What is the difference between "Post Locked" and "Post Closed" ?
What is meta?
- Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
- The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
- Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates
closed: no new answers can be added to a question.
locked: the post cannot be manipulated or interacted with in any way by anyone other than a moderator.
UPDATE -- to make this easier to understand, we modified lock so that when you lock a question, it also prevents new answers from being added. Locking answers behaves the same as before.
