I've searched and hope this isn't another "asked every week" question.  Why does a thread get locked?  I was reading a thread and wanted to comment but it has a red button reading "this topic has been locked".

There are more than one reason. 

Staff might want to keep the post viewable, but make a point (very small activity).  Or, Staff might feel that everything possible has been said about a particular issue, and that insults and other inappropriate things are evolving and getting out of hand (very large activity).

 

Perhaps there are other reasons, but always with the thought that it benefits the Site and its members.

I am also running into this issue.  I want to ask questions on couple posts in the marketplace.  I do see others comments on the post but I just get the Post locked.  I am new to the forum and wonder if I am just too new to post.

Replying to this topic to help get my post count up... 25 seems kind of high to be allowed to post in the classifieds.
