Why isn't voting allowed on locked threads? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Sometimes they're locked because the discussion went way off track.  Other times they're locked because they're stickied to the top of various forums.

    For the former, if the threads aren't valuable, they should be removed.  For the latter, they got stickied for a reason, and probably before a group of folks got a chance to vote on them.

    I can't think of reasons why voting would be a bad thing for locked threads.  Anyone have some examples of where this wouldn't be appropriate?

  • Interesting point. It the helpful points are ever used, voting on a closed thread probably would be helpful.

    Oh, and please don't continue a message from the subject. The message belong in the message area. The title/subject in a summary. It's a pet peeve of mine.
