Disable comments on posts/ideas older than x number of years

Community Forums
On our radar

To prevent very old posts/ideas, say older than 1 or 2 years, being bumped to the top of the recent list, prevent commenting on these, for example.

The content may still be relevant though, so you can reference the post/idea in a new one thus linking back to the old post/idea.

Also, when viewing the initial post/idea, perhaps show any referencing posts/ideas so that users can navigate to the latest conversation around it.

Here posts get out of board rapidly let's say 3 days and it becomes difficult for you to search post which you have posted/commented (unless you go to the inbox) 3 days before.

So I would recommend if post is 6 months older, disable comments.

nah, 2 years is fine to start with...

I agree with J.

2 years is a good measure, as people are still using old versions and thus they can keep benefiting from old posts.

Hi team,

sorry for not being able to get back to you earlier and update this idea.

Yes, this is a great idea and we will be implementing it during Q2. Hope it works for you.
