About a new thread option....
« on: June 07, 2005, 09:24:52 AM »

I noticed there's a new option "Lock this topic", just wonder if the starter of the thread could use it or not?
(I think this option should be only available for admins. :-[)

Personally, I think it could be quite useful for users.

For instance, the poster is uploading a large amount of work to the forum, which will take a few posts. To stop people replying too soon, they could lock the topic until everything is ready, when they would unlock it.

Yes, it's a good idea. But if you decide to make it an admin only option, so be it.

When you lock a topic, no one can change it, including you. So that would be pointless, I doubt you guys will have it.

I have been using the delete in my threads so that I can bump them up without double posting... Like when I uploaded my newer grunts... I still say keep it...

Anyone else using the delete?

That could be considered abuse of the option.

Well, its a 2 side option. Like Flowers of Naivety said, it can be ussefull, but the same way its usufull, it can also be abused very easily.
