Question from: kianve
« on: October 21, 2006, 02:44:08 PM »
What is the lock icon for?  Can I unlock it somehow.  Obviously I am a computer idiot so I apologize is this is the dumbest question you've ever had.

It's for "locking" thread topics in the forum, so that no one can post to that thread anymore.  That option has been turned off for regular users, because there are specific reasons why threads are locked (if they are getting out of hand with personal arguments, inappropriate threads, repeat posts, etc).  If you think a thread should be locked, PM one of the moderators.
