I had a thread deleted and would like to know why?
 
I had a thread I started deleted and was wondering why? It was a credit adding thread. Was I breaking any rules? I don't think I was.

yes, you cant start threads like that, but you can start thread about players with the biggest dick, go figure.

Forget it, the mods don't exactly care about us. ;)

also there are tons of thread in "chats" where you can spam to get credits, im sure the people in "1 to 1million" could use some help, or last post wins thread. go crazy in there if you want.

It was considered as spam. Bit like the increasing your post count thread that was removed last year as well.

And before you say it yes I know, Seinfeld has a point about the purpose of those other threads he mentioned above. The anomalies of life.

I forgot about the increase your post count thread. If I would remembered that one I wouldn't have started the last one. Thanks for answering my question.

I think...although this issue has been solved that the solution isn't just deleting or whatever mods do with threads that "break rules"... but to make a decent final post explaining the decision and where we can all read the reason for deletion, and then close the thread....and leave it there...at least for a while...
I mean...I would :armed: if I find one thread of mine deleted for any reason that I may not know...:shrug:
This way there might be a better communication between mods and posters...

Otherwise we'll be thinking: "These b*tch*s are deleting our threads :boxing:"

:rolls:

In the mods' defense in most cases it's fairly obvious such as in this instance. If not posters are free to PM the moderator of that particular forum/super mod for clarification

I have to disagree with that...if you leave the reason there for everyone to read...there's gonna be less chance for other people breaking the same rules and not acknowledging the reason why any thread is "deleted".
it's just my opinion, but this could work for a better understanding ,as I said before, between mods and posters.

Re: I had a thread deleted and would like to know why?
 
Sorry Denaon, I would not like your idea to give reasons or write a final post in each threads that we delete. Commenting (almost or every?) thread would mean much more work for us, and why should a hateful thread or an otherwise illegal thread stay there for everybody to read just that we can give a reason in there? Your suggestion "to make a decent final post explaining the decision and where we can all read the reason for deletion" would mean that all this crap would still stay and be readable in GM or non-tennis or wherever. IMO, only for some cases your suggestion and policy on deleted threads could be applicable and useful.
