A topic that has been locked is identified by this image:Click to see original Image in a new window

The topic can still be read but no more replies are accepted. Why should this be required?

1. Some topics can extend for several pages and become too large to follow easily.
2. The point of the topic has been reached and resolved and further discussion becomes irrelevant or confusing.
3. The moderator decides to close the topic due to poor conduct or sensitive disclosures.

You can set a signature for every post you will make in this site. In order to achieve this, you have to select the Edit Account menu item of the User Menu. This will bring you to a page where you can edit your profile. If you scroll down a bit, you'll see a row called Signature:
User Profile : Signature

This is where you should write the text you'd like as your signature.

Also, if you'd like your signature to be attached to every post you make on this site, make sure to check the Always attach my signature box.

Don't forget to hit the Save Changes button at the end of the page.

As you can see on the image below, the User Menu contains an item called Inbox.
User Menu : Inbox

Clicking on that menu item will bring you to your Inbox page. Your inbox contains all the Private Message you have received from this site.
