I see that I can "level up" with 20 posts. But how do I? What I mean is I don't see how when after I find a post that I find the most interest in, it is soon a locked thread and I am not able to keep participating in it. This has happened quite a few times after I responded to other threads. Maybe I just do not understand how this system is handled?
I do want to participate more the way I used to in other places but most of them closed down. Or MSN closed them as well as Yahoo closing the groups that were for us. That by itself took a lot of wind out of my sails (made me feel less confident).
