Summary feature is cool - how do we archive

Thanks David,

Automated archiving is better. I was under the impression that once the prompt for summarising appears that users were required to take a decision about whether to archive or not and do this manually.

Automated archiving after another 14 days is really COOL.

I can hardly remember life before LQT and these days when I visit a MW installation without LQT I experience withdrawal symptoms :-).

A cool feature indeed!

Would it make sense to have the box requesting a summary (and archive) to appear only if the length of the discussion is more than x characters?

and to have an option to remove the box - e.g. if the discussion is expected to take a long time, or if the discussion should remain visible indefinitely? - Perhaps an "extend" button which will give it another 14 days?

(The box implies the discussion is dead - sometimes I start a discussion but do not invite everyone all at once within two weeks - and would prefer the box not to appear.).

Alternatively, just include two unobtrusive links on all discussions: "extend" and "summarise and archive" ?? - Ktucker 12:08, 27 November 2007 (CET)
