used with the mod queue. There isn't really a quick way to deal with everything at once, but taking the time to create an Archive section for each release might be a good idea in the long run albeit slow at first.
    I don't know or care about the difference between ignorance and apathy.

    WHAT if what they are wanting to post is relevant to the thread...and hasn't been discussed yet....would be frustrating for a possible new member of our society to not be able to post and simply walk away from RZ....we could inadvertently lose a possible major contributor this way.

    OR...they will simply create a new thread thats pretty much the same as the old one simply to ask a question or maybe fix an issue thats never been fixed...
    I agree with you. I make use of this method often for old threads in the Habbo section since I use old resources like Phoenix, uberCMS, etc. I post to hopefully find someone with the released file since it's download link has gone down. Another example is the help section, I'll find the same problem as mine and instead of opening a new thread, sometimes I'll bump the old one in hopes of someone knowing the problem or maybe the thread creator found a resolution and may share after all that time.

    It's just annoying when people freak out after bumping an old thread and flame you when you have a perfectly on topic post.

    Posted this same idea for the habbo section before reading this http://forum.ragezone.com/f600/habbo-section-huge-renovation-1008248/

    Great minds think alike
