    I was searching for something one time, and I found an old thread that had been locked, I think it was in 2003 or something...

    I think it goes to the admin forum, which none of us know exist, because we can't even see it.

    It just drops down the list into oblivion because nobody can reply and keep it alive. Unless you persuade the mod who locked it to unlock it.../forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif

    Other options for mod's are a straight delete which is self explanatory, or moving it to the correct forum, or to move it to the Admin forum so the boss can have a look and make a decision.

    Interesting... I was looking for the last locked one and couldn't fine it. It was a backcountry happy thread (go figure), it seems to be no more...

    I don't think the admin forum is such a big secret...it's been mentioned many times before. It's at the very bottom of the forum list. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif
