    With the new format, it is more difficult to see how many pages there are to a given thread. So, I am making explicit the practice I've instituted over the last few months.

    Instead of just page counts, I am now looking at reply counts. When a thread gets to around 125+ replies, it becomes a cadidate for closure.

    An update:

    For the last six months or so, with the Admin Teams concurrence, I have closed threads when they reach 135 or so posts. Mind you, I am not all that efficient. So, if I go to Costco or Sunday Services, some threads grow like Topsy before I can post the Six Hour Warning.

    I believe six hours is enough time for folks to post their finishing thoughts. However, I understand there are still points to be discussed. So, folks are free to start a new thread dealing with those points. Unless, the thread as been closed with prejudice.
