Turn off question expiration

Asked by poy


i seem to remember an option in the GUI of a few months ago where i could turn off the 15-day expiration of unanswered questions, am i right? i have never had to use it before so i'm not really sure...

in any case, now that the details for configuring answers have their own edit page, there isn't any check-box in there to turn that expiration off.
i would like to have it off in one of my projects that has low activity and where i don't want to encumber myself with turning valid questions into bug reports; is it possible?

Expiration cannot be configured. Unattended questions are expired automatically. You can prevent questions from expiring by assigning them or by keeping the conversation alive by adding a comment to the question.

ok, i was about to turn this into a request but i see there's already bug 275728 about this, didn't notice it before. apparently that option i was vaguely remembering is to disable bug expiration.
