I don't know; anybody can contribute at any time with new information. If we lock all the dead threads than people will just create new threads for new information about the same subject. In addition I see forums as a source of information so to detract attention from past threads information would be a shame.
Just my 2 cents.
It's not a big deal when it refreshes itself, but often times it will just lock up for about 1 minute and then decides to close itself and when I search for the story I was just on it's like it never existed and I am unable to find it again.
Is there something I can do to fix this?
Hmmm... Might be the way the site is designed. Auto-refreshing and non-optimization can be a pain for mobile web-browsers. I find HotHardware's mobile design to be pleasant but the site needs to be better optimized.
If it's not that, it could be the Disqus implementation they're using; I've had times where it has not loaded at all.
Did you install anything or updated your computer; if so you can probably root out the problem to that program/update messing something up.
Hmmm... Source can be a fickle beast. I see you already made a thread in the Steam community so I guess the best thing to do is wait for an answer. In the meantime I would try a system restore to see if you can go back to a time where the game wasn't broken.
This may be dead at times but it's a welcoming environment. I missed all the wonderful people here and I hope that they do more contests so they can boost this sites activity. I really missed competing for all of the prizes and being forced to come up with the best opinions; those were the best times. I shouldn't of really left this place, I missed it too much.
Look specifically at the screenshots.
I might be interested... I'll hit you up if interested.
In my opinion.
