I posted this in another thread that was started about locked threads in the Urgent section, but then realized that it may not get noticed there since the thread seemed to have run its course. So, here goes...

For example, suppose I post that "urgent female" in Timbuktu is safe and sound and on her way to a foster home. IMO, especially if it has been a lengthy process, it would be better to lock the thread say 12 or 24 hours after it has been posted that she is safe than to keep it open for unlimited replies of, "Good save," "That's wonderful," "I'm so glad she's safe," etc., etc.
Please understand, I am NOT in any way, shape, or form knocking the folks who are excited about a save or who have worked hard to bring it about. I have been concerned at times that continuing to bump the saved dogs back up by posting comments causes other dogs in urgent situations to get pushed down the list more quickly.
