Idea to stop from Digging up old threads.

I have noticed recently that there have been threads in different forums that have been posted on that the topic is very old. I think sometimes this is due to people not knowing the date on the thread. I was visiting another forum and began to post in a reply in a thread when I noticed above the reply box it said something to the effect of "this thread is more than one month old. You might consider creating a new thread." I think this would be an effective way of stopping people from digging up ancient threads. Of course, this would not always apply because we don't want tons of threads on the same topic, but if it is a thread that has been inactive and it would make more sense to just leave it and start a new thread I think this could be an effective way to do this.

Just a thought.
