Okay, I'm catching up from August 15th on.
John explained there is a lock icon now at the top of the message, in front of the subject line.
However, there is still a reply option at the bottom of the post, and I thought there was going to be a change to that, I thought it was supposed to say "locked" or "this thread is locked" or "locked topic."
Am I missing something here? Clicking on the reply link doesn't do anything, but I thought it wasn't supposed to be there at all.
