    Introductions Thread - why are threads closed off after 2 days.

    I have encouraged a number of people to join AP and post to the introductions thread. Sometimes it takes me a couple of days to find out their AP name and invariably the introductions thread they created has been closed off. Why are the introductions threads closed off so early? These threads should be open for at least a week if not a slightly more generous time for slow people like me.
    Cheers

    My photo-mojo has gone

    Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Metabones Speed Booster and Nikon 10-24mm f/3.5-4.5 - almost as insanely wicked as sin itself... but then again, the Voigtlander 10.5mm f/0.95 is kinda fun.

    We chose 3 days as an evaluation of them showed that the vast majority are not posted to after 48 hours. Nothing other than that.

    Thanks Rick, but I am really slow at getting around to these things. Surly it couldn't hurt to have a longer time as you say "the vast majority are not posted to after 48 hours". Leaving them open for a week isn't goint to hurt much then now is it?

    It's actually set at 4 days from thread creation.
    The main idea was to stop old intro threads being resurrected.

    Setting it to 7 days is probably no issue. I'll talk to Rick about it tonight

    Thanks Kym. Maybe it is just me but it seems to be closing earlier than 4 days. Possibly a glitch or my Tardus controls have become stuck.

    Cheers
