    Title says it all, really.
    It'd be good for when the OP thinks things are going too out of hand, and has had enough.

    You can't lock your own threads. You can report it and ask for a lock or ask a mod to do it.

    Why am I hearing that you can go to Thread Tools -> "open" then? Is that something of the past, now?

    Finding that out myself.
    Locking own threads would be nice, but then again, big threads created which aren't supposed to be locked might be locked by the OP for no good reason.

    It could be the fact that he has over 4000 posts, he can now do that. Correct me if I'm wrong.

    Moderator privileges are not awarded for post count. That would encourage spamming.

    Some threads can have special rights given to users.
    a user can be granted edition right to the first post of a thread, for maintaining guides updated while the initial user is not coming here anymore or banned for example.
    We can also provide moderation right to someone on specific thread, to maintain the order in a thread, delete illegal posts, etc.
    maybe these special moderation right in a single thread allows closing it. it's on a case basis, not a global privilege right. (for example, trusted users temporarily helping the staff in pokemon release thread)

    You can create your own title by hovering over your name in the top right, clicking "Personal Details", and editing the "Custom Title." Just because it says I'm GBAtemp's Official frill-necked lizard, that doesn't mean it's actually true. Although you'd never know...
