Why is my topic locked?

My topic 'The MAP syntax' was locked. Why? Is it because it's in process of moving it?

No. Mods do not need to lock a topic to move it. Probably because you keep asking things that you can easily figure out yourself, like "What's the MAP for Wolfram?"

Code: Select all

I don't know why it was locked, actually. Perhaps some other moderator got tired of reading my long-winded answers.

Still, it seems like that thread has turned into a reasonable summary of how to work with MAP syntax, so I've unlocked it again and will move it to Other Cellular Automata, as requested. Anyone who knows why it was locked should maybe let me know --
