Unable to Post in Stickied Threads

Travel Forums System Talk Unable to Post in Stickied Threads

I think I may know the answer already... But, could someone please explain why I am unable to post a new reply in sticked threads I originally posted? I'm guessing it's a time limit issue as it's been over 3 months since the last responses. I cannot reply to the TP Foundation thread in OT, the 3 older stickied threads in GT nor the Foundation thread in the Wiki Travel Guide Forum. I click on them and the "Post Reply" link does not appear anywhere. I can reply in the Travel Unravelled Q&A No. 4 - Guidebooks, which is also stickied.

Thank you in advance!

Threads with a last reply older than a month get an infobox saying "This thread is over a month old and though we don't recommend replying any more, it is still possible if you have something particularly awesome to add. Reply", rather than the regular reply link. I'm guessing the template for stickied threads is a bit different, and so it was missed there. Sam or Peter should be able to fix that easily when they see this thread.
Meanwhile, you can click on the reply to any thread and update the "threadid=" part in the url to the threadid of the stickied thread you want to reply to.
So http://www.travellerspoint.com/forum_reply.cfm?ThreadID=61564 for replying to the TP Foundation thread.

Thanks Sander! I figured it had to do with the time limit thing. I get the infobox with regular threads, but not with the older stickied ones. Not even a "Hey moron, post more often and this won't happen!" comment.

Thanks for the link too!! ;)
