question for moderators-how to close a thread?

I just recently posted a new thread & no one is replying. Does anyone know how to close a thread or do the moderators or owner have to do it themselves?

I think the moderators are the only ones who can close a thread.

Give it some time, people may eventually post to it.

I think it is:

varying topic thread-october & halloween

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

This is a varying topic thread of the month for everyone besides me,so feel free to vary this topic about october & halloween (couldn't figure what topics this thread should be on concerning this month so i made it a varying topic thread of the month as a suggestion for everyone here)


To say the least, it looks like there are quite a number of posts in that thread now. Maybe some people were hesitant to post anything in there because they might be banned from the thread for one reason or another. The thread is alive and well now.

FYI, People: There's a big difference between closing a thread and deleting a thread.

Closing a thread only happens on rare occasion when the whole thread seems to have gotten out of hand.

Deleting a thread is something a moderator can do, or the creator of the thread can delete their original post and the thread will disappear, or so I've heard.

But thanks for not deleting your Oct/Halloween thread, Matt!! It's gonna be a good one.
