OFF-Topic why the lock?Locked1,085 Views5 RepliesAdd A Reply
Now before you say that I should PM this instead of making a whole thread, the reason I wanted to make a thread is because I'm talking specificly to everyone. So the question is....why do we have to lock topics. Dumb question, understandable. I just find it anoying that we have locked topics. Now don't get me wrong I understand why we have locked topics but I personally at heart don't find these reason for having these locked topics exscusible, my opinion. There are some locke topics that I want to respond to and I feel like we should have a right to respond to any topic we want. Trust me, I have a WHOLE list of locked topics I want to respond to. Now before you guys respond just remember to be civil because I am aware that this kind of question would definently have a high chance of starting a big fight, or possibly get locked itself which would be kinda trolololololo
If you could point to which topics are specifically locked it would be easier to follow you. As it stands, topics are locked either because people couldn't be civil or because it was a repeat topic in which case the initial version of that topic is linked before the repeat is closed.
I'm sorry you feel some topics shouldn't be locked, but unless you can point to specifics all I can say is that they were locked for good reason. If you want to respond to them or continue said locked topic in a civil way you can try it again yourself or look at the repeats. Having a right to respond to topics does not overright broken rules which is more immediate an issue when things get out of hand.
Like Gman said, some do need to be locked before someone gets ofended or because its something that has already been posted

Yes yes I understand your concerns gentlemen (or Kaiju) But its just my opinion.
So because you want to respond to them they shouldn't be locked?
And with that, this thread has lost its usefulness. Not that it was very useful to begin with.
I don't think anything here warrants a conversation. There are rules on the forum. The rules must be followed and if they aren't topics are locked or members are warned/banned. It's as simple as that. I gave you alternatives for topics you wish you had replied to, but the fact is, "because I want to reply to them" isn't good enough of a reason to keep bad topics open. Sorry.
If you have any further questions or comments about the rules and why we do what we do you can PM me. Topic over.
