    Since staff can obviously do this.
    I think we need this. We can do it on our profiles, why not on our own threads?

    Some people make threads about something and after a few days it's almost like a cyber-riot.
    I think general members of the MeepCraft forum should have the option to lock their thread (this could be an alternative to deleting).
    Locking a thread means that nobody but staff can reply to it. Other members, however, will be able to 'like' posts, but not reply.

    Members can lock their thread ONLY IF:
    *They created that thread
    *If they feel the posts after a while aren't relevant or it's turned into an irrelevant conversation
    *If they don't want any replies to it (eg. like a small note)


    You cannot lock a thread if:
    *It's an Application of some sort
    *It's a player report
    *It's a ban appeal
    *It's a suggestion (unless you just want staff to accept/deny and nobody else commenting)
    You cannot delete comments on a staff application, etc. (Forgot to type this in)


    Deleting Comments:
    You can only delete comments if you're the creator of the thread.
    This is similar to report but I find it's useless. If you're the creator of the thread, you can delete a persons' comment, making that nobody else but moderators can see that persons comment.
    Moderators can also moderate comments that have been deleted from threads, so basically if a player is deleting peoples comments just for the sake of it, or without any reason, they can be sanctioned. This also prevents further conflict.

    +1 for lock, -1 for delete. People would just censor people saying things that they dont like.

    I like the locking part, but deleting comments, -1. People would just delete the -1's on their app. so basically:

    +1 for lock and deleting comments on non-essential threads(no deleting on suggestions, applications, ban reqs, ban appeals.)

    Please stop quoting and spamming the same thing.
    I think we get the +1 for lock, -1 for delete :)

    Perhaps +1 on the locking threads.

    -1 on deleting because spiteful people will begin deleting posts to remove likes, then people come crying to us and it's an entire mess. :) It's just not worth the work it'd cause.

    It could also reduce necro.
