Dylan_Tons of other forums have these things. Threads are locked and put into a “classics section”
should’ve known before even posting it would get squatted without being looked into.
You can surf the forums back all the way to 1999, the only way we could implement such function would be to sort by date, which the forums already do. A new page would essentially just skip you back 1000 pages in the forums, which with a simple edit of the URL you can jump right to page 1000. You can do the same with all of he sections.
I'm saying there is 0% chance because its a feature with no use, we don't even lock threads yet and even if we did it wouldn't change anything.
The only thing that could maybe work is sorting by number of pages, because the best threads have the most pages, but we (mods) cant flip a switch to make something happen, mods don't modify features or do anything involved with development, mods don't get paid, they're volunteers.
Our devs are busy with tons of other shit right now and we have limited time with our devs as well, so a feature like this with no purpose would likely never get implemented. Hopefully that satisfies your need for explanation.
