The quote button is ALWAYS gone if it's locked. If you're seeing it when you're reading through it's because it hasn't been locked yet.

Not sure why this thread is in the new player help forum, did it get moved here?

The forums are fine the way they are. Could there be more functionality? Maybe but they work, I've had no issues with them and I'm sure most of the population doesn't either. Ignorance is bliss.
Thanks, I'll keep an eye out for that "tell" from now on.
TORtanic indeed. It's just like that movie that was hugely successful and made boatloads of money.
This is an MMO. Whether you play with or see the other players is irrelevant to that fact.

I've seen cases where both or at least one of the buttons is still present.

Take: http://www.swtor.com/community/showthread.php?t=3500 for example. "Post Reply" is still there. Someone would have to go all the way to page 99 before they knew it was locked.

To me, it's right on par with the magically disappearing Search button, which the feature still works.

Indeed, it was in general. meh. Help is help so I suppose it "may" be better suited in here.

Post Reply is always there locked or not but as I said, Quote is always gone on locked threads. The only time I've ever seen a quote button on a "locked thread" was when the mods locked it between the time i opened it and hit quote

The search button doesn't magically disappear, it was disabled for a time and is again.

May be the case then, none the less it's still something that should be looked into for a (enhancement) if you will.

I have no idea how many people find it annoying, I for one do, but it'd be nice to not be bothered with that here.

It's not something that's present in newer versions of vBulletin, where you'll instantly find a "Closed" or "Locked" button (depending on template) to replace "Reply", "Quick Reply", "Quote", and "Multi Quote". This is a version/template error.

For example: http://forum.teamspeak.com/showthrea...munity-Members

Notice the "Closed Thread" button and lack of reply/quote buttons

For those looking for the "search" feature, you can use http://www.swtor.com/community/search.php until it's back up

No worries,

Looks like the search function is back on the layout now. I'd still recommend that everyone bookmarks my previous link.....just incase.
