Sorry if this has been asked before, but why do some contributor posts on the front page get their comments closed, and not others?
As far as I can tell it doesn't seem to have anything to do with the age of the post, or the amount of comments posted. Anyone know? (and I know this is going to be super basic and obvious and when I hear it I'm going to say 'Duh!'
Actually, I thought it was the age of the post. In wordpress you can set it to automatically close commenting after a certain period of time - a few weeks usually. I notice that all the posts from April are closed, but the ones from May are still open.
I think it's to do with the challenge dates rather than the dates posted....I might be wrong, but I think only the current challenge and previous one remain open.
So there might be some contributor posts on the front page that relate to challenges closed before these two that therefore can't be commented on next to posts from the two most recent challenges that are still open.....I think that's how it works, possibly....don't quote me :)
