When a forum discussion has been locked in any way the message "This discussion has been locked so you can no longer reply to it. "
This is poor usability. There is nothing to tell you what you should just. It is useless if you only tell people what not to do.
The issue is, the appropriate 'call to action' is different depending on whether the thread just timed out, or has been locked by a moderator. Ideally you would want something like:
- "This discussion has been locked so you can no longer reply to it. If you want to dicsuss this topic again, please start a new thread."
- "This discussion has been locked by the moderator. Please consider carefully before raising the same topics again."
However it is impossible to do this (even using Langconfig) becuase the same string is used in both places. Really, these need to be two separate strings.
