In the pastel section I see certain forums...e.g the WIP section has a lock over the icon and I see that I cannot create a thread in that forum...why is that?

Normally locked forums are reference forums or archives where only the moderator is able to post.

The Pastels WIP forum shows no recent threads but it doesn't seem to have a New Thread button.

I'll check it out,

The only active sub-forums in Pastels are the Soft Pastel Studio and Gallery and Soft Pastel Talk .

The other forums contain archived threads.

To further complicate matters, due to various glitches in the system, there are a couple ways to access the pastel sub-forums. There is a further explanation regarding this in this thread:

Scroll down to post #7 and you will see in-depth directions.

I have amended the forum description to reflect the fact that it is and archive of WIP's posted in the Soft Pastel Studio.
