As I was editing my last post in the "Distributed Computing" thread, something occurred to me.
I was editing the thread, because I had the last reply and couldn't reply a second time. I realized that the people trying to help (Guru, Merc, Big G) wouldn't be able to see it if they have their preferences as "Show new only" and marked the forum read.
Could it be possible to have a post edited after a set amount of time be marked as New again? I do understand that there could be some problems if people take advantage of this, but I am just throwing it out there anyway.
Also, I didn't seem to have the spell checker available when trying to edit.
If the only thing this does, at least those guys can check my post and try to help further.

I'm not sure how difficult it would be to put in a code to automatically lock threads after a week of inactivity, but it sounds like a feasible idea to try if you can do it. The other option is the rather unpleasant notion of doing it manually.
