I assume that the mods can already merge multiple threads on the same topic into a single mega-thread.  The trick is to do it before the threads have too many posts so the merge retains coherence.  One problem with lots of mega-threads is that they tend to dominate the front page so other threads can end up pushed off very quickly.

Same problem with just forcing people to stick to a single big thread. It increases the load on the server generally (1 thread with 10000 posts is worse than 100 threads with 100 posts) and newcomers would have to wade through a lot of potentially irrelevant pages or risk saying something that was already answered on page 946 when they only checked 948 to 978.

It's probably better to spin off certain groups of threads to a child board when there is a consistently high number of related threads.

One problem currently is that newbies are forced to basically post everything into the newbie section and once they start, the threads tend to stick there.

Isn't that what a wiki is for? Cheesy

I thought you were in reference to Wikipedia. I'm pretty sure now that you meant Bitcoin's Wiki.

That's correct Cheesy

Threads that are over a month old should be auto-locked. Some necro-bumping seems to be happening lately.

Assholes & scammers... it's why we can't have nice things.

If we didn't have 20 people at a time making buy buy buy sell sell sell threads, we wouldn't have to have such a heavily moderated forum.  But when half of your users are trolls and scammers... wtf do you expect the place to look like?
