That makes sense David - and presumably as it carries a lot of pics, if locking mainly text threads speeds the loading a bit, then locking picture threads will do that even more.

We certainly lock and start new picture threads on the other forum I'm a member of.

We're certainly getting an early spring here - wild plum and cherry blossom is out and celandine and crocuses are in flower on the roadsides ... I've also seen a whole bank of wild primroses blooming in sheltered spot. 

what are these ?

Saw some smiling up at me yesterday in the sunshine - I know that spring's here when I see the celandine flowering.

I know they're a PITA in the wrong place, but in the right place ... what a joy

G'day Pat

I was thinking that nearly 6C was quite warm for an overnight temperature in February!!!

It's usually around freezing at night at this time of year.
