The only bull I see in here is your whining.
But okay, I'll take that "compliment" of yours as a proof that you were wrong.



Toodles.

Yeah, I get what you mean, you know and it's kinda frustrating I guess for some people, I've tried to post only once, and it got locked, but I guess there is people who tries multiple times and it gets locked, it's obviously helpful that they lock some , but sometimes it'd be cool if they kinda told you to edit it or something so that it meets the requirements... ;)


The last line is a great point..i hadn't thought of that!!

^if it's something salvageable, that's what i usually do. i tell them to edit their topic or if they can't, i edit it for them. especially when it's awkward sounding/hard-to-understand.

Definitely seems fair....it hurt to see my forums dissapear .

I always thought a forum was the listing of all the topics.
And they were populated by topics/threads?

I just always find it strange when people say their forum got shut down
cuz to me that sounded like their whole site got shut down.

Well looks like your gonna have another one locked too o.o cus this went downhill quick

You are not alone in being puzzled by that...

"You locked my forum!"
"What forum? I don't see any forum belonging to you here..."

Though, I did see a post concerning duplicates and such that I kinda agree with.

When someone posts a duplicate thread, but the original thread hasn't been posted in since a year ago or so - instead of locking the duplicate, just lock the dead thread and let the duplicate prosper.

@Op.

Just use Google, a search engine, or the CR search bar before posting threads. It's not rocket science tbh. The mods even post why the threads are locked in most cases @ the closed section.

There should be expiration for threads tbh.
Like if someone hasn't posted in a thread for a certain amount of time, it should automatically be locked.

yeah once... stupid duplicates who wants to go through the whole freakin list of fourms just to check for dupes though? o.O i'm too lazy for that

Are these people complaining about searching for the original thread
not aware there is a thing called Google and the CR search function?



Seriously. It's not that hard.

Of course not every forum has this obsession with dupes. Other online discourse sites instead hate 'necro' threads or 'necro'ing threads. I'm not sure how idle a thread has to be to be declared dead. but I've seen 'necro' complaints come up on threads that have been brought back to life after only a week.

arbitrary rules are arbitrary.
