I just made a thread asking who or what is pedobear which has been locked.

Is this a banned subject or was it locked for some other reason?

two things that may help you:
1. Search
2. Bar

It's very productive to use those two steps as one

Pedobear is a bear that's a paedophile. It's a meme on places like 4chan and the like, and I'm guessing they're banned subjects here. It's usually best to just google questions like this, as you'll no doubt get flamed or warned by a mod.

blocked because you're an idiotfallingforever,

his thread wasn't blocked, it was locked (closed).

and even if you hadn't left yourself open to looking foolish,
it has become established practice to exercise polite behaviour in the Newbie forum.
please show a bit of self-restraint when posting here.


Thanks dude! :Dplease don't make threads asking why your threads are locked.

read the rules in the announcement at the top of the Pit for general guidelines.
and any announcement or stickies in the forum where the locked thread was placed.

also, read the FAQ here in the newbie forum.

IF you're still confused as to why your thread is locked, THEN PM a Mod for that forum and ask them politely for an explanation. the Mods are very helpful, but you have to do your part too, k?

pedobear is not really banned so much as it is common knowledge.
the search bar or google would have answered your simple question.
try to be a little more independent / resourceful.
make threads that start intelligent conversation or at least require a bit of thought and your threads will stay open.

speaking of locked threads, this one will probably be locked, too.
it really never needed to be made.

i hope this helps.

When I start a thread I always ask myself, "Will people enjoy discussing this, and does it have actual substance?".

If I have a question, I'll search google or the forum.

if only everyone was like this.

threadstarter: please only make a thread to ask a question like this if you can't find your answer by googling or searching the forum :)
