Review, close or combine old cases

A suggestion. With 1064 open cases (ie a mountain for the devs) it would be great if everyone could clean up their own old posts.
If you are logged in to the foldit website on your 'My Page' there is a link çalled Cases which shows a list of all of your posts, so it is easy to find and review them.

Some posts may be able to be combined with others which are similar if they are still a problem.
If posts have been voted down they are unlikely to be actioned, your call as to what to do with them.

thanks guys - CFC, Boots, Mat747, Brick and many other active players with posts back to early 2009 - please at least close your own old bug reports if nothing else, to attempt to get to a manageable feedback list.

It looks as if the clean up has removed a few hundred cases so a good effort, would be great to clean up more 'noise' before the dev chat if possible.

the number of open feedbacks is now over 900 - please clean up and close any old cases you can and encourage your colleagues to do the same the old feedbacks are still available they are not deleted.

Sweet jeezus… but I didn't realize I had so many open feedbacks. Thanks, spmm.

I closed most of them, and bumped the rest. My apologies if it now looks like I'm monopolizing the message boards.

Same here, there were a couple of.
Some of them were not up-to-date as they were dealing with feature requests now available with Lua V2, others had contents which were mentioned in other posts, too.

At the moment, we just can marks posts as double or close them.
Maybe it would help if users are allowed to delete their posts completely (only if these posts do have no answers from others, of course) or use polling in a topic if it can be deleted.
