  1. Why is a thread closed, can it be open? if not why not, and will it be open ata future date. An explination as to why a thread is closed would be nice.
    I am a new member and don't understand this. Thank you.

    Hi vvkrolc.Welcome to Techspot.

    A thread is closed if -

    1) Posters request information about anything illegal,cracked or hacked.

    2) Posters start flaming and abusing each other.Politics,religion,or just about anything :)

    3) It gets so long that people start repeating previous posts,without adding any new information.

    There is no reason to re-open them,because any member can always start

    a new thread,as long as the above rules are observed.

    Nice description Peddant.

    I will add one more thought... Threads are closed by Moderators (like myself) who oversee all the discussion boards in this forum called TechSpot. If you have any questions/problems/concerns please speak up we will do our best to help you!
