Continuing the discussion from Should topic threads stay open or be closed after 90 days?:
A bit off the trail of the other topic, so opening a separate discussion …
IMO, These yearly threads should be discouraged.
It is much better for discussion if each FR gets it’s own discussion thread.
Besides, by the time you are opening the “yearly FR topic” it is most likely that the dev team has already decided upon what is “on the docket” for the next year’s development. So, I feel anyone posting in those threads are basically wasting their time. So I myself avoid reading them, or posting in them. (It is just a nightmare trying to discuss multiple features in one thread.)
