When viewing discussion topics, there is no quick way to determine whether a topic is open or closed - without clicking on each topic. I recently was wondering why no students were commenting on half of our current pinned topics - and got my answer when a student indicated that the topic was closed. I'm not sure why this happened - but it certainly has happened before - and has also happened in the other direction (a topic was supposed to be closed and it was not). It would be great to be able to confirm the status of each topic without having to click on it. As there are times when I intentionally keep a closed topic pinned, this ability would be most useful.
