Following up on this , shouldn't reputation be locked to prevent further reputation if a topic gets locked?
In a personal experience, I locked a topic because it became too out of control, but the out of control person kept loosing reputation. This was behind all of us, but whenever someone found it they lost rep. Topics locked should be exactly the same as they were when they were first locked, period.
I personally think the (+) and (-) buttons should just be greyed out in a locked topic. Following up on that, maybe it would be cool to grey out the (+) and (-) buttons on any posts you cannot edit, such as your own. Only if the (-) is disabled board-globally should it disappear...
Is it just me? :P
Would you guys like to see this?
Funny things is Charles can't be fired. He's president. And personally, I like the response. It's honest and true, especially after the user is pouting and the support team cannot do anything else because they've done as much as they could (and gone out of their way to try and help out by explaining), and it's not IPS's fault (if it every was) anymore.
Oh, and good luck finding a better company. ;)
Simply put: If your ticket is noncritical, why does it need to be answered so fast? And, if it's marked critical, it will get answered appropriately.
