Ditto. As a fellow staff member, I disagree with you on this subject @Scarilian.
IMHO, I don't think the 'Mod Appreciation' topic needed to be closed.
I mean, we can talk about what is, or isn't a "trend" all day. But, do we seriously need to close old topics, just because a few people decided to jump on that particular "trend's" bandwagon a bit too late?
C'mon, now. Does closing the recent Taco Appreciation topic really warrant closing all of the other older "Appreciation" topics?
We've got exceptions to the rule, that may influence some folks to revive old trends. But they are exceptions for a reason. We shouldn't close them just because of their influential nature.
If people wish to revive an old trend, we can judge it for what it's worth, and close it if appropriate.
Good, great! I'm glad.
