Hey all,

I'm one of the admins on the Deadliest Fiction wiki. We have a policy regarding resurrecting, or "rezzing", old blogs. This results in a three-day ban and locking commenting in the blog. The wiki revolves around uses creating blogs and commenting on them, so this is a larger issue than on most other wikis and can disrupt other users' activities by clogging the "wiki activities" section with stuff that is no longer active. Despite our efforts to make that clear, such as having the policy written in large letters on the "community messages" part of the recent activity, this keeps happening, mostly by anons. So this leads to the question: Is there any way we can make this clearer? -LeoLab 17:58, June 3, 2012 (UTC)

Here at central, as you can see at older blogs - we use some javascript to lock blog posts that haven't been edited - you can find it on our common.js page under "lock blog comments for blogs that haven't been commented on for more than 30 days."
You can change the line
if (old > 30) {
if (old > 3) {
and update the message
This blog post hasn\'t been commented on for over 30 days. There is no need to comment.
accordingly to fit with your wiki's policies. -- RandomTime 18:43, June 3, 2012 (UTC)
