Pruning topics (archiving/read only)

Old topics never die, they just get archived. Inactive topics can be “frozen” so no new posts can be added, and they can also be archived, which means they will no longer show up on the active topic lists. They can be brought back or “unarchived” and “thawed” as well. By keeping inactive topics pruned, conferences can focus on the active topics and kept robust.
