Would mentor of the month be that different from Member of the Month?a way to say a big Thank You by nominating our favorites.
I think so. THere are a lot of members who help my saying hi, welcoming, and participating. However, my own experience there are a very few who rise so far beyond that sending long responses with detailed instructions around specific problems. But yes, if this is the right forum I'll start to nominate people there - and you would be on my list @InTheShed; you are one of those people for me!Would mentor of the month be that different from Member of the Month?

i understand why its there, i just don't understand why they are so outdated threads. Even if i got to a fresh new thread, the similar threads are still outdated.
it's just a filter adjustment. i don't think it has to do anything with being advanced. This website is actually very advanced if you look at the toolbars, page speed, load time and the entire structure of the siteThe add-on probably isn't advanced enough to provide for different age ranges for threads from different sections of the forum. Or else there is, but the Exclude Days setting is configured to 420,420 (lol).
Even a grow journal that was completed by someone years ago might have information that is new to someone, though. Most old grow journal threads can still be posted in (assuming it wasn't sponsored by a former advertiser), and necroposting is allowed here. In other words, if someone has a question or comment about something they read in an old thread, they can post it, and there will be a reasonable likelihood that a member will respond (even if the person who created the thread is long gone).
Speaking of "similar threads" foibles... I just moved the mouse cursor below this message reply box and the pop-up thread summary informs me that "Forum Runner is an Android/iPhone/iPod Touch/iPad App that allows you to browse this forum using a native client." Responses to that old thread might cause more confusion than a few new posts in an old journal .

lol, i don't seem to bring my point across properly and i totally do not mind the old threads. lol, i just stopped carrying about the similar threadsLimited algorithms aside, I’d like to add that old isn’t necessarily outdated
Much of my time on 420 over the last few years has been spent reading the journal archives. Some of the best things I’ve discovered around here have been in old threads and journals from long before I was here. It can aslo be a nice way of getting to know people, or plants, or both.
