Moderators:
When closing threads, please write a notation on the last post stating that it's being moved or for other pertinent reason to avoid confusion. When moved maybe is even good to delete the one's moved.

I think if a thread is moved it says at the top of the thread where it was moved.

Though, I agree it's nice to have it stated at the end of a thread out of convenience.

Doing a last post is a good idea, since Newflakes may not know to look at the top left for where it was moved to. But deleting is a bad idea, because they will just see it gone and not know where it went to.

why do you even close threads? some seem still good to me like more input could be added but they're already closed.

Some are closed because they were moved. Others were closed due to arguments on a string. Threads are also closed when the original poster requests it.

Most of the closed ones were moved to a different Forum.

Correct, the reasons for threads being closed I am aware of, as I moderated here for a few years now. Since there seems to be a higher demand to close threads due to new forums opening, etc, I was stating that it would be nice to write a notation for the reason it was closed and/or moved.
