    When a thread gets closed do you ever post a reason for the closure?

    personally i like to see a little blurb as to why,particularly if i have a post in the thread.

    i wasnt in it, but the cedar thread seemed civil. wonder why it was closed? maybe its been pruned?

    I was the OP on the cedar deck board thread.

    Thanks for all the replies. Don't know why it was closed??

    The "closing" looks like a simple error. Somebody hit the wrong key...... I'm guessing that it'll probably open up again soon.....

    cheers

    I have to think it's a case of a mis-click with the cedar board thread. I mean why would a mod ask for clarification from the OP, and then lock it...?

    Doesn't make sense... Must be a mistake.

    PS: Looks like John beat me to it...

    Not sure why it was closed either. Normally a reason for closing a thread is posted. I suspect in this case it was done in error. In any event, its open again.

    It was open when I posted in it, a little bit before that if I can calculate the time zone right.

    Heck, I didn't even know OPs could close threads.

    I think it is only mod/admins who can close a thread.

    Matt, I have the same issues when trying to use my phone perusing forums. I only bother with it if I have some spare time somewhere, and that rarely happens.
