What is the purpose from closing topics?

I always see in freeCodeCamp forum closing icon in many topics which is done by some freeCodeCamp forum leaders . But Why they are closing topics? What is the purpose from doing that?

Hello there,

Most topics are closed, because they are old, and we want to encourage new conversation. Other topics are closed, because the conversation has run its course - is no longer fruitful.

Largely, we encourage Campers to open new topics on their own issues, because, whilst it might help to read other posts for a solution, not every problem is exactly the same, and technology moves at such a fast pace that a solution one year might not be correct the next - especially true for freeCodeCamp, as the curriculum is continually worked on, and updated.

Hope this helps.

Also, we’ve found that old topics become targets for spambots.
