  • Thanks. I had actually found the answer to "closed" on the faq after asking the question. Why on earth is the answers spilt between SO & meta? :S

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.
