Topic Completed or Lock Topic ???
« on: Sunday 06 May 18 17:32 BST (UK) »
I thought there used to be an option for people to let others know their topic was 'Completed' i.e. answered with relevant replies although it was still accessible at a later date for others who may have had an interest in that particular topic?

I now see there's only one option which is 'Lock Topic'

Is it my imagination there was a 'Topic Completed' option at one time as I'm sure I've used it in the past?

If there was the option of 'Completed' why has it been removed?

I just looked at a thread I started a few days ago, and the only option I have is 'completed'.

Are you looking at a thread on the ToT Board? That is the only one where the thread originator can lock it themselves.
