    Recently more than earlier a lot of forum topics get locked. While I understand that the forums need some moderation, it is not very transparent to just lock threads without giving any notice. Forum users can only guess why a thread was closed, and nothing was gained from that action as new threads on the same topic will just pop up again.

    My suggestion is that every forum moderator ending a thread by locking it, should post a final response stating the reason for locking.

    This has been the case since even the old forums mate, sadly nothing is going to change.

    I even had private conversations with staff about how the moderation is happening and all you get is a "tHanKs fOr fEEdBacK" and it doesn't amount to anything.

    Funny part is that the senior volunteer, Powerhungryist, is still in it's position after all this time, while you can clearly see why and who closes a thread for what.

    Please add to your thread that the mods actually inform people WHEN AND WHY their posts have been removed,
