Would it be possible to create an Official Locked Threads thread with links to threads that get locked? Locked threads no seem to go into a void.
It would be helpful so that we can use them for reference in other threads.
I think the idea from Talon was to make them drop away from the buddy at least so that if they're locked for a reason such as having something really bad posted in them that people will not login the following day and see whatever got posted which was so bad that mods dropped the hammer on the thread as a whole.
Just that threads can't really be deleted on here I think so it's a handy tool in a way to make sure that trash that shouldn't be seen doesn't get seen. (by the masses I mean, obviously there's reasons sometimes where you might want to see what happened for a thread to go "over the limit" and get locked so of course a category to see them could be useful, I'm just explaining why they have been sent to that void from our buddy)
They don't just drop from your Buddy list but gone from the forum board, your posts are gone, etc...
My point was a lot of those threads contain great research and when similar threads come up, it sucks having to redo all that research again. Being able to access them again for referencing would save a ton of time and build better debates.
I can understand keeping them blocked from users not logged in though.
