When heated discussions or flame wars break out, you can lock conversations on issues, pull requests, and commits permanently or until cooler heads prevail.
It's appropriate to lock a conversation when the entire conversation is not constructive or violates your community's code of conduct or GitHub's Community Guidelines.
While a conversation is locked, only people with collaborator permissions can add comments.
- Optionally, write a comment explaining why you're locking the conversation.
- In the right margin of the issue or pull request, or above the comment box on the commit page, click Lock conversation.
- Read the information about locking conversations and click Lock conversation on this issue, Lock conversation on this pull request, or Lock conversation on this commit.
- When you're ready to unlock the conversation, click Unlock conversation.
