It has been asked for many times, and declined.

No good would come of it. If you don't think it's worth bothering the mods for, then it's not important.

However someone has bothered the mods, and the threads were unfortunately marked as expired by another member on a wrecking spree.

Please do let us know, we would rather members retain this important facility and deal with those who abuse the trust and responsibility.

Someone expired mine too:roll:

This is feedback deb8z, move on or be constructive please.

You have a huge chip on your shoulder,someone expired my thread asking whether the site was slow,so i'm not allowed to mention it here am i not,along with the other expired threads,gawd.

Yes, I think that gari has made another very sensible suggestion. :thumbsup:

I think we can all see who the culprit today was, but it would be, generally, useful to know if the OP had expired, (having received a whole lot of useful information etc) or if someone else was responsible.

I'm guessing that this info is already there in 'mod view'.

Deb8z,

C'mon, give me a little credit and maintain your own dignity. We both know what you referred to.

Abuse of expiry/voting buttons will result in an infraction/reduced voting powers.

We can tell and act upon it. Hope that clarifies.

It is already there for the mods to see. It would not be better for us commoners to know who had expired a thread, as it would lead to even more sillyness.

It is usually quite easy to tell if a thread was expired incorrectly.

I can see that it would be a new opportunity to 'game-it' but it might also act as a deterrent. Swings and round-a-bouts.
The irritating thing about expiring is that, as sassie has pointed out quite a few times, the default can change to excluding expired, more or less randomly, so those expired threads don't show up.

Also, it isn't obvious to me quite often whether the thread ha been expired by the OP or not.

Perhaps it would be a good compromise to have an OP Expire option??

I can't see "the developer" bothering with all that for a minor annoyance.
The mods are there to deal with it, and they seem happy to do so.
