for example someone can do a search for "closed threads deleted" and this thread will be brought up long after you close it and get the answer they were looking for

Closed threads are when the thread is closed to replies.

Usually threads are deleted when it breaks the rules, so others cannot view it.

That way, there aren't two threads on the same page about the exact same thing. I've actually been helped by that method. I knew an old thread had the answer I was looking for, but I couldn't remember the name of the thread or what the answer was. I was able to look through old threads and find the answer.
(Also, before you push the reply button to a thread, maybe you could highlight the text, and right click and push "copy". That would help you some on that problem...that way if you get logged out right before you push the reply button, it won't be all gone.

OMgosh I never thought of all of this!

I was just frustrated because I found it "cluttered" the forums with Closed Threads.

I did not see the use in them that I now see. Thank you to all!

Default Re: Do closed threads get deleted?

I have been looking through closed threads today because I'm new here and I had some questions but rather than be redundant I thought I'd look and see if the questions were already answered and sure enough many of them were answered a long time ago. I'm glad the threads aren't deleted for this reason, but I know what you mean about replying to them by accident and wasting time. I guess just check on the icon before opening the thread if you plan to post.

After 2 weeks of inactivity on a thread, the system itself will close the thread.
Closed threads will remain a part of the forum so that you can go back and read them. (I love a story I wrote for Christmas, so I can go searching for it and find it to read it again).

Rockermom, even before you open a thread, before you click on the title, you can see if it's a closed thread. To the left of the title is a small yellow folder symbol. Click the image to open in full size. A closed thread has an orange lock on the folder Click the image to open in full size. Once you open the thread, it will say CLOSED in the upper left corner at the top of the first post, if the thread is closed.

In addition to reading the first post, it's a good idea to read all the posts to the end. Most threads are fairly short and this is doable. This will avoid duplicate posts.

In addition, closed threads can be re-opened, just ask!

Default Re: Do closed threads get deleted?

If a thread breaks the rules, it will be closed and the creator of that thread will most likely be notified. Answering your question in your title: No, not all closed threads get deleted. Only if your thread is very inappropriate or you request it be deleted, that's when it gets deleted; otherwise it's just closed. I see where you're coming from; you find a post you really want to help on or post on, but then you find out it's closed. What a horrible feeling, right?! But even before you click on that thread, you'll see a little 'Locked' symbol so you know that nobody can post on it anymore, may it be that the thread is answered, or some other reason. But they are still there, just if somebody wants to read it.

Closed threads are kept because they have no reason to be deleted. Deleted thread are either deleted because they broke the rules and such, or I think if the thread owner asked staff to delete it.

Default Re: Do closed threads get deleted?

My problem with the threads are the fact that while reading you have some thoughts and hit the REPLY button and start typing your response. When you hit SUBMIT it seems like it takes forever, then finally you see it, the dreadful: THIS THREAD IS CLOSED.

My question is: Why is the REPLY button available if the thread is closed??
