    Q & A ~ Ask a question, leave an answer. NO DISCUSSIONS

    Ya'll can delete this after.. I'm just really curious.

    I'm noticing that threads get closed after a certain point. With Lisa's case threads going hot and heavy, sometimes I can find 3 new pages accumulated as I was reading through 1.

    Anyway.. so the format now is particular topics.. We have the box wine thread, the cistern thread.. theories thread... etc. So lets say someone puts a question in there.. and half the people don't get to view it until they get home from work.. there is no opportunity to respond or contribute to it because it's already locked.

    Is there a particular number of pages that threads are allowed to go to before they have to be locked? Is it because they bog down the forum or something?

    If someone has something to contribute to a locked thread, is the correct procedure to open a new thread on the same topic?

    I'm just curious as to why this system is in place. Pardon if I'm the only person here who has no idea. I'm just getting to some of these threads and it's a little bit frustrating that I can't add my

    Usually threads are closed at about 20 or so pages, as a rule.

    You can copy and paste a post from a closed thread and bring it onto a new open thread, if that helps. And then respond to it.
    Just my opinion, of course.

    I usually close them at around 1000 posts.

    I'm going to change the title of this thread so our many new members have a place to ask general questions too. Thanks c@rol for starting it!

    Thanks.

    So is it because it causes issues to the site performance?

    So it's ok to open a new thread on an already discussed topic.. unless it was locked because it's against the rules to discuss.. rumors etc?

    Normally a "Question and Answers" thread is started for members who have a question.

    It depends. Some are closed because the thread has gone so far off topic that the thread doesn't make sense as far as the Opening Post, or OP, is concerned.

    Today one was closed when a resolution to the search was reported.

    When I said 1,000 posts, I was talking about the length of an ongoing discussion. Some people's computers start to bog down when the threads get too long, so we close them and open another.

    There should always be a reason listed at the end of the old thread so you know if a new one can be started or not. Hope that makes sense!

    Question: Has the 2:30 phone call/text information been substantiated on MSM or by LE or was that just a rumor from a FB or comment section?

    It has not been substantiated whether it was a call or a text.

    It has not been substantiated at all if there was even a text or a call.

    What time did Dad leave for work?

    Did Dad come home at any time between the time he went to work, and when he came home after work at 3:30am?

    What did Mom and Dad do other than screaming Lisa's name and looking around the house for the half hour between 3:30am when Dad got home, and 4:04am when the 911 call was made?

    Has LE issued any warnings to parents in the neighborhood to watch their children, lock their doors and windows, etc?

    Note: Lisa is still not listed as kidnapped on the FBI site:

    Fox news is stating that their local affiliate did state that a 2:30am phone call did occur. But that LE has not verified it. So no we don't know for sure.
