We decided that due to the fact that several topics are being discussed and several updates are posted to lock them when they are between 250 and 300 posts. Furthermore there are some threads which have a higher frequency and here we decided to renew them on a monthly basis. There are also some threads where some or one member is taking care about it.
We had some deeper discussions about it between moderators and head moderators. There are members which prefer to let it be running as long as possible but there are also members which prefer to get it locked when it is approaching a certain number of posts like it was with the old page in general. So we had to find a compromise for both groups.

Perhaps something for those who enjoy the monthly threads would be a post each month on the thread summarising the previous month's discussion.
