Aloha Tim,

I'm just wondering if there is a way to archive older discussions, or maybe divide them up by date or something so they are accessible for research but not necessarily available for comment or the early part of the discussion doesn't show up on screen. It seems that if you pull up a thread that has been "hit" excessively and then leave a comment, the liklihood of receiving a response is slim. I know there are a ton of people on the board that have serious issues with research, but when someone is posting a question in the heat of the tax season, they are really hoping for an answer, and sometimes these heavily used topics discourage those answers

but we don't want to encourage people to ask the same question twice, Actionbsns, if it was adequately answered already. Better to append the related question to the same thread isn't it? That will result in more targeted hits when someone searches - they will only have to look at 5 threads instead of 25.

In some ways that's true Kevin, but for one thing the tax environment changes and information from 2005 may not be relevant to 2008. So reading through the post may waste time when time is an important factor. But a very long thread would preclude that and can become confusing. I'm thinking the data would still be available to be read, the thread would just be smaller, a little easier to absorb and probably use less bandwidth. And if the poster has a tweak to the information already provided, there may be a better chance of getting an answer.
