Continuing the discussion from Upcoming Change to Add Location:
It is, indeed, off topic, so I started this new thread in the correct category.
Many Moons Ago, the Forum Gods elected not to use the Universal Feature that automatically closes topics. Recently, the Forum Gods changed their mind and enabled this feature with a fixed (3 month) time period. Then, the Forum Users raised their pitchforks that some topics should last longer, whereupon the Forum Gods changed the time period to “3 months after the last reply.”
Topics that show no closing message were created before the Forum Gods enabled the feature.
Topics that show a fixed time (that if you watch, becomes shorter as time goes on) were created in the interregnum between feature enablement and option modification.
Topics created since the latest show “… after the last reply”.
So a thread that you see as closing automatically in “14 Days” will show “13 Days” tomorrow, and was created 3 months less 14 days ago.
