Why are the Omni* forums configured to auto-close discussions after 30 days of inactivity?
I have been participating in many Discourse forums for many years now, and I can’t recall any other that is set this way. I’m struggling to understand why it is done this way. User questions and suggestions rarely lose relevance after 30 days, and users don’t have time to watch forums every day – it’s perfectly reasonable to visit occasionally when trying to solve problems or exploring what other people. Why block people from responding to a topic if it’s relevant, even if some time has passed?
