Why are some messageboard discussions closed?
Messageboard discussions are set to close automatically after a period of time. This is to help prevent spamming. Discussions may be closed early if they have become off topic, out of date, or if the number of messages is so high that the discussion has become unmanageable. They may be closed if the discussion as a whole is found to break the House Rules. If the first message of a discussion is found to break the House Rules the discussion will automatically be closed to further messages.
