Good Day Members :)

As before we ask that members close their threads when the sale/trade is completed.
BUT to make the forum more efficient we installed a mod to auto close a thread after 30 Days of no activity for the classifieds sections.

So no more necro posts and bumps :sneaky:

Forgive me if I'm being blonde, but how do I close my threads? I don't see any obvious way.

How can I "strike-through" my thread titles? So that it is more obvious that they are closed?

Thanks in advance

EDIT: I only noticed now, from the thread listings it's striked out, just in my profile when I go to posts, it's not. My bad

Hi ViVception ViVception ,
Please can you kindly check if that 30 day idle & close mod is still working.
I'm finding quite a few threads that are older that still show up as open, and asking the original poster doesn't seem to help as they have un-watched their own thread.
Quite annoying when you're searching the forums for something specific and having to trawl through people's posts who don't clean up after themselves :poop:
Thank you!

We had to get a new add-on for it. Threads will now close automatically after 30days of inactivity but ONLY in the classifieds sections.

Thank you Ageless_ZA Ageless_ZA for getting and installing the add-on

Unfortunately some people (especially newbies) are still not closing their threads. Came upon a couple of promising sounding, still open threads in the mobile phone section the past week, only to scroll down and see the poster just posting "Sold/This has been sold". Even after reply quoting them to close their threads some of them can't seem to give a damn. So bloody annoying..... :mad:

I think that the thread should be automatically closed when the itraders have been complete.

Not sure if it is possible to link the 2 but it would prove effective

Report him for being a complete useless human being :D

Yeah there are flaws, maybe just report open sold threads. Sorry for that admin o_O
