Locks

Postby Big Dumb Face » Thu Jun 28, 2007 10:32 am

I was looking through old topics and noticed that every single oe of them is locked. I couldn't find anything baout in the rules so iwas wondering what makes a topic lock worthy? Beyond redundancy I mean. Is there a time limit?

I guess it´s an algorythm that locks every thread that isn´t in the top 3 or 4 pages.

this is to prevent the annoying (to most people) phenomenon of "necroposting"

In any case, if you've got a topic for discussion that hasn't been covered in the last little while, you may as well make a new thread for it. No harm in keeping the forum dynamic refreshed.

the locked threads I see is people who say there new. Cant there be a forum for new people, they just want to say hi. Not much of a warm welcome the last user I saw had, hope he isnt upset. Poor guy.

A sticky idea to say hi has been suggested repeatedly, to me it seems like a good idea, but as somebodies sig wrote, "We're such a friendly group we don't need introductions."

Then they should of politely told him that was not allowed if they wrote they're a friendly group. Someone at school had asked a question and another person replied with a sour answer and boy did he get it. That guy dosent take no sour answers, well that guy wont try picking a fight with him next time hahahaha. I guess I'll use my icon to say hi then.

they did politely tell them it wasnt allowed O.o on the newest "introduction thread" thats what i was saying...

it doesnt necessarily have to be that person who once had it in their sig... anyone politely telling them counts i think O.o

It just depends on which user gets to your introduction thread first that decides if you get a 'polite' or 'rude' answer. o.O

Of course, but you have to understand that this site gets a lot of new members each day...and that would = a lot of introduction threads just taking up space....
