re the Closed Forums? For three years I've had to look at 'Will this forum close from 5pm last post by Smiffy Bee'
It annoys me. Get rid of it from my sight please.
It's a prize for posting the last comment in an archived thread. Wars have been fought over similar honours. Someone on the world cup forum will achieve similar status soon and smiffy will be a forgotten relic cast into the dark interweb void.
I trust this helps.
I also like that the final post was about France rather than England, that could have been really irritating.
