Auto-lock on old threads...?

    Hello,When I joined this (and also other online forums) we're usually told don't keep starting new threads on the same topic, see if there was one done previously.However, having just seen a new member be told by a moderator not to add to a thread that's over 3 months old (admittedly, this particular one was 7 years old), it made me wonder as this is the rule, is there not a way to auto-lock old threads? That way it would stop this happening.Can you provide a link to a YouTube video on UKBF without the video embedding?
    Changing your user name on UKBF is possible, but we mere mods do not have the necessary power or permissions.Plenty of other forums have systems like this in place which automatically locks and archives very old threads, and doing them all at once for the first time automatically (which I presume would involve a MySQL database run) would take minutes without any downtime

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you!!

    I did not find the right solution from the Internet.
