so many locked topics!!

Postby MannequinOFolly » Fri Nov 03, 2006 2:11 am

have you noticed how many locked topics there are?
maybe its the people of this forum, putting out so many stupid/offensive topics.
OR...., maybe its the editors of this site, locking what could be a fun-to-post-on topic, and if feelings are hurt through the thoughts and agitation that is let out, well, then thats what forums are all about! or maybe they're just doing this for our own good, keeping us from wasting our time on meeningless topics.
any thoughts?

I think some threads that get locked don’t get archived for public reference, or something. We get lots of strange posts though, especially in Polls.

The more dumb topics there are, the more locked topics there will be. This will probably end up among the ranks of those locked topics. It certainly fits the dumb/pointless prerequisite rather well.

1 and 3 are more likely. Fun-to-post-on topics are fine until someone says something that turns the thread into crap, and then that gets locked.

Also, some threads get locked because there are older threads about the same topic, and we mods can either merge the two threads or lock the newer one.

About 70% of the locked topics are just spam from spammers. The other 25% are just stupid topics from n00bs. The other 5% is when sh*t goes wrong in a topic (flame wars are probably the top cause for it) and it ends up getting locked. Just look at m_d_b's topic, it turned into complete chaos and got locked.
