PSA : "Off Topic"

When a thread is locked by a Host for not meeting the Statement of Purpose of a forum (found under "About this forum" above posts on forum's main page), the software automatically inserts the phrase "off topic" no matter the real reason.

To discover the reason the thread was locked, please look to typically the last post where the Host who locked replied with the reason. Sometimes a Host will not reply before locking, in which case please pm them and ask.

Please understand that Hosts have no ability to not have the phrase "off topic" inserted into the OP. It is the software, often inaccurate, and happens on every host locked thread.

Thank you.
