I recently had a thread that I created, locked.

Here's the thread: https://www.stovebolt.com/ubbthread...00/51-in-skagway-alaska.html#Post1320400

I can guess that it was locked due to the most recent replies which went way off of the original post's plans, but to just lock it, not posting why, doesn't help others understand where they might have gone wrong. Maybe it's just me.

Regards

At the risk of drawing your wrath l will offer an explanation and a suggestion for you. You are correct in that the thread had turned onto a visiting thread that was not discussing a subject within site guidelines. Second, Moderators do not have to supply explanations for actions taken. We have a specific Forum for Stovebolt Spotting Alerts, which is probably where your post should have gone. Lastly, I politely ask that you read the “Sticky Thread” at the top of the GTT Forum regarding why posts are edited, moved and deleted.
As always if you have a problem with how the site is moderated please feel free to contact editor@stovebolt.com and voice your concerns.

Support those brave men/women who stand the "Thin Blue Line" and lock up those on the wrong side of that line.

After the first post, the other posts looked like a travelog, with not much old-truck related information?
