Many subforums of boinc questions forum are locked, e.g., boinc manager. I am logged in. I cannot respond to any existing message. I think this is as evidenced to the locked icon that shows on boinc manager many other subforums also. Hovering over message also says locked.

I think, within a message, I can only send send a private message to a responder but cannot post a response on the thread.

Someone see if I am right? If I am right, I hope someone can unlock these subforums.

thanks, tom kosvic

Threads are automatically locked after 90 days to defer spammers from necromancing ancient threads to post their crap into. If you want a thread reopened, go to the thread, click on the red X in the bottom (white X on a red background) and ask in the following window if a moderator will please reopen that thread. But you have to be quick, because the server will relock the thread within several hours if not immediately posted in.

Edit: and mind, the moderators are also busy elsewhere, they don't necessarily keep an eye on their email all the time so it may take a little while for one to react.
