Seriously though.

Random people come to forums, bumps topics all the while trying to seek attention but all they do is set themselves up as flame bait.

Discuss reasoning for your vote!

Im guessing 3-4 months in a highly populated topic such as one with lots of user replying.
And 1-2 months for a topic with a few posts that random scrubs are just like zomg post count +1 i blows in .

Archive requires more energy. Just lock the topics so they cannot be bumped but if someone has similar ideas or opinions they could LINK to original thread and just make a new one.

i agree that locking is a good idea, because as when you are new, you end up looking through the topics and think i want to reply to that, many people don't look at that little date and just do it, many thinking that they have done nothing ennoying.
