Hi and Welcome to WI. The Mods & Admins only let our Threads stay open for a certain amount of time (not sure how much). I also have had Threads locked but don't remember how long they were open for. I sorry I could be of more help.

Hi! Threads automatically close if there's no activity on them for 2 weeks. If a thread has been closed where that isn't the case you might want to try contacting an admin. They are in red at the bottom of the forum. Good luck!

A thread is closed after two weeks of no activity. You can always keep your threads alive by simply posting in them yourself. And try to keep your topics interesting, make sure it is a well presented thread, good grammar and such. BTW welcome to WI

Also this should be in the somebody help section

Default Re: my threads keep getting locked

I had that happen too! I have almost given up starting threads until more people get to know me on here. It seems more likely they will reply to mine if I reply to theirs first, so I have been reading others threads and replying and trying to be friendly. I didn't know about the two-week-no-activity-thing, but I guess that makes sense! I used to get my feelings hurt because no one would post on my threads and then I would see some threads with 100's of replies, but I think when we are new, maybe we don't know how to make good and interesting ones, or no one knows us yet. Don't give up though!!! I haven't. If I see something you have posted, I will reply!!!! I have only been a member for three months, I think. Some people have been on here for years, so they know each other! I think some people join and never really do much too, so maybe they wait to see if you are really going to participate and be an active member? I don't know, this is all just supposition, but don't give up and by the way-WELCOME!!!!

Hi rmr16,

Please feel free to PM a staff member or red flag a post in one of your closed threads and we can re-open it for you. Do not make a new thread when the original has closed (unless your thread has reached 1000 posts).

Two weeks is the non-activity time, and the system closes your thread if there are no posts after two weeks.

Default Re: my threads keep getting locked

Please do not feel hurt. Many threads close after no posts within 2 weeks ( Want to keep the thread going? Post yourself. ) Some threads are automatically closed because they are inapropriate or spam. I'm guessing yours aren't! Threads also close after a thread has reached up to 5,000 posts. ( Atleast that happens for me on my Role-Play Threads). Many people may just not be online when you post these threads and miss them. It could also be that they don't find the title interesting enough. Go to "guides and how-tos" and there should be a thread on how to make good threads .

Good luck!

P.S - You can put the link to your threads in you're signature! Whenever you post or be friendly with somebody, they'll probably want to check out your threads!

Threads lock by themselves if there has been no activity on it for 2 weeks. Also it could be that your question has been answered. Getting a thread locked isn't always a bad thing.
