Title says it all most of the glitch threads are locked even ones posted this month. No wonder people keep making new threads to ask questions about working glitches

Edit: Admin reply here.

I wasn't even aware that this was happening. It definitely shouldn't be anyways but as long as the higher ups have noticed I'm sure it'll be remedied soon enough.

The problem is that most of the mods don’t play the game, so when things are reported as patched by numerous people, they’ll end up locking it. It’s not really thier faults as much as it is people’s faults for attempting to make things “private” even after a public release. If you see one that’s marked as patched, but isn’t, report it with some proof and the problem will be remedied.

If you’re sure they aren’t patched, report them like I said. If threads are locked and tagged as patched, they should be moved into the archive section anyway.

Not talking about the archive talking about all the working glitches in the main forum

Yes, and my recommendation is still the same. Report them, if they’re unpatched they’ll be corrected, if they’re patched they should be moved to the archive.

This at really has nothing to do with patched or not patched. It's mostly to do with the Locking of the thread itself. Threads that should not be locked are locked

Lmfao noone is gonna sit there reporting 17.1 pages of working glitches to be unlocked and i believe i alread said i reported my own thread a few time now and it keeps getting locked in a day or less. So reporting them is a waste of time. Anyway dude already said that its on the list of things being fixed

I have a feeling it's a case of one of the mods accidentally clicked the ticker, and didn't realize it
 
But then you bring up the case of being Relocked after being unlocked

When a thread is patched, it’s locked. So when you’re talking about a locked thread you’re talking about a patched one as well.

If you felt the need to bring it up, you must be willing to go through and tell the mods which ones you believe to not be patched and deserving of being unlocked. If you’re not willing to do so, then there’s nothing that will happen because, as I’ve stated, the mods don’t really play the game, and if they do, they don’t glitch much.

It’s a team effort, the mods can only do so much. They appreciate help from the community when they need it, as long as it’s within the rules.

Report it to be unlocked, provide evidence. That’ll solve your problem.

I actually believe that most of this is down to a new add-on recently implemented that locks threads automatically if there hasn't been any replies in a certain time. Regardless, it's been brought up and will be dealt with so let's not turn it into something it's not.

Many assumptions were made regarding what was going on here. P Post Malone and T The Irish Assassin relayed the correct information.

Threads that were previously inactive for at least 2 weeks were automatically being locked. I've since increased the cut off to 6 weeks. If a thread has not been replied to in this time, I see it fair enough to temporarily lock the thread. The thread is free to be re-opened if you report it. I've unlocked most of the threads, but those that have not been replied to within the last 6 weeks will re-lock after a little bit of time.

It is simply an experiment we are running through the GTA sections to aide with easing moderation and improving organization. Depending on how it works out (which I am monitoring), the time will be modified, or removed from the section. Nothing to fear.

If you guys would like to continue this in a better place, please feel free to include me in a PM, or post a Suggestion Box thread and tag me. I would be your go-to point of contact for this matter, as it's my experiment :tongue:.

Official notification of these changes, as well as some others, will be coming soon.
