Why are topics Locked?
« on: Friday 29 October 04 00:24 BST (UK) »
Topics on Rootschat are locked by moderators to stop people replying to them.  This is usually because the replies should be put elsewhere.

Lookup Offers are locked because replies,  or Requests should be posted as a new topic.

Replies to Lookup Offers on the county Offers boards should be placed in the corresponding county Request board.
i.e.  An offer in the Essex Lookup Offers board should be replied to in the Essex Lookup Requests board.

Replies to Offers in the main Census and Lookup Offers board should be made as a new topic in the Census and Resource Lookup Requests board:

We have arrived at this method of Offers and Requests after some trials with other methods,  and this is the most efficient way to deal with the large number of requests RootsChat has every day.
