I know for a fact this will be a dumb question to most of you and I am almost certain the answer is staring me right in the face but I am just not seeing it. This is the first day that I have been on this form if that excuse will work. I am still trying to learn the ropes.

I am noticing these posts that say No New Posts Locked. Why are they locked? Is there something wrong with these posts?

:D

We lock the posts when the thread contains content that may still be valuable, but the thread itself has reached a dead end or has become unproductive or has gone too far off-topic.

We also lock topics that have been asked repetitively on the boards and usually provide additional comments to the poster to get them in the right direction.

Normally we delete spam on sight, but sometimes we will leave odds and ends there as an example of what not to post at OZZU.

And finally, when an individual is seeking professional help and is willing to pay, we will usually leave those, but lock them and direct users to respond in private as we are not an advertising place.

There are other reasons, but those are the primary ones.

it means that the post was either spam, a dead end, or a question that
has been asked 100 times before. Although, most spam and
self-promotion is usually removed. This is the moderator's decision in
terms of the benefit of the community.

We run a tight ship here at OZZU, it makes things a lot easier for you to
find and give the help we need to keep things going. Glad to see you
here, and I hope you become an integral part of what we do here.

Enjoy OZZU! :D

Yeah - what ^he^ said - jinx

Also, if we feel that a topic can be merged with the same or related discussion already in progress we will merge those topics and if a topic belongs in a more appropriate forum we will move those to the appropriate place. These topics will have a "shadow" at the old location so you can easily find it and will be noted as "moved" in the subject line.
