Or at least autoclosed.

I have to admit that I don;t like that rule. I know in all of the "how to get help" stickies, searching is encouraged and well you know my opinion on the matter. It's kind of backwards to suggest to folks to search forst and then ignore what they find. I would rather have them ask a question if they don;t understand in the thread that they find instead of start a new thread, ask a question and the rest of us have no clue as to what they're referencing because they (of course) don't link to the past thread.

I agree. Its hard to help answer something if they don't say "hey i have a question about this that i found here". Also asking in the thread they found it in to clarify would be much better, but I do see that alot of the threads are either outdated, inactive or just no longer valid due to game changes. So I can see doing it both ways I guess.
