We should lock these threads after say 3 weeks or so...

Yes I see other forums locking threads if there's been no replies after x number of days/weeks/months. Good idea :)

 

I think we ought to agree a cut off period?

An auto ban is a bit harsh, but the ide of auto locking the thread is ok as long as the OP can re-open it if they have yet to find someone.

3 weeks gets my vote.

 

Do you think 3 weeks is long enough? Sitepoint trigger theirs at 3 months...
