Rome wasn’t built in a day, and IT problems aren’t solved in a virtual instant.
Surely closing threads in 90 days cuts off a large amount of enquiry for people who drop into this forum only occasionally?
Many of us aren’t everyday users, tackling Shotcut issues only from time to time - but when we come across an issue in a thread that has a nuance that isn’t covered or clear, then we’re stumped.
We have to either start a new thread with, say, a duplicated title augmented by ‘Pt II’, or give up. A new thread doesn’t attract the former participants via notifications, and the second alternative is best not to contemplate.
It seems to me that the essential duplication of threads will just create a scattering of information and invite frustration under a search tool that rarely serves us well in these forums.
This 90 days policy deprecates Shotcut. Its becoming an insoluble puzzle will likely just send people away.
It is not an optimal process, I suggest.
Is there a particular reason for cutting off existing threads - because the information gets unusably out of date, or old threads attract abuse? Something else?
