Basic Forum Language.
I often see topics that have questions like, "What is a Locked Topic?". Well, this guide is for you. This guide will describe Forum language. Don't post a topic asking what LOL means or something. It will more than likely be locked. I would enjoy feedback, and suggestions as well!

Basic Forum Language

Post: A reply/start of a topic. You find these in threads.

Thread: A thread is a topic on a board. Such as this.

Sticky: A thread that has been "stuck" to the top of the page. Only Moderators and Administrators can sticky topics.

Announcement: These are the same as stickies, except they are ALWAYS located above stickies.

Locked Thread: These threads have been locked, and only administrators and moderators can post in this topic.

Moved Thread: A thread that has been moved to a different board.

Junior Moderator: These moderators have control over all of the boards, but can only make topics Stickied. They are marked by a bold, orange name.

Senior Moderator: The Senior Moderators have the same powers as Junior moderators do with the addition of being able to ban members. Sr. Mods have red colored usernames.
