    There are so many gems in threads such as the Wakefield OG thread that I can no longer quote. Years-old callbacks are often amazing but you can't do that via a quote in a locked thread. Please?

    You can do it, it's just a pain in the ass.

    You have to manually create the quote information which means copying the text, and finding the post and member number.

    QUOTE="Heatwaves, post: 938838, member: 2088"

    If you don't care about it leading back to the OG post, you can do this instead:

    QUOTE=jvanaus]If you don't care about it leading back to the OG post, you can do this instead:[/quote

    Just fix the quote thing [] and you're there. It doesn't tag anyone, but it does give original credit to the poster.

    Is that the point of locking a thread?

    The point of locking a thread is to get the last word in. I would use it several times a day if I were mod.
