Spike - perhaps extending moderator powers would help solve the problem? I think only the super-mods and Admin groups can (at the moment) actually transfer posts between forums. If the current moderators were given access to moderate more than just the one forum, that might help solve the problem and also reduce the workload for those currently able to do the thread bouncing. I'm certainly not keen on a locked forum. The only forum I'd like to see locked is the proposed installation guide forum. That's solely to keep it nice and clean and clear. And if the help forum idea works, then that would be the place to post problems anyway. Morpheus - understood.
