Just had confirmation from a CM that we are never allowed to remake locked threads.

Original message details are unavailable.
Do not remake locked threads that were locked for a reason.
All threads that are locked are locked for a reason, so it's clear that we are never allowed to remake a thread that has been locked. Just thought I'd let everyone know!


Perhaps he could've worded it better, but most of us here know that it's contextual.

There are cases when Fmods have urged the OP to remake a thread. It depends.

I agree and I find it quite reasonable.

I was going to argue that it's also contextual, but to be fair, in my reflection of the attitudes and conduct of the Fmods as well as Lmods have adopted in moderating in this era, perhaps there is no need for me to argue as such.

From what I've observed in the past couple of years, threads which have been locked and warned not to be remade, were reasonably applied - because the title, opening post and nature of the topic was such that the thread could not have been reproduced without violating the CoC.

@CM Nick

It used to be a posted rule, as were a lot of other things, I can't seem to find it now however. There was also things like you cannot recreate a thread that someone else created, without their explicit permission.

I think they reformatted the rules, and condensed them, quite some time ago. The forum rules were far more extensive than they are now.

There is no hard rule stating we can not remake a locked thread, I have never heard this until your post CM Nick and I have been here for a many a year.


I feel like I'm going crazy (lol this is such a common phrase for me to use on these forums), but I feel like I have seen that rule somewhere at some point of time.

It's either that or maybe the repeated warnings of "don't recreate this thread" by forum mods over the many years have instilled this norm that recreating locked threads is in violation of the CoC.
