I was wondering what a sensible policy would be regarding Job postings. Usually, job postings have a limited time they stay valid. Alexandra recently added a comment to http://developer.qt.nokia.com/forums/viewthread/3527/ to tell about the closing of one. However, I find that not a good way to deal with this, as it just puts this posting at the top of the list again. Only on opening it, you notice that it has in fact expired.
Perhaps, we should do two things:
- Add to the rules a requirement to indicate when the posting expires
- Add an [Expired] tag in the title to mark the expired postings
It would be nicer if such a thing could work automatically, but I don't know if the forum software would support such options. Alternatively, we could simply deleted expired postings completely. Or do we think there is value in keeping them around?
