Radioloyalty for example now has nothing to do with the many questions that used to be asked about the 10min capture
and you can't expect people to be telepathic or expect newbies to trawl through tons of searches when this is supposed to be a community.
You wouldn't telephone a bank and expect the person that answers to be rude and say sorry but that question has been asked many times and then hangup.
That's effectively what is being done when a thread is locked.
I don't know why you are sorry. However, you are incorrect because nothing was
stated as being not important.
There is nothing wrong with locking a topic after it has been replied to. In fact, many
forums do it every time they reply to a question. Once the question is answered, it is
a very good idea to lock the topic for more reasons than one. One main reason is it
helps moderators know that the topic has been sufficiently replied to and that means
moderators can look for topics in which members need help. To not lock a topic after
the member receives the answer, is like putting a bandaid over the same wound, over
and over and over again. Just like now, this topic should have been locked because it
was already replied with the answer. What's happen is now you come along talking about
RadioLoyalty and stating things that are not so.....and this is another reason why topics
are locked, to prevent confusion and topics getting OFF topic.
It shouldn't be taken as insult because a topic is locked. Topics are locked for a variety
of reasons, of which a couple I just stated.
