Why are threads locked down so soon?
I found this place through a search engine, looking for answers to some problems. I see threads without any answers locked down!? Why not just delete them? They serve absolutely no purpose in the future. If someone sees the thread in the future and wants to post the answers for others with that question, they can't. Even better, the original poster can't even post the solution they eventually found.
The worth in a forum like this is the knowledge that gets built up by the answers that are given... I don't see the value in locking down a thread just because it's a hard question that takes time for someone with the experience to answer!
This concept really leaves me with no desire to *contribute*.
