I noticed something today I’d like some clarification on.
I created an OP last week (on 8/13) that was closed by a moderator because the OP article was too old.
That is here:
It was closed because the OP article was from 8/10, making it 3 days old when the authoring guidelines state that the article is to be “published within the last 2 days”.
At the time of closure there were 58 comments.
There was a similar situation with this OP:
that was created on 7/27 with an OP article from 7/23, making the OP article 4 days old at the time.
In this instance the age of the OP article was pointed out to moderation here:
And the moderation team made the call to keep it open, “since it’s providing good conversation”.
Since the OP of mine that was closed had a similar comment count to the other one cited (…… when the amount of time it was allowed to remain open is taken into consideration) and in my view was also providing good conversation I would like some clarification as to how long an OP that uses an article that is beyond the age of the authoring guidelines will be left to stand and how many comments it needs to attract in the time given before it is given special consideration and is permitted to remain open.
Please let me know.
