The limit is simply this year minus 20 years.

So, the deadline is now 1998?

Instead of simply locking these spam "What If" threads, it would be great if you removed them. Close to 75% of the front page is just spam, and I doubt most people want to click through pages of What Ifs just to find a decent read.

Could the moderators please explain why a post is removed when they lock it? Instead of simply saying, "This thread violates the guidelines", you could say, "The guidelines require X, and this thread does not have X."
