    Nobody "owns" a thread as far as we are concerned. All threads, once made, are open for all to post in, and should remain so unless breaking forum rules or clearly heading that way.

    So not only can members not close their "own" threads, but we also have a rule that we do not close threads or posts on request. That is not to say we never will, but there has to be good reason given before we do so.
    Agreed and also think of what would often happen: player A starts a thread and doesnít like the discussion so closes the thread, causing one of the others in the discussion to start a new thread with a link back to the old to continue the discussion and now we have two threads instead of one and Player A didnít get to stop the discussion in the end.

    Contact SC here. Click here for how trophies are calculated. Click here to see how war map placement of max halls is determined. An idea to improve legends here. I wish max players had a separate loot bank as described here. Caution, I often discuss for the sake of discussion and enjoy having my opinion challenged (or approved of) even when I care little about the actual issue. My balance wish: get rid of tornado trap, make it a decoration.

    Agreed. The forum is for community discussions, not direct one-on-one question and answers. Many good thoughts, ideas, and solutions have been offered long after the original poster got their fill of the thread.
