  1. What is with the moderators closing SOO many threads. I just tried to reply to Haxors doodspeak thread about the forums, but its closed. I had a similar encounter this morning and yesterday night when trying to post on a thread. :confused:

    SO many threads ?

    SO many threads :confused:
    Other than the one specific thread you mentioned

    LiK WhAzUz UpZ WiF FoR00mZ
    & your reference about two additional threads (total 3 out of 216, threads, 1,792 posts) what are the SO many threads?
    I was gonna reply to haxor myself, but if a mod has a reason for closing a thread, I have to trust his judgement.

    Phatman shall not post :p

    We are compelled by some devine force to close every tread you want to answer to :p.

    No, I guess it is just coincidence. You should know that normaly we are not that eager to close a tread, just when necessary.

    "...a young Jedi named Darth Vader, who was a pupil of mine before he turned to evil"

    No one closes things just because they don't like you, or don't like the way you speak or suchlike.

    A thread would be closed if the subject matter was getting out of hand.

    A thread would be deleted if it seemed to be pointless.... i.e. someone's drunken or prozac motivated rant.

    All profanity is deleted on sight.

    Phat, I think someone has been playing with the "close thread" function a bit too much. :) There's been a couple of mysterious incidents (to me at least), but everyone's judgement is different.

    The post you mention is not closed NOW, but if it was, I do not understand why.

    While keeping the moderators on their toes is a good thing, you might want to try PMing the board administration instead of posting topics. It's a bit neater and cleaner.

    I've never closed any thread other than this one just to demonstrate the function.

    I see no reason why this thread was closed

    I see no reason why this thread was closed. :confused:
    I've have only closed one (1) thread, & that was in the old forum; where after a warning the factions would not stop fighting.
    It cold be error, as the new mod functions in Vb take a lilltle geting used to.
    Agreed Phat, PM your mods in that forum for quicker action. I'd like to straighten this out myself.
