What's the lock mean in off topic?


When posting, when you see the off topic category there is a lock to its left. All of the other topics don’t have a lock. Why?


People who don’t have a forums account can’t read any thread in that category


People need to be trust level 1 in order to read topics in #off-topic.


Access is restricted, because people sometimes talk a bit too candidly in there for it to be open.


Lock means that you need an account to go to the offtopic secrion
