    AutoMatic Pm

    I think it would be really usefull if there was a way to autmatically send a pm when ur thread is locked/deleted. Just a defualt message that says, ur thread _____ was locked today becuase of ______. Mods can choose from 5 options so it is easy for them, the five options could be, talk of warez, selling outside classifieds........

    just a thought

    Does it happen all that often? I've never had a thread of mine locked or deleted.

    ...at least not that I know about. I guess I get your point.

    If it's not obvious why I lock a thread, I'll say why I locked it. Either in PM or in the thread.

    Sometimes, a perfectly legitimate thread can go awry due to the actions of other people. What can the OP do in such a case? No point in notifying the OP

    I am all for notification. But not the Op. Notify the offender by PM! This should be a requirement for the simple reasoning that if they do not go back to the thread that was locked or the post that was edited, then they will not have any idea they did something wrong and are more likely to do it again.

    Sometimes, though...I'm not sure why the thread was locked, and the admin doesn't give a reason in the last post.

    Once you are here longer, you understand more and more why certain threads get locked.

    Also... believe it or not... I've asked for one of my own threads to be locked. I'd gotten all the info needed, nobody could add anything to it, so I asked Oni to lock it and he did.

    The only threads I lock without an explination are those in GD, but there is a sticky on why those threads have been locked. I also very rarely delete a thread, I tend to just delete the crap out of the thread and let it go from there.

    If you have a question about why and you don't know the reason, PM the mod or admin, or if you don't know who locked the thread, then a mod or admin.

    I am not opposed to such a feature at all, but I don't know if it exists as a mod to vB that we could install or whatnot.
    Cameron: Are you crazy, House? You can't divide by zero! The server is almost overloaded as it is, despite us having pumped it full of matrices!
    Foreman: He was right about that infinite sequence last week... maybe we didn't consider this could be an asymptotic problem.
    House: This is the only way! Sometimes solutions are NP complete and there's nothing anyone can do about it! Foreman, sneak into the physics department and reroute their servers to ours, we need the extra processors if we don't want this equation to go quadratic on us. Chase, patch the memory leak and install Matlab 9.3.
    Chase: Shouldn't we be using Mathematica for potentially asymptotic functions?
    House: When I want your opinion, I'll do an affine transformation to get it. I'm off to see Cuddy. Those parabolic eigenvalues of hers must be good for something.
