A little more control, please.
This is quick.
I would like to know if it would be possible for the powers at be to grant a bit of control over the treads we create. specifically the power to lock a thread that you have created your self. ??
I'm not suggesting to take the power away from the moderators, merely to extend it as a courtesy to the creators of a thread.
Thank you for your time and effort in this matter.

I'm not sure if that's such a good idea. Say you have someone who creates a thread with the intention of pushing a proposal and that proposal is repeatedly debunked. The OP might then in a hissy fit have the last word and then lock it.
No, I think it's best left to the moderators.

Imagine a religious spammer flooding the boards with closed threads containing bible verses.
Somebody wants the last word in a debate......post, and quickly close the thread.
On the other hand, one thing I would love to be able to do is "rename" threads.

I'm afraid that this option will stay moderators' privilege like on the other discussion boards.
If member think that his/her thread reached its 'maximum', the best option is to ask for its closing via PM to the subforum moderator or if he/she is not available, to the supermod or admins.
Or it could be the simple request in the thread itself.
