You as a user cannot. Even I as a moderator cannot do that. That is a function reserved for for the owner of the board.

If you are referring to old threads that are closed to prevent them getting resurrected, they are closed automatically after a period of time, three months I think.

Hey,

StuartS is correct. All threads lock 8 months after they have been posted (this has been increased from the 3 months it used to be). Otherwise, there is no way for anyone, including myself, to lock a thread.

The thing to do in those circumstances is to come back and post a message along the line of "Thanks very much, problem solved."

I make it a point to reply to threads that are basically done because I know it annoys someone.
