    Regarding the locking of threads.
    Enough is enough.
    If a thread is locked ,it is not for question,it is not for discussion in other threads.It is not for PM's.It is not for sly digs at the moderators(yes we can read between the lines)
    Build a bridge and get over it.
    Mods have enough to do without sorting out petty bickering.
    In future we wont give you reasons ,we will just delete it and any other threads where complaints are made about another being locked.
    It is a challenge to our editing policy which is clearly stated in our terms of use.
    We dont like having to lock threads ,it is done for a reason.That reason may not be clear to you but it is to us.You may not realise we may have had complaints about it or there's content that is against our terms of use.
    The decision to lock a thread is not made by us lightly.Last thing we want to see is threads locked.
    I hope I made that clear enough.
    Happy Posting !

    Well said Mod 3!
    We are well aware of what is going on within the forums and Mods are getting rather fed up with being challenged, questioned and asked to explain reasons all the time.
    All of the mods consult amongst ourselves and admin when we see issues on the forum - so please note that all decisions are not come to lightly!!!

    I fully agreed with Mod 3 and Mod be honest I do hate seeing thread getting locked...which is just pity but if members don't behave then we have no choice but to lock it!:(

    We are trying to give the members some benefits to what they post but it has to be within Stockyard's rules, if you followed then it will stay open and keep posting interesting things!

    Have a good day everyone....

    Might I suggest making this post Sticky, for a few days at least. The rate new posts happen this will need to bumped ever few hours otherwise.

    What really gets up my nose is when a thread gets locked, and then some twit starts up another thread on exactly the same subject KNOWING full well it will turn into the same argument/line of discussion.....

    The poor mods end up having to sit and watch the entire time....

    Taeliesyn ,thanks for your suggestion.We usually do make it a sticky topic after the first day of posting.Sometimes with a new post members overlook it if its sticky so we just keep bumping it up until most have seen it.

    Oh and just one more gripe.Can members PLEASE watch their language in threads.Stockyards is for everyone not just adults and some children may be reading.
    Would be very much appreciated.

    Ditto! Its happening all to often! If a thread is closed, it is closed for a reason, DO NOT go opening another to carry on the same conversation.

    I don't have a problem at all with locking threads, yes it is a shame that it has to come to that but sometimes it really is necessary! so thanks mods, I don't like to imagine what this forum would be like without you as I for one certainly wouldn't be here lol :))
