I have a question to the more experienced forum users here. When seeing this topic I thought that it would be OK to close it as the problem is now solved. That’s at least what I would do on GitLab. On the forum, however, we never closed any topic if I remember correctly. Therefore, closing this topic would be kind of inconsistent with our former behavior.
Should we automatically close topics? Arguments in favor of automatically closing topics are for example that old topics that are somehow related to a new post but not really are not spammed but people have to open a new one.
Arguments contra that behavior are topics like F-Droid Contributor Meeting, New UI / UX of F-Droid app and our Maintenance Log that should be kept open for more time. Even if topic in general are automatically closed, I think we can choose single topics to not be affected by this.
The question now is: Should we automatically close topics? When should we close topics? I hope to have some responses of more experienced people. Thank you a lot!
