how about when a query has been answered the OP (original poster) has the option to 'archive' the thread. this would still be accessible but would lock it and move it away from that topic to a new topic called 'archive'
this would be a first stop for information and would allow peoples questions to be answered faster due to less old topics 'hiding' them.

what do you think?

We appreciate the suggestion it has been made in the past as well. However we have chosen not to adopt that method. We prefer to leave topics open so that replies can be made if there is a better solution to the issue later on. As well as for other forum administrative reasons.

Doing a search for subject matter is the best way to find information on the forum, archived or not.

Thank you for your for your suggestion and we do welcome all suggestions. However due to forum software limitations or operational reasons some may not be able to be implemented. Do not let this dissuade you from proposing ideas or suggestions.
