For some reason, it's been a long-standing community tradition where users will ask for their topic to be locked once their question has been answered. This is silly, because other users may want to discuss it further, or they may have the same question and would have to make a new topic.
Please do not ask for topic locks anymore. We will no longer fulfill your request.
The exception to this rule is if you have an art/project/graphic pack/whatever thread and have put it on hiatus or cancelled it and would like your thread locked. If you have a question or think your topic may warrant an exception to this rule, feel free to PM a staff member and we will assist you.
