# Should we lock community check-in posts on Meta once we open a new one?

We have community check-ins on Meta that represent a snapshot of the time they describe. These snapshots are useful when one contextualises what the metacommunity perceives as pressing incidents, remarkable developments, and concurrent issues of that period.

There is nothing that stops users from voting after we close the most recent check-in when we open a new one - this distorts the votes and makes contextualising unnecessary difficult.

But we have a tool that preserves these snapshot and freezes them in time: Should we lock questions with once we open a new one?

• I'm not sure how to fix it, but your 'community-check-in' tag takes me to a non-existent tag on the main site, not the meta-tag. – Pyrotechnical Apr 12 at 20:22
• @Pyrotechnical: It's just a matter of changing [tag:name-of-tag] to [meta-tag:name-of-tag]. I've fixed it now :) – V2Blast Apr 12 at 22:20
