What I proposed would just stop people from bumping old threads with stupid posts.
If a thread doesn't get any new replies for X months (every board should have different settings) then the thread is ''archived'' and all new replies in that thread will be posted with an automatic sage.
That's a permasage. It is normally applied to "low-quality-yet-not-spam" threads.
It stops people from necroposting, but it also kills the thread faster.
Though I think the thread is already dead if it hasn't got any new replies for months...
I understand what you're saying now. If it was me I would lock the thread after so many weeks/months of the thread's creation date to archive it but make it read-only so people can still enjoy it if it has good content and shitposters can't ruin it.
What? There's nothing to permasage. Wouldn't do any good.
We've been saying the same things for ages and ages. Everybody's sick of it.
What is "permasage"? I tried looking it up online but found no clear definition.
The traditional method of killing off irredeemably bad threads on textboards, since closing and deleting threads entirely is viewed as tyrannical censorship. Permasaging instead makes it so new replies can't bump the thread on the list, even if the replier doesn't sage their own post.
