WHY????

General Discussion
"This topic is unavailable"

Is this the new "Topic has been deleted" message?
I like to read the forums, especially on my lunch break, for entertainment. Recently there has either been lots of "violating" threads or the forum mods are having some really bad days.

Early this week I opened tabs on about 5 threads and within 5 minutes of that, 4 were gone.

BAM!

Which stinks because I didn't get to see how bad, or good, they were. :(
"Metadiscussion".

Correct: "General Discussion: Discuss World of Warcraft".

Wrong: "General Discussion: Discuss what people discuss about World of Warcraft".

really? because it seems totally pointless to me

Does not matter. You break a rule, yo can be auctioned.

Also, discussing forum moderation is a no-no.

I've noticed constructive threads that I genuinely can't think of even a weak reason why they should be deleted get deleted and conversely threads that break tons of rules that go on for pages and pages.


this^

Mods can delete whatever thread they see fit.

Making a thread about a deleted thread will do nothing more than net you a suspension. Doubly so for the all-caps title.
Also it is their rules, they can do pretty much whatever they want with the forum. They could make a rule stating a post must have the word "cookie" in it at least once or it would be deleted, and it would be so.

Sounds like a very interesting collection of posts there. All the misfits and outlaws.

You mean "threads" not "forums".

I personally think it's dumb. They lock threads with no explanation given too.

You have no idea what it is you did wrong. You don't learn. Broken feedback loop.

This thread breaks so many rules. if your expecting anything less then a delete and a temp forum ban then you've lost your mind.


Have you lost your mind? A ban for what, asking a question? Have we really come to this. Legitimate topics getting deleted and people banned , but the most stupid inane ones go to 26 pages. Somewhere along the way we entered Stepford.

Mort, put me out of my misery. Was in Zangarmarsh, Turalyon or my brief stint at Zul'jin? I KNOW that I know you, and yet I can't remember from which server.. /beats head on desk...
