    No. If it's anything like Facebook allowing you to disable comments... Someone can make a thread and lock it when they've said what they wanted.

    By allowing it, the right to rejoinder would be taken away. Turning discussion threads into one a sided plead whenever the OP desires.

    Not a very good decision.

    No, and that goes in the same category from deleting your own posts.

    No one wants people in here make their own echo chamber.
    If a thread or a posts needs to be deleted, it will be at the staff discretion, if it was reported for that reason.
    Same for locking a thread, report and ask nicely, if the moderator handling the report considers the reason valid, they will most likely oblige to it, else, the content will stay open and visible to every forum visitors.

    If you are ashamed of your own posts/threads, then maybe work on your ability to think before posting, damage control and panic delete can stay on other social medias, thank you.

    Maybe because the mods are the ones enforcing the rules?
    What point are you trying to prove with this contradiction? lol

    I see no reason why normal users should be able to lock their own threads. This is a forum, a place for discussion, letting people decide when discussion can happen and when it stops in their own threads is counter-productive to the point of this forum.

    If someone wants a thread locked, they can simply report it to the mods and have it locked.

    If we locked our own threads we can actually chose HOW OUR CONTENT GOES

    Instead of locking your own thread, you can do the bigger brain move and ban your own account
