Allowing members to open/close threads?

As an owner of a forum would you allow members to open and close their own threads? I think it's a bad idea as why would they start a topic only to close it?

Nope. If people were allowed to do this then why the need to add moderators? This is purely a job for the moderators to do.

I agree that only staff should be able to have the power to open and close threads. If just anyone can do it then it might cause a lot of head aches.

It depends on the section. If you have a thread to accept job applications, you may want the thread poster to be able to close their thread when they're done (but not open it again?).
