If I am the OP and I ask that a thread be closed, what happens then? Does the administrator take my request under advisement or is he/she obligated to close the thread?

How does that work?

I don't know that there is an "official" policy on closing threads.

However, as a Moderator, I would tend to honor the OP's request, unless there was valuable information and discussion ongoing about the topic. I would not make a decision based solely on the interests of the OP.

Others might act differently. There is a lot of latitude given to the Moderators.

Actually I was just wondering if PatH wanted, could she stop that runaway thread over in the lounge.

Another question, is it ok to use color? I was tempted to use it from the new BBS started but no one else was using it so I refrained. Today I saw Fern use it in a post so I followed suit.

Just a personal view on the question of using colour. I find the black text much easier to read. The occasional use of colour as emphasis is OK. I'm far more interested in content than design. As I already said, just a personal view.

I also agree.
