I've noticed many threads/topics that were made on the forum are very old and haven't been locked. Threads from 05' that are simple questions are being brought back up to the top with people answering the Original Poster's question. Not only are they answering it, they're answering it as if the original poster just posted it yesterday. Now I can't speak for the original poster, but I'm sure he/she doesn't need this information 7 years later...
That's a whole different story if the topic is still relevant/informative. Which could easily be made a sticky.
I just think topics that are THAT old, should be locked and left alone to drift to the bottom, where if people need it, can still search up information on it in the search bar.
If for some reason this particular topic needs to come up again, someone else can start a new thread on it, and at least there can be fresh, up-to-date information given.
Print and share with friends and family.
Compliments of allnurses.com.

- Jan 29, '12 by Joe VI totally agree.
We close older threads manually - when we run into them. We do not mass close old topics because many are still relevant today and are still growing strong.
apreciate the feedback
- Jan 29, '12 by NRSKarenRNWhen you see someone has resurected an old personal advice thread from years ago, just use the yellow report trianagle (left corner) to bring to Mod Team attention so we can review and close when indicated.
