    I'm pretty sure one of the writers said they were bringing it back, and they brought it back for a week and it died again. . .
    On a side note, for anybody talking crap about how this shouldnt be 'front page news', he's just doing his job for writing for the site. Him giving it s 1/5 was his opinion(and a fair one at that). If you dont like the article, witch you probably knew before even opening it and decided to not read it before posting a comment, keep on reading, stop complaining.

    It is kind of weird to not even put "[Review]" in the headline, as if it's a news story.

    My 10pence worth...For all the people who knock what is written about and put on the front page,why don't you create a section,ie:- Readers Reviews, so that people who find and try tweaks they find useful,irrespective of whether its cosmetic or not,can post a review,then once a week ModMyi could choose ones with the most comments and place them on the front page....with a link to all the other reviews...democracy in action...lol

    I don't understand why you care so much about it? It's not like it's hurt you in any way. If Kyle and Cody didn't think it was front page news then they wouldn't have let Anthony post it up, but obviously it did make it. No one forces you to read the article, click on it, or comment on it. There's no use in complaining about it, if you don't like it then don't read it. It's that simple.

    The lock icon doesn't really bother me much, but I guess if your picky and don't like seeing it this would be useful to you. Thanks Anthony!

    People always get so annoyed by things that expel far less energy than their complains about those very things.

    We have a "Members written news" section, that would work there. If it took off, we could see about a special forum for it as you suggested.

    There was a winter board enabled mod doing the same thing, NoLockIcon (I think via BigBoss), that was released a couple weeks back. Nice to have options of both avenues now.

    well you know it does hurt me emotionally to see this forum get crappier by setting the bar so low for front page news. the lower they set the bar the more it feels like a lower quality forum.
    The funny thing is kyle and cody are the "editors" but they really dont read the articles. I mean sure they do sometimes but they just repost there writers articles on the news section. wanna know why i know this? cause how many times have there been multiple of the same article or multiple writers writing the same topic. but some how the readers catch it. but the "editors" didnt catch it when they read it. whenever someone says no one forces you to do anything well you know thats true. but its my feel that i love this forum and that i dont want to see it become a low quality low standard place. And you know on that note. No ones forcing you to read my comment or reply to it? so.. contradiction much?

    just sayin

    Honesty I would have just manually change he "padlock.png" to "padlock.pn".
    Icon gone.

    Better then installing yet another Mobile Sunstrate adding if ya ask me.


    PS:

    I don't know what the image is actually called. I uses "Padlock.png" as an example.


    I have seen the image within iFile before when skimming through system images so I know for a fact it can he done. All thats need to remove an icon (but still keep it there just in case) is to change .png to .pn...or basically anything bodies ".png".

    I think its called "LockStatus.png" but don't quote me on that. :/
