    This is genius. Don't really need it, but it's still so good that it should be part of Xenforo core.

    Disagree. Seems pointless to me.

    When we post resources, some of us like to reserve the first couple posts of a thread for updates.

    Resources have a dedicated function for that.

    I know. Some of us prefer the traditional way though.

    Can we change the word to be something else instead of "Posting"

    I still can't see a use for this. Obviously @DRE and @AndyB can.

    Regardless, you're doing a good job with resources recently and I have thought about installing 1 or 2. This isn't one of them though.

    Not for everyone but I could have put this to use on my forum back when I was posting a "build thread" about an old truck I was restoring.

    It was a thread that followed the restoration process as I went along from start to finish so every so often, I would need to update it with some new progress photo's and the story to go with it. This would in many cases take a few posts to complete as there is a limit of photo's allowed per post. I didn't want anyone replying or posting in between my updates.

    So I too went in and "reserved" a few spots by replying to myself a few times, then went back and edited them with the pics and info.

    This add on would have been a perfect way to avoid going through this. (y)

    The word posting in a generic thread title such as "Posting on Facebook While At Work" is too commonly used. Something like -TCP- (Thread Creation in Progress) is not commonly used so just adding -TCP- could work better.

    I would use moderation tools to lock the thread instead of using this addon

    seriously, I have no reason to reserve posts.. if and when I choose to do that I think it would be prudent to maybe do it this way:
    1. do NOT list the forum in the nodelist (nobody can view the contents until I think that is is ready)
    2. I can edit contents of all my posts to my heart's content, edit my first post when it is required.
    3. plan everything out first! prepare all of my info BEFORE I create the thread.
    share your thoughts on this issue ... enlighten me please

    All forums are different - some of my members will use this. Not often but useful at times. I'd like an option for 24, 48 or 72 hour expiry!
