Large Threads Not Getting Locked Anymore? (Low Priority)
« on: September 02, 2013, 12:45:55 PM »
Hi.

I noticed some threads are not getting locked after hitting 10k posts anymore. I understand it was a problem with the old server and maybe not needed anymore. Buuuuut I was wondering if maybe we could still have a lock out policy?

I know I am not the only one who liked spammy threads eventually vanishing from my "threads you have responded to" link? I am even posting in some to get them there faster haha.

Like the title says low priority but it is something I'd like staff to think about maybe when other stuff is cleared up!

Thanks!

I, too, would love this option, wonderful staff! I concur with Red, there are a few threads I wouldn't mind disappearing. :)

But it's not a major priority, so no worries! Just would be a nice option. :-)

Best solution here is probably just to report a thread that's particularly offensive in this manner, at least for now.

Ja - I asked Avis about the Hotbox a few days back and he said he was checking. If he answered after that, I missed it.

Via report function, PM, or what?

The report function lets us all see it and whoever can take care of it. Also, if multiple people report the thread it's much easier to notice.

Report function for threads is good all-around. If only the report pm function was so smooth : /

I'm not reporting it or anything. It's not offensive, just annoying that I posted about 10,000 posts ago and it won't leave me alone now

This thread is actually the reason I prayed for an Ignore button.
