why do my threads have locks on the right sides?
« on: July 13, 2012, 11:35:47 PM »
Just wondering what the locks on the right sides of my posts mean? and do I need to use them for anything?  I don't see anyone else with them.

That allows you to lock a topic YOU started so no furthur comments can be added. We all show those for our topics but we only have the option to lock the ones we start.

If you didn't click on the lock icon and agree to the confirmation popup, then it's not locked. The lack of replies is because no one has replied...

Locked threads should have a lock icon on the left side. Since there aren't many troublemakers here, it rarely shows up.
