    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 The only exception to this should be if the player who originally made the thread wishes to lock their thread for whatever reason.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.

    I totally agree it annoys me so much. They act like staff.

    But staff don't lock threads just because people mention them, do they?

    I think that's the source of why players want to do it.
    I can't speak on behalf of staff, but I would assume their mentions don't play too much of a role on whether they lock a thread or not.

    Well, some players request lock and @ a staff member because some of the staff can't lock threads. Which may make it take longer to get the inappropriate thread locked. This shouldn't be punishable but there should be a plugin where the owner of the thread can lock it or something.

    Yeah allow the owner of the thread to lock and maybe institute a button to request lock so people don't have to post anything?

    It seems rather stupid for that to be punishable, that's just my opinion. Honestly, when players do that I see them as trying to help out.

    I don't think it should be punishable, as there's no real reason for it to be, players don't determine when a thread gets locked, but if it doesn't need to be open any more then it will be closed.

    maybe they could add like a function where you can vote if a thread should be locked

    (although this could easily be abused)

    Hmm, not super sure on that. It would make it entirely up to the players, not the staff or even the creator of the thread. If it's needed to be closed, then it will be

    Hmm, maybe? I'm not too sure on how the seniors would feel about that but it'd make sense to me.

    staff dont just lock a thread because someone requested. We look at it to see if the question was answered, or if the thread is being abused for post farming. Originally, only the owner of a thread would request lock, but now everyone does it.

    Even though it may be a pet-peeve for some, it does help the staff get to threads faster when they are notified, plus why should players be punished for trying to help the community.
