Minor request/issue here ...
I often see topics here in the support forums which are quite old and either have an incorrect answer, or no answer. However I often know the answer myself, but don't have anyway to reply as the topics are closed so quickly.
If possible, it would be really handy to have the ability to reply to those old topics. I understand the limits are put in place to prevent abuse, and over-bumping of topics, but it starting to become quite restrictive on provide technical help around here.
The following topic in particular just required someone to mention the the_widget() function, but instead it is a topic with an incorrect answer.
