Locking threads

Postby Deutche » Wed Jun 27, 2012 7:08 pm

Since I am a newbie was wondering why the threads in transfer section don't get locked. Giroud is now with Arsenal yet thread is still active. Many more threads about Robben etc players that are not locked. Is this in case something happens so we have the ability to post?

Yes. Let's say in a year's time Bayern are rumoured to be after Giroud, then we'd have an unlocked thread open for anyone to continue on rather than opening a new thread.

Understood. I guess the only way to make it work and it's more work for Mods is to lock them up and if someone opens a new thread about an existing one you merge them. Or you could use stickies for current transfers and drop them if transfer is done without locking thread. It would help to clean up that section a bit. But realize that's more work that you dont need right now.

Stickies are an interesting idea but if we have a new hot rumour we will have a while without a sticky until a moderator sees it and sticks it. During this time it would be hidden below the other stickies.

To be honest most of the time we only post about new rumours or discuss ongoing ones so because of the new posts, it is still only the current rumours which appear at the top of the page.
