    I know the moderator log is available in the ACP but the problem with that is only administrators have access to it.

    When a thread is closed, other moderators have no idea who closed it, or when (or why).

    So instead of this:

    I propose something similar to when a thread is deleted, albeit in the thread status rather then the forum view, i.e.

    In the forum view would also work, but that would require a bigger change as currently locked threads appear identical to open threads other than the padlock icon.

    A reason for closure would also be useful, making it an option as it currently is with deleted threads.

    Tooltip for thread views. (y) Highly agree with this suggestion.

    I great suggestion which I agree with. :)

    The only problem with Tooltips is they don't work on tablets or mobiles. There are times that admins and mods will be accessing their site with just a tablet (I'm sure @Brogan can vouch for that ;) ) so for information like this it would be nice if it was available on all devices.

    I use my phone about as much as I do my computer. Personally, I wouldn't mind clicking into the thread to see what the messages were.

    One of the few moderation features XenForo has that doesn't hold moderators accountable - definitely something I'm interested in.

    As for mobile: Tooltips on the thread listing are fine by me - it's no problem to go into the thread to get more details; you'd probably do it anyway.

    How about something more descriptive than Locked ?
    Maybe hovering over the lock icon would produce a popup similar to hovering over a Title.
