Only completely ignorant users keep posting this question. They disregard clear statements in forum rules and forum rules themselves. This question is already explained in the FAQ, are searchable on these forums, but we, ScummVM developers are slaves in their eyes and should answer same questions over and over again like brainless parrots. :evil:

It's very annoying, I know ... maybe the mods could start deleting these posts on sight. I know it's still extra work for you all.

I don't think this would be fair, because it does not honor users helping users, which is often the case and has been the case in this thread also.

But it's pure lazyness to not a) read the forum rules and b) search the previous posts.

Or little experience with Internet forums....

Anyhow, I clearly can remeber a thread being closed to which I wanted to reply just one minute later. And it was closed because it was out of the devs scope. It is OK by me if the devs don't answer every single thread, eg. when it's out of ScummVM's scope.

But still, users may want to help each other and they have no other way then the forum here.

Yes but the forum rules suggest lurking a little before posting and if you're a lurker you'll read most of the posts.

I agree with this but it just seems to generate more and more threads that digress into discussions like this one!

Maybe it would be an idea to create a "Duplicate Threads" subforum ("Trashcan" is too close to "Junkyard"), threads that disregard forum rules and/or the FAQ could be moved there, locked, with a "read the FAQ (blah)"-like comment. That'd be better than just deleting a thread because it makes it comprehensible for the common user (noob) why his question wasn't answered. Spares us from all the "I wrote about this before, but noone answered and my post and it vanished somehow and I wanna know and please answer immediately!!11!1".

Regards,

Why would you need to lock a topic that no-one is answering to?

So it suddenly doesn't reappear when someone does reply to it. If it's locked it will just filter further down the list of topics, I think.
