Whatever you're trying to do with the topics now is ham-fisted and clumsy. It's far, far worse that the occasional bad topic slipping through.
I agree with Crash. I think the current proposed topic formula should be chalked up as a failed experiment.
But being the helpful type I am, I'll propose an alternate model (nicked from what I consider the best internet discussion board out there):
Short topics, early closing and no topic ressurection.

Re: Should Moderators promote their own topics ?
Meh, so Mods get a perk in return for all their hardwork. Can't say I care.
More generally, I remain unconvinced that locking up topics in the intellectual Austwich of the New Topic Proposal forum actually helps.

Is anyone planning on looking at Straggler's Topic anytime soon? It's been languishing for days.
