Forum for all the suggestions that have 1. nothing to do with our two websites (Dosgames.com/ DosGamesArchive) and 2. are not bug reports.

Would you rather have five threads on one subject, or one thread covering a few months on one subject? Most would agree they'd rather have the latter. If we locked the topics, that wouldn't be possible.

What about stuff like "Introduce Yourself"- Sometimes no-one new joins for 1-2 weeks, when at least 10 other topics have been made- the threads would be moved and lock, and people wont be able to introduce themselves.

By the way, what are 'completed' threads?

Your guess is as good as mine... this is an open, constantly changing forum so no thread is "completed" until it is locked or the forum is closed.

In "Finding Old Games," it could be considered "completed" once the initial question was answered, probly.

Not at all, Goat. The original poster may have additional comments or a new one may like a add some.

HEY!!!

I agree with DA_goat
I think that would be the most sutible idea so people dont go into that thread and not know if it isnt completed

1. It wouldn't necessarily be completed. There are always additional things to be said or questions to be asked.

2. I think this has been debated long enough, further discussion is pointless. If you have a really good point to add to it, PM me and I'll consider reopening it but for the time being, this thread is locked.
