I point out again, when was the last innocent thread locked?

?Let it Go..." and then you guys reply to it like a small conversation. Do you know how hypocritical that is?

Ooh, was that locked when I posted on it? Hmm...

I don't know... I just wish there was a way to unlock a thread. I almost think the thread's owner should have the ability to lock it as well as moderators. That would basically keep it so that thread locking can be negotiated. That brings me back to thread unlocking which would be useful in a situation where the owner of the thread or the vast majority of the participants thought that it was locked prematurely.

Thread locking isn't a problem, it's more of a tool.

But a tool is useless unless used/abused by the wielder.

I'd love to, but too many people seem to prefer arguing over things which are rather unlikely to amount to anything to talking about alligators.

I have seen plugins on forums where the owner of the thread can lock it, but still reply to it (Much like how a moderator can reply to locked topics here), moderators/admins of course can bypass the "Owner Lock".

Thus there are 2 types of locks on the forum, "Owner Lock" and "Lock" A moderator can do both, but a normal user can only lock their thread. (I know my forum has the plugin, so if you want a more detailed idea of how it works, you can go play around with it there).


Hmm.. makes me think, how about a tribunal kind of system, where "Innocent threads" that are locked can be voted to be unlocked? Though I'm sure that could be abused given the amount of duplicate accounts that some people have..

Maybe have people post on the designated vote topic, and only one vote counts per IP?
I dunno.

Unnecessary votes on unnecessarily locked thread are unnecessary.
