Thanks to Andy for whipping up this helpful little addon on request. I have weekly giveaway's and just wanted a way to auto-close the previous week's giveaway after a certain amount of time, to keep people from posting to those older threads and keep the most current giveaway at the top. Of course I could do this manually, but I'd often forget, so this is very helpful.
