Just wondering something, I have created a few threads and some have been questions etc and once answered just left open which brought an idea to my weird and wonderful mind of mine.

Why not allow the Elites the ability to close the threads they start when done or something, once closed they stay closed and can only be opened by Admins or Moderators.

So I start a thread and I am an Elite and only I can close it (Obviously Admins and Mods can too) but only the person who created can close, not every elite can close every thread, only ones they start themselves.

Just an idea really, as would love to close some questions I have had answered and left open you know.

Kind regards

You can use the report post or pm a mod to lock a topic, I think it would be unnecessary.

I thought the "Report Post" button was big, apparently the solution is to make that button bigger, nothing else.

If you ever need a topic of yours locked, you can always just report your post. The first mod online will likely get it. Same goes for any topic that's not yours, as long as there's a valid reason for it to be locked.
