Lock topic button?
« on: June 28, 2012, 02:48:06 PM »
I appear to have a lock topic button on threads I started.  I'm posting this so I can find out if it actually works.
(I'm an obsessive problem-solver, so feel free to ignore any suggestions or solutions I offer, even if they sound terribly insistent.)

Ooh, it does!  The reply button disappears when I click on lock topic.  How fun!  Now I can start lots of threads saying provocative and scandalous things and people won't be able to answer me back until Sunshine and Kizzy catch me and give me a slap on the wrist...

 >lol<  Gotcha  >devil<

I've never logged in as a 'non-mod' member, so I haven't seen what's available and what's not, but I know SM has a second 'ordinary member' account so she can check technical issues - I've PM-ed her about this, must be some kind of fault  >tah<

Sofie - you have one too?  What else does it show at the bottom of a thread for you?

It only shows the lock topic at the bottom of threads I've made. So, I can't lock this thread; but can lock any I've made.

Interesting - it's beginning to sound like the option's been there for a while, possibly for everyone...

Good lord, we could have had havoc on here  >yikes<  >biggrin<

Thanks, Sofie  >thumbsup<

Just shows how well-behaved most of the posters are, doesn't it? 
If someone starts a topic & doesn't like the answer they get, has anyone actually locked it? 
You'd probably have noticed if that was happening, Kizzy.  >lol<

 >biggrin<

People have always been able to lock their own topics and also lock their own polls. I left it like that because it means if a topic person starts runs to quickly for the author to keep up they can lock it until they have time to reply. I never thought to publicise the fact  >blush< >whistle< >lol<. If someone locked their thread without good reason Kizzy and I could just unlock it and employ a  >flyswatter<.

I love the poll that has been added to this thread  >angel<
