When I post a question, I usually browse through any topics I know how to help with so I can help others. Gives me something to do and it's nice to "break even" I guess I usually look for topics with 0 replies or 1 reply to see if they haven't been helped yet.
Since I'm usually looking through the beginner/intermediate areas, a lot of those turn out to be people who double-posted, got moved, etc, and it's easy to miss the little lock icon. My question is this: is there, or can there be made, a way to hide locked topics? Or perhaps give them a grey background or something?
