Locking a thread is not moderating it, it's just cutting it off at an arbitrary time.  If you want to moderate a thread that's going nowhere then get it back on track, otherwise just leave it alone.

By any chance are you talking about that Kyrie thread I just locked that was going nowhere for ten pages?

Well yes, but it's a general statement.  If you feel a thread is going nowhere and want to change it then get it to go somewhere, locking it doesn't actually accomplish anything.  Moderate threads or leave them alone and stick to deleting porn gifs and moving active threads to boards that nobody reads.

If you don't like how something is done, moderate yourself. Shut up already.

Quit bitching then. If you want to become a mod and do things your way, I'm sure anmar would give you a spot whenever he decides to come around again.

So I should ask to be a mod so I can unlock threads that are locked because moderators are too lazy to actually moderate?  Wouldn't it be easier to just not cut threads off arbitrarily?

You never asked to unlock any thread though.

Which thread are we talking about here? Or is it numerous?
I've only locked one thread and move it, so far. It's the only thread I've seen that needed it.

Duck is right, we can't just lock thread, we have to actually moderate them, not just kill things off. The crap is still there otherwise ... but we're learning, it's only been a few days.

I said I'd take this seriously (within reason anyway) and I am, so if anyone has any suggestions or anyhing then by all means let us know ... again, within reason, douchenozzles.
