Moved Topics
« on: July 07, 2016, 02:29:46 pm »
I was thinking one way to improve the looks of each board page was to do away with the lock symbol on moved topics. Not really locked just moved. If you look at each board page ie C14 Chat and Tech it looks like we have a bunch of locked threads rather than just moved. I would leave the color just remove the lock.   What do you think?  TimR

I feel the forum software locks them by default to prevent a post made to them because they are only pointer topics. The move topics are only can/should be periodically swept away by performing routine database maintenance. Just my $0.02

There is more to be gained by members raising hands saying "I'll do that" instead of pointing fingers saying "nobody's doing that."

No Arguement here. I was only wondering if the lockedsymbol could somehow be removed with everything else staying the same.

The lock could be replaced with a little moving van icon.

Or better still, to "improve the looks of each board page," one could be more creative in placing one's threads appropriately so they don't have to be moved. Just sayin'.

Sort of a "WeHaul" symbol?

Actually a moving van would be sort of neat if it could be done. You guys crack me up.  ;)
