There is no doubt an old thread topic can become relevant again. The question is, how much of the old info is relevant again and who will read it all? If someone reads an old thread and wants to update the topic, all they have to do is start a new thread obviously. Using a one year timeline won't lose anyone much of anything.

As for catching spammers, very few are good enough to fool regular posters for long. Trust your members.

The types of threads I'm thinking of aren't necessary those that are solely about providing the type of information which'd grow outdated. For example, we had an ex-member of the forum here who was abducted in Indonesia, and released many months (iirc well over a year) later. The news of his release was posted in the same thread as the news about his abduction, so that we had everything about the subject together in one thread.

A more common pattern is that someone posts about a specific travel plan which is very much out of the ordinary. A year or two later, someone else with a similar plan replies to the thread, asking how the original poster experienced things.

I think you need to save around $650.
