    I like to look at closed topics to see examples of what I can't talk about. Maybe we could add a sub catergory to every section called Trash Bin to keep closed topics in for postierty (Or archiving to be more exact). It could help the new members to well, do what I do (Look at closed topics to see what we shoulden't talk about).

    If we do this, we could mention it in the forum rules.

    I don't think there was a case when a topic was closed because of a reason other to the reasons in the guidelines ;) Just read the guidelines :cool:

    Yep.
    It's quite rare for topics to be closed really. If they're closed, they're still in the relative section, so if someone comes along 5 minutes later wanting to post about the same thing, they can see a topic already exists and has been closed.

    Yup, think its not a good thing. Excessive waste of DB entries, extra load on the server, and just makes the board more bloat.

    In the rare occcasion that an entire thread is deleted there must have been a good reason for it.
