I would like to leave this up for discussion here but wanted to throw in my .02. We have a tendency to harbor long running threads on a particular topic and I get the idea behind it, especially considering a lot of us come from MR where they really push that sort of thing. On a really huge site with over a million users it's also a great way to keep things managed.

On the flip side, on a smaller site like ours it tends to silo things and instead of growing a forum, it's really just growing a single thread. I would just like to suggest that as we grow, new topics will help as well as continuing with existing threads. Just a humble request to keep that in mind. :)

I would agree. I guess itā€™s an old habit of trying to post something in an existing relevant thread. It definitely seems to be what is encouraged on larger forums. But that can definitely be relaxed on a smaller one.
