I wonder why https://sourceforge.net/p/sevenzip/feature-requests/search/?q=%21status%3Aclosed-accepted+%26%26+%21status%3Awont-fix+%26%26+%21status%3Aclosed is so long. Don't you close tickets anymore, Igor? Does it all go into this discussion board only?
Tickets system at SourceForge didn't allow to prevent spam.
So now it's not allowed to create new tickets in 7-zip pages.
If you don't like it, please write to sourceforge and ask them:
1) improve anti-spam filters.
2) improve moderation options for tickets system. I could not find any way to set post-moderation mode for ticket creation.
My overall question was: why do all 1197 tickets still have the status "open", when I can imagine most of them are implemented by now and should be "closed"?
On the first 4 pages I see not one ticket which would be spam. I guess you're refering to discussions on a ticket, as I'm unable to create posts there. Since I as a user (and partly as developer) am used to report incidents to ticket systems for each software (as opposed to just start a discussion, because tickets have different requirements than discussion posts) I fear people might feel wasting their time creating tickets when they aren't processed.
Seems like SourceForge doesn't suit your needs. Setting up at least a BBS on your website (i.e. phpBB which is spam-proof enough [by using your own unique question & answer] so you don't need to waste your time anymore on moderating posts - I can help you with that) and maybe even a ticket system as well might be a better choice after all.
Tickets system in 7-zip is not working now, so there is no need to update all these old tickets.
Sourceforge antispam filters are bad.
But I don't want to switch to some another system now.
Forum works, so we can use it.
Should there be some rule for the topics that serve as tickets? For example, prefixing the title with "[feature request]" or "[bug]"?
