ok so I kinda understand why threads are being locked but instead of just locking them straight away and not giving people chance to comment (like myself who now cannot comment on the thread where I got destroyed) why don't you leave them open and wait?
Moderating is about watching and adjusting, giving out warnings and bans and NOT about being all controlling. players aren't going to bother coming here coz there's now no point and so this universe will surely die.
although the boards are a different "department" to the game, surely you can take the concerns of the players to the correct department? we've all tried the ticket system and that is failing too.
