I've found a few cases of thread locks etc. to be a bit perplexing. I believe that when a thread is locked, moved or merged, the moderator responsible should post about their decision and to an extent, why they made the decision.For an example, this thread(http://empireminecraft.com/threads/a-tribute-to-nick5013.36529/) was locked, but I don't exactly see why. It may classify as a good bye thread, but I personally wouldn't. In none of the statements about good bye threads(have there been any?) has it stated that another member posting a thread is disallowed. This'd be easy to do. And it would work as a way of reenforcing into others what is allowed and not allowed.
