Who/why lock thread?

I was enjoying a thread with my coffee, posted some childhood thoughts successfully, then tried again with another comment and the thread was locked.
In the space of 3 mins. Why? How? Did I do something?
Please tell me if it was my fault.
Sorry if it was.
:frown:

    It hit the 500 post max if it's the "I remember that" thread.

    You broke the thread!!

    I have seen some threads that say "title ....part 2". So I Imagine there are continuations of threads that are very popular

    This is MFP. Moderators do not exercise consistency in their locking of threads here.

    i personally think staff does a great job considering they are unpaid volunteers...

    I'm glad you think so; however, they have had better moderators (who were also unpaid volunteers...)in the past who were consistent with the rules, strikes, and locking of threads.

    ETA: and this thread technically violates the Airing of grievances rule... Wonder how long before the lock?

    Technically she didn't know. She wasn't mad at the mods for locking a thread, she didn't know where it went. But yes, it will be locked.

    The post about the mods' competency, however, is a blatant violation of airing grievances.

    Thanks for the answer, ie locks after 500 posts. I just hit unlucky i suppose.

    And I wasn't complaining, just curious/worried that I was unwittingly rule-breaking.

    And all the volunteers who do this are great, in my opinion. :love:
