I'm so sick of seeing players farm threads with useless "requesting lock" posts. 99% of the time it is posted when completely inappropriate, which ruins the momentum of perfectly fine threads. Who are players to determine when a thread is to be locked? Only staff should have the ability to distinguish threads deserving of locks from those who should remain open. The only exception to this should be if the player who originally made the thread wishes to lock their thread for whatever reason. Please add some sort of forums/server punishment for "requesting lock" and flooding staff's mentions.
