Maybe I'm just being picky here - but I can't help feeling it would be nice if a mod locks a thread for them to provide some feedback as to why - either in the locked thread, or as a PM to the OP.
I have posted a couple of threads recently which have been locked with no explaination at all. One example from this evening is http://hotukdeals.com/item/415414/wanted-cd-albums-oasis-rem-tbs-etc
I have since begun PM communication with a different mod regarding this, who is going to investigate and get some feedback for me - but surely it would be simply curtesy for the mod to provide this feedback at the time they lock the thread?
I suspect the reason this one was locked was that I didn't provide an itemised list of the items I wanted, however I had stated very clearly exactly what I wanted - Ie. all albums by the artists that I listed. Obviously not been confirmed that this was the reason, but it does seem most likely.
Anyway, I'm wittering now, the point I was trying to make is that it would be nice if the mods could provide feedback in one way or another when locking threads.
