An instructor wants to limit discussion forum activity after a specific date -- without making the forum disappear completely. The standard way to do this is to lock all existing threads and prevent new ones. That tedious activity could be avoided by having an option to auto-lock the forum at some future date. This could be similar to the way the options on a test can be set to prevent students from starting attempts after the Due Date. The main idea is that the forum would remain open for reading, so students could see their previous work, but no more messages could be added.
