    Responding to an Older Posting....Notification

    I was just trying to add a posting to an older subject thread I had started. I took the time to compose the posting, then hit submit....WOW, I get a message that you can not respond to that subject thread as it is 114 days old.

    It sure would have been nice to have the forum tell me that information BEFORE I took the time to respond?? Couldn't that info have been displayed as soon as I made the attempt to respond, rather than after I went thru the composition of the response??

    That is the way the forum software works, we have no control over it (other than specifying the expiration interval).
