Are topics not supposed to lock automatically at 990 posts? One in my forum just didn't...

Thanks. It depends on your posts per page. At default, I think it locks at 990 posts at around pages 66-67. However, if you've changed it then it could be different.

I have 50 posts per page, so would that make it different? Does it lock on a certain page count as opposed to a certain post count?

Yes, I think so. Somewhere around pages 66-67...

But I'm not completely sure. Smile

The lock has worked before at 990 if I remember correctly though.

Wouldn't worry about it. If it doesn't lock it hasn't reached the limit, and if it has it will do what it needs too.

It would be nice to have an actual figure though. I assumed the lock would be uniform across the boards. I've read in the FAQ that it is 990 and that seemed to work for me most other times, it's strange it didn't this time.
