Default Locking threads...

When threads are locked, would it be possible for the locker to leave an explanation for why it was locked? or give a warning first? or somthing along those lines? Just noticed a few threads just appearing as locked with no explanation and a few I got confused as to why they were locked.

Probably just me being blonde, but thought it may make people think, on both sides.

If wanted I can find a few examples after dancing on ice results

xXx

ps. I need my spell check back sorry

i dont even know why the thread was bought back up!
but I do agree, when threads are closed sometimes its clear why. examples:

http://www.saxperience.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=200380

http://www.saxperience.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=200106

http://www.saxperience.com/forum/sho...d.php?t=199450

but sometimes its not clear why and memebers need to be told why. (not that were retards) but i thought the modeling one shut down because the word penis come up?

I do think a moderator should say why it's been locked. Even though I personally know why those 3 that djflip quoted were shut, but some others might hence the complaining you'll get.

Just my 2ps worth.

thats what i meant, its clear why in them links, but others are not.

on the other hand a mod may end up having people arguing the toss to why the thread was locked. By this I mean, if a mod says 'this thread is now going to be locked becuse of blah blah blah', there will be people in that thread then argue with the decision

If they argue lock and a warning to people arguing its not hard to report the mod x

TBF, who cares if a mod shuts a thread. There's always a reason for it and the chances are some narky little fecker is always going to feel it was the wrong decision.

There's so many threads on here anyway to post in that it can't raelly matter that much?

Mods are mods for a reason. They are considered to have the judgement skills to know when a thread should be shut. They shouldn't have to give reasons etc.
