I recently noticed that this forum makes no differentiation between threads locked by inactivity and threads locked by moderators, if the thread is over 90 days inactive.

Was this by design? or, as i assume, threads are being 'double-locked' as they hit 90 days inactive by the system, because nobody thought to check to see if they were already locked first?

where did you notice that Laughing

and for how many threads get made every day and rather quickly forgotten I doubt it any hit to the forums performance to just lock the thread, probably even better that way as it doesn't have to do a conditional lock.

on a side note I think "Locked Evil or Very Mad" is the best locked message ever

I wasn't, just referencing a prior "annoying" experience but lets not get off topic

if (topicDate < date-90) {
if (topic != locked)
lock
} else meh!

vs

if (topicDate < date-90)
lock

yes, but keep in mind that they could run a script every hour to check all posts or something, which would mean

if (threadarray[i].islocked = true)
threadarray[i].remove
else if (threadarray[i].inactivetime = 90)
threadarray[i].lock
else
{i++}

basically if it has to check each thread more than once for its inactive date then this would work better..
