As the title says: if somebody posts a topic, they should be able to close it when they think they’re done with it, and likewise they should be able to reopen it when it turns out they’re not. Of course forum moderators should be able to override this if the need arises.
It’s great that @bouteloua is able to reopen a large number of her own feature requests. I would like to be able to do this for my own feature request that was closed by @tiwane too soon. As it is, my only options seem to be to post a new thread, which I guess I’m doing here, or @mentioning forum moderators, which I guess I did as well, but am not too eager to do. All this would be unnecessary if I could have closed and reopened my thread myself.
