    Why is every topic that one finds of the slightest interest locked.

    Just at a guess...

    There's a forum software parameter that auto-locks threads which haven't been posted to in a set amount of time... like say 120 days.

    ECF has decided to leave that parameter switched on.
    I don't care for it myself, though I accept there are both pros and cons to either position.
    I've seen twelve year old (dead) threads "necro'd" and it can be annoying.
    Then again... a few months is rather too short IMO.

    It might be possible to "revive" a thread by reporting the OP and asking it to be reopened. I stress the "might".

    Or start a new thread and hope the original posters see it and are still interested.

    I like the first idea better TBH, it would/should alert the participants. ;)

    Well... drag their butts back. :p

    Not everyone agrees on how a board should be moderated, and I wouldn't like this one to be my only vape forum... but it's a valuable addition to the online vape world and a valued source of information.

    You just have to behave yourself a little more strictly while here (hell... if I can do it ;) ).

    And considering how volatile the vape market, and various national laws, are in the Pacific and Asian areas... you and your fellow Aussies can help others there with purchase and vendor decisions (I guess we can let the Kiwis in too... I guess. :p ).

    Lol I prefer the Aussie one now emusplace.proboards.com Its a scream and no one gets spanked there and not only vape topics but a bucket load more. Its a problem with big forums when they get big servers jack up

    I'm getting threads that I'm locked out of. How can I get the ban lifted?

    Maybe a pm to an admin could help?
