Just curious about other people's thoughts on archiving submissions? It always annoyed me when I couldn't comment or vote on older posts on that other site..Especially three months is not a long period of time at all.

I don't like it, but it's usually the result of technical and costs restraints. Once you put a post in a read-only archived it becomes much cheaper to host.

I would rather they get deleted after 3 months. Have exceptions for specially marked posts of course.

The thing is that most of us are not going to go back and rejoin a discussion from then and most are never even going to see it again, unless some search results bring it up.
