I had not noticed the President Poll was locked and I do not know why either, the only thing I could think of is that it got locked because the poll was closed but the conversation was not over. GTPForever will be able to look and see who locked it, but I just unlocked it. I think that you are right about the threads needing a reason for why a thread is getting locked, if you as a mod feel strong enough about a subject or the way the thread is going then make that the last post and let the people know why. If threads just get locked and no one knows why then the same subject might come up again and then another thread will get lock for "no reason" and as the trend goes then people will expect there threads to get locked when they post so they will post less. The president thread was in the Off Topic which is where that stuff should be talked about. We are all going to have different veiws. Just like the government, we all should be accountable for our actions.

Just to let you know, I am going to move this into the complaint section but I will leave a shadow...

That thread was locked by me, along with another which was when youngtpkid started a thread about how things were and the purpose of gtpworld. Both members are great yunggtpkid and copter but it seemed like the thread was headed in the same direction as the one about troy and how he runs things on this site etc... so as a mod, no matter what decision you make, of course there could be multiple people who agree as well as disagree, because as a mod and with the way things have been lately on this site i'd rather take a chance at locking a thread than have something blow up and get to be bigger than it really is, so if someone is disappointed about it, then if i made you uncomfortable in my judgement on trying to keep things cool here, wasnt my intention. But when you've been here and you see members drop like flies from a good site, trying to prevent something is worth trying. hope that clears that up, any other questions pm me or ask here

<p>I am not making assumptions about you, I am just pointing out the obvious.

Yes, 2 threads where locked because they where related to something that should have been handled through PM, or Chat. (Those two where obvious on why they where locked) I honestly don't know anything about the presidential thread, I pay more attention to the GTP related threads.

I suppose for avoiding hard feelings, if you have a problem or a question go to the top. Ask Troy in a PM. He responds very fast to those.

I also want you to put yourself in a new members shoes... If you see a post that starts out like this:

</p>
Why is it that i keep seeing threads getting locked for no real reason. Threads used to NEVER get locked on here and it seemed to work fine. What changed? I recall getting bashed once over a year ago for saying we should ban a certain topic, locking a thread isn't really any different.
<p>
Then wouldn't you be worried that this is going to be a petty and crappy forum, when in truth 3 out of hundreds of postings have been locked?




I really don't have a problem with you at all, I'm just asking you, and everyone else to think before you post since obviously people are getting hurt feelings over spilt milk.</p>

Sax, the two pissing contest threads were not in question why they were locked, I think those were kind of obvious. It was the President Poll one that had brought up the question. I think it was just the timing of these three happening at the same time.

Maybe even for the ones that we think are obvious we can just put a note at the end of the thread before we lock it with something about "The thread is being locked to keep the peace on this site, rude behavior is not appropreate and is not wanted here. If this needs to go further please peacefully take in Personal Messages (PM's) or contact admin. Thank you"

threat to lock this thread.
you call that a threat?? all i was saying was that if the right person read it it would be locked. you can ask troy to look through the history but i have never locked a thread and almost never delete or edit. anything i have ever deleted i sent a copy to troy so he can see why i did it and if he does not feel the same then he can put it back. i try and be fair to everyone but its people like you that cause issues on forums. you come with good info at times and other times it just drama. this thread should have been locked right after your first post but the mods try to be fair and see how the feed back is before. I DO NOT MAKE THREATS. ACTIONS ONLYImage <p>
