Please accept my sincere apologies if what I am about to say is already being done or has been dismissed before as being completely useless, but…
… There are a good many threads here covering a multitude of issues. Clearly, threads cannot run forever. However, in terms of their conclusion, would it not be beneficial to all if Steinberg adopted a formal policy, applicable to the termination of all (relevant) threads?
For example, an appropriate member of staff would review the content of a thread and then provide a concluding post to inform the user base of the salient points from a Cubase development standpoint (or similar).
Just a thought.
