    This has happened to me before, but on the old forum (Before they updated it). I tried again later and it seemed to put itself right.

    They have locked replies in the User Submitted News forum; the last dozen or so topics have zero replies. I guess they just don't want people discussing stuff in there.

    ):
    They shouldn't lock replies in the user-submitted forum, since many of those things never make the front page and therefor we cannot discuss them anywhere besides that subforum.

    Maybe the powers that be on GBATemp got fed up with some people making spammy replys.

    Good point guys.

    In the future, topics that don't get deemed newsworthy will be moved to their respective forum where replies can be made, and a link topic will be left in user submitted news. [​IMG]

    edit: and yes, we recently turned off the ability to reply to topics there as it was annoying when we made a new topic on the portal about the news and half or all the discussion was left/made in the original post.

    Wouldn't it be simpler to allow replies, and just lock the user posted topic when you post it in the "real" news section?

    We'd rather have all discussion in a topic where people can contribute and read all posts. We don't want to seal discussion away in a closed topic...
