    I'm not sure where to ask this, so I'm posting it here.

    In the past, after creating a thread, there was an option shown on the main edit page in the upper right for locking (aka closing) the thread. I used this option for contest threads after the final submission date ended. I can still see the lock icon listed for older threads I created a few months ago. However, for newer threads I've created, that option doesn't appear. Is it still available? If so, how do I access that function?

    Thanks

    I've noticed the same issue and am not sure if it's a bug or new feature.

    When I go to create a brand new thread, the options are available. But it won't let me change the status of threads already existing.

    Edit: For example, even this thread. Even though I'm an admin of the club, I can no longer close other people's threads.

    This sounds like a bug; I have a hard time believing this change was intentional. You may want to make a post in the Bug Reports thread.
