Description

There is a Link "create new topic" on the page:
http://translatewiki.net/wiki/Support/Archive/2009/9
Since this is an archive page, the Link should be avoided.

Currently, it looks like there is no way to do that,
at least no response to the question regarding that at:

Sounds like a feature request that allows a page to contain threads, but replies to or edits on posts on the page should be denied, as well as creating new threads for it.

Have to say that this page was create when the 'archive thread' feature was still in existence. This has now been removed, and ''archiving'' is done by having threads that died out disappear in the pagination...

Still, being able to lock down a complete page with all the threads on it sounds like a very powerful feature.

I talked to Werdna awhile ago there was no plans for "work flow management" at that time to support archiving threads....

It's possible via the protection interface to prevent further new topics or answers, which probably should be sufficient for such cases.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
