I recently became more active in some Facebook groups - one is a watch group, and the other is for people with sleep apnea. One thing I noticed there is that people who post a new topic/thread can turn off commenting at any point, thus closing the thread. On my sites, the rule has always been that the topic starter doesn't own a thread and cannot close it. On the other hand, I'm sure Facebook put some thought into why they do things this way, and I can see how it would cut down on the work for our moderators if people can close their own threads when they go south. Does anyone here have their forum set up for topic starters to close their own threads? Or would anyone consider it?
