Why are threads being locked after 12 months?

I just search for a post by another member and even though it's only 15 months old, it's locked.

Everyone gets frustrated when someone resurrects a thread from 10 or so years ago. But 1 year?

One year is too long. Start a new thread and reference the old one.

Not too long ago I requested a thread already closed, to be reopened for posting a specific request to a the main contributor there.

Very satisfactory. Thanks JimB
