Hi, I'm new to WI and I had commented earlier on a thread saying I was going to enter a contest, and when I finished my entry, I did not find the reply box and it said "Closed Thread". What does that mean?
This means that either the owner of the thread has flagged their thread and asked for it to be closed, or it was closed by a Mod or Admin.
Also, if the thread hasn't been posted on for 2 weeks, it will be closed as well or if the member has been banned.
Hope this answers your question, and welcome to WI!
Threads can be closed for multiple reasons.
Admin can close them for people being rude (so they can easily delete posts without people commenting on the bad posts), for people spamming, when someone gets banned... there's a lot of different reasons.
However, contests threads are different.
I mean they do follow the other "closing rules" but they will also be closed at certain times.
Contest threads in the Food section close after results are posted or enough participates are found (I believe that's the rule).
While contests in the Contest and Prizes section close at 10pm when the contest ends.
So if you posted in the Contest and Prizes section thread yesterday and the contest ended yesterday, it would end at 10PM EST instead of 12 midnight. That's why you might have come to it closed (if it was after 10PM and ended yesterday).
Threads can be closed for a lot of reasons. Here are the reasons
1 There wasn't a post on the thread for two weeks
2 The owner of the thread flagged it to be closed
3 A Mod/Admin closed it
4( most likely one) The thread closed because the contest ended( Most contests are EST)
5 Thread was removed because of breaking the rules.
