" Non-staff members are not allowed to request to lock threads unless it's their own. "
Why would that be usefull? It's not that if you ask for lock, you get lock. Staff members only lock when nescesary.
When Mr. no-controversy tags Mac on your game suggestion..
Yes please. It annoys me so much sometimes xD
What would you think if I replied on this thread with "this is dumb, lock? *tags every staff member to get attention* "
reasons please? Because it's pretty helpful with necro-posted threads or when a question has been answered.
You have a point, but you have to stay serious. You clearly see that this thread isn't finished yet, but when you see it, there's no problem for asking a lock. Most of the time people start about a new concept and then the thread is useless.
I indeed didn't stay serious there, but I still think only staff members or the maker of a thread should be the only ones that decide if something has to be locked or not.
If it's offensive or inappropriate, report it.
If it's and advertisement, report it.
If it's a polite and mature post, give your opinion and let other people give their opinion too.
If it's a question that has been answered, let it be until a staff member confirms the correct answer.
In before someone besides @GuaaaaarD;) requests this thread to be locked
I fell double about this, if this gets added, this will be a lot more clearly to see. But on the other side, if the owner of the thread is maybe on vacation and everybody is spamming that thread, what do we do then?
I think its fine as it is, its not like a player requesting a thread lock automatically gets it locked. The final decision still comes down to a staff member.
Maybe let it be a little longer open, so we can discuss a little bit more about the situation
Staff can still lock the thread.
That's what I said a few posts back
In most cases yes, but more often than not, especially with newer staff, some threads get locked down when the discussion is still open, which is extremely frustrating...
Want a cookie?
I don't see that happening to often.
No, I want a goat
