Locked Threads?

Hi. I haven't posted in years and finally got off my butt to post something to GD.

Almost immediately it got locked with some on the jury claiming I'm a freeper due to low post count.

How do you go about appealing a locked thread? I really wanted to discuss what I posted.

Thanks!

1. You can send a DU message (PM) to the host who locked your thread.

Make your case there. You will be heard.

2. Thanks CaliforniaPeggy, but...

The thread says "Message hidden by jury decision" and doesn't give me a link to a host to talk to.

Is there something I'm missing?

3. Sorry, I'm mixed up!

I was thinking this is waht you do when a post gets locked. Yours was hidden, not locked. There's no appeal for hidden posts...

4. Well that's a shame

Thanks for responding.

So, by virtue of having a low post count, I get called a freeper. I guess I'll just go back to lurking and leave it to the professionals.

5. If you think it warrants discussion post it with a link in Meta

Are you sure it is GD?

7. This one:

Fox as the source may have gotten it locked (not on the jury, so I don't have results).

8. Post in Meta with a link to your Hidden thread

Help and Welcome isn't the right place to discuss your thread, but it's the right place to ask about procedure. You can't appeal a hide by a jury, but you can discuss it in Meta.
