For new members (or old members who run into an issue), please make a post in this forum asking any questions you have about using the site and how it works that are not answered in the FAQ. Not only are we happy help you, but also we can use your feedback to make the site better for tomorrow's new member! A lot of the instructions throughout the site and answers in the FAQ are there because someone else pointed out that it wasn't clear before.

Topic Locked?

Post by Jennifer Allsbrook » 28 Oct 2017, 15:27

Why would I be locked out of a topic? I just finished reading the book of the month and was trying to add my replies to the posted discussion threads. I have three jobs and little time so was replying to the threads and now I am locked out. Please explain and will this topic open back up for me so that I can continue before the end of the month?

I'm not sure what could be the problem. Could you copy the message that comes up?

It is allowing me to post now. I suppose I had posted too many replies within the topic too quickly and it locked me out. The message said roughly: This topic is locked to future comments and replies.

How strange. I've never come across anything like that.

I'm glad it's working now. :)
