Anonymous locks should be removed...
    #4279378 - 06/10/05 12:10 PM (11 years, 5 months ago)

If for some reason a thread is locked, the mod that did it should be forced to post the reasoning behind it. No PM's, just make the last post in the thread an explanation.

It's stupid when a thread gets locked and then nobody knows why.

If a thread gets locked, then it's because it goes against one of the board or forum specific rules.

It's also for the rest of us though. Wouldn't it be more prudent to actually have what we did wrong explained so that we could avoid it in the future perhaps? When a thread just gets locked with no explanation then what's to stop us from doing it again? Even if we've read the rules we're obviously missing something or we wouldn't have made a thread which needs to be deleted or locked....

I can almost guarantee that if you followed the rules, then the thread won't get locked.

So when the mods don't reply then what do we do?

I feel that anonymous locks are feeding into the lack
of continuity and accountability that is plaguing the
moderation of some forums.

I believe that if a thread is to be locked, that the mod
who has taken the action should post in the thread
with a note indicating the reason why the thread was
locked.

This will keep the confusion and FUD to a minimum
by clearly explaining the reason for the closure as
well as establishing a clear record of lockings for each
moderator.

Surely accountability and clearer communication
can't be a bad thing.

yes, the mods should post some sort of message on why the thread was locked. a simple "no flaming" or anything else to that effect would be all that is necessary.

I agree with you. :thumbup:

Some locks just don't make any sense, even if you do look at the rules.

Not to say the pub is biased or anything... :rolleyes: But I have threads there that are locked for no good reason.

ya, i think its kinda dumb.....i mean, aside from flaming i think the threads should stay open. locking threads for going "off topic" in a forum that has no defined topic is just silly to me. the pub is a place to
