Re: I've been wondering for several months
If the thread has no relevance anymore it is locked. For example a welcome thread will be locked if a user replies years later. On the other hand, if there is a major software bug for example and someone replies with a solution of a similar problem, then the thread is left. Thats the rules that the staff work to.
