Ability for Topic-Starter Person to close their own topic.


I think there should be an option in the board management panel where the admin can turn this feature on. Simply put, it let's people who start topics lock their own topic immediately rather than asking an admin to do that for them.

As said, it's just an on/off option so the boards not wanting that feature aren't forced to use it.

Any comments/feedback? emoticon

It's an intersting idea, because it preserves a thread but stops any discussion.

I can definitely see it work on some boards and not on others - so yes, being able to turn it on or off would be necessary.

Perhaps admins could enable/disable it on a per-forum basis. Imagine if someone wants to create a private 'blogs' forum for their members that is separate from our publicly-viewable blogs. Each member could have their own topic and choose to disallow replies from other members.

I like the idea as long as it is something any admin on a board could enable or disable.

Yep with most of my suggestions I suggest the optional bit so other boards aren't affected by that.

I wouldn't use it but I saw a use for it in some places emoticon
