How does the archival board work? The description says "Old stuff" but I see threads and posts that were made quite recently and most of the threads there aren't locked and can be replied to. Are we supposed to move our topics to the archival board ourselves once we no longer need them or is this done by moderators/administrators?

In what situations should we lock our own thread vs. sending it to archival?

That should answer your question. The archive is there to store things. It's quite often threads that had deletion/closure requests.

I've never used it so I can't say for certain if it works or not but there is a "move topic" link on the bottom left hand side of every thread. It's next to the "lock topic" link.

Well members can move their own (!) threads. I've just tested it to be sure.
If you feel like helping moderators when 1 of your threads becomes obsolete (e.g. you're selling something; question answered) then move it.
Otherwise you should just ignore it.

I've been giving instructions for newbies to move their own threads since day one.  Smiley

There are some threads, where the OP has been edited to a single word "closed".
These definitely need to be moved to the archival board.
Otherwise, I guess you can just lock your thread and leave it.

Old threads don't need to be moved to Archival. Just lock them. Archival is meant to be used by moderators in only a few rare situations. (Though I don't mind if you move your obsolete topics there if you want to for some reason.)

Oh OK. Thanks for clearing that up. Smiley

I usually just lock any thread that I don't need anymore and leave it in the original board anyway.
