Reason for Locked Threads (General)

Threads will lock automatically after 20 entries. The reason for this is because
when you are viewing the thread you will notice each reply is progressively
indented further. If a thread, especially in 'Table View' mode has a long title
is allowed to continued on for ever the title gets wrapped on to many lines
which is difficult to follow and makes very unfriendly viewing.

Also, in most cases after 20 entries the contents of the posts have drifted away
from the original subject and what is being posted really needs to have a new
thread of its own.

If you want to reply to a post in a thread that has been locked for this reason
then all you need to do is start a new topic with a different and appropriate
title
with reference and link to the old thread within the content of your new message.
