TL;DR Asking if we can do automatic closing of questions after a set amount of time if OP has no interaction with the question after an answer has been posted.
EDIT It looks as though there is actually something in place for questions with no movement. https://meta.stackexchange.com/a/92006/296524 It doesn't look though that if it has answers they close it, only ones that don't.
Is there possibly a way that there could be an automatic question closing after a set amount of time of no activity if there is an answer? What I mean is that if someone asks a question, and they get an answer but they fail to acknowledge the answer or their own question after say 30 days that then the question automatically rolls over to closed.
I wrote an answer over a year ago where at my job we setup servers all the time with bonding with fail-over configured on them. I don't write answers that I have not tested out and the answer in this question is no exception. Well, after a year OP finally gets back to me and tells me that my answer is indirect of the question asked. To me it seems that OP never tested my answer to see if it worked for them or not but went on their own way to solve their issue another way.
We take time out of our days to answer questions for people all day long where we do not get paid at all and are doing this out of the kindness of our hearts for people. Or there are those that are doing this for fake internet points ;). Regardless of the reason why we write answers for people it would be nice if OPs would simply respond within a reasonable amount of time for the answers that we have spent our time researching and writing. But, we don't have control over whether OPs respond or not to our answers.
So, would it be possible to have an automatic close with a warning to OP when asking the question stating that after the last answer has been written that OP has 30 days to respond or the question will be closed?
Thank you for taking your time to read my long question.
