When u try to post a thread in the Help sub-forum, u get a "Sorry, this forum is locked." error. I understand that u need to pick a specific sub-forum within the Help sub-forum, but I think a lot of people don't seem to know that since I've noticed an increase in Help-related topics being created in other places outside the Help forums, and I remember seeing another poster who did this, since he thought the Help forums were actually locked because of this error. To help alleviate this problem, perhaps there can be an extra sentence added to that "Sorry, this forum is locked." error that says something like: "If you'd like to create a Help-related thread, please do so in the appropriate Help sub-forums which can all be found here and near the top of the page."

Anyway, just a thought! ^.^

I don't even see an option for a "New Topic" on the Help forum page. Was that just removed, or are people doing some kind of jiggery-pokery to see this error message?

I still see it; just to the right of the search box.

Didn't even notice that button. I was just looking for the one on the horizontal bar that says "Help!"
