  1. Came across this today, I imagine this has something to do with the post being moved from an existing thread to its new place. But I found it interesting.

    For some reason and I don`t know why, the thread had been deleted by me? I gave the reason as "Not needed now" I`m at a loss to explain what happened. :confused:

    I have just undeleted it and his post count is now back to one.

    I saw it was reported, but when I clicked on the link it took me to where I got the screenshot, and you had moved it, but it appeared to me at the time as a legitimate thread, not one that I was viewing after it was softdeleted.

    I don't expect there to be any investigation into this and bug fixing, I mostly just posted it here because I thought that was interesting to see.

    Moderators see all soft-deleted threads as "normal" threads when clicking links to them.

    Ok, I guess that is what happened. I was thinking softdeleted threads behaved like softdeleted posts.
