The Geocaching Maine Advisory Board has recently been discussing moderation of forum threads, particularly the closing of threads. In order to give more control to the members, the opening poster of a forum thread may now close it if they feel it is necessary.

In order to close a thread you have started, click on the Thread Tools link at the top of your first post and select the Close Thread radio button and then click the Perform Action button.

Threads should only be closed in situations in which the opening poster cannot redirect the postings back on topic or feels the thread has served it's intended purpose or usefulness. Please do not abuse this feature. If its use is abused, this feature will have to be removed.
