there was a consensus to lock/archive the old threads but the problem was what to do with them. that was where there was no consensus. the other issue was which threads to lock. one proposal was lock all threads with no replies for the last 30 days (since this option is available in SMF already) but 30 days seemed too short so again no consensus.
so yes the staff and admin did agree that there was a need to do something about old threads and that was to lock/archive them, kaso dun sa specifics hindi nagkaron ng consensus. and sa words lang nagkaron ng common factor dun. the actual method on doing it involves very different things. the easiest was to just lock all old threads (meaning they will still be around just locked) but that led to another problem which was how do we define old threads? it also does not address the bandwidth problem (which if people recall at that time, hindi pa natatapos ang month wala na bandwidth exceeded na ang site)
the other option was to lock and then archive para bawas bandwidth, but again may problema ulit since there are some threads na kahit luma na might be worth reading again. which gave rise to the third option, archive them to another site which people can view if they wanted to, kaso this involved a lot of work since basically its making a new separate forum just to house the old threads
