Possible, I think. Doesn't seem worth doing. Having gold just mean > 1 year sub and no extra features is simpler. It's already not clear to people who has power to close/re-open topics (I sometimes get subscribers asking me to do it and I tell them they can do it themselves). Adding this gold thing further complicates that. Re-opening another person's topics seems unusual and rare. I've almost never been asked to do that from what I recall. And, I suspect there are cases where I would have said "no". e.g. a creator closes their own after taking crap from people. Now, people could re-open and keep piling on the crap? Also, any gold would have this power, thus could get in close/re-open back-and-forth wars. Some topics can't be re-opened (if they are "archived"), to further complicate this. People can just pm me to ask in odd cases. That seems best.
Yeah, I didn't even know I could re-open my own topic until I read your above post. From there it took me a while to find the link to click to let me do it. Is it possible to add something to the "This Topic is Closed" message for subscribers? Maybe like a "Click here to reply and reopen it" or something like that?
Thanks for that and for the free trial sub time. I didn't know subscribers had that option, not officially anyway. I heard they could do it but I checked the subscriber benefits and it wasn't listed, so I thought I just got it wrong. I'll sub in the future so I won't bother you with this again.
