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.

Why does this surprise you?

The presumption has ALWAYS been that recreating a locked thread is just deliberate defiance of the forum rules and moderators, and is therefore not to be done.

Very occasionally you will see a moderator (particular JMods) say that a certain thread can be recreated, usually subject to meeting certain conditions, or because the original was only closed because it got way off track. But the default position is that locked threads are not recreated.

There is no contradiction at all, in fact, you are a first-hand witness of an option to repost the same threat topic that was locked. It is a judgement call of the moderator if such option will be granted to the thread author of a locked thread. Case-to-case basis.
