It got deleted? It's probably one of the more constructive side of things i seen in a while here

Damn, at least give out reason or so.

It was a constructive thread .. unless someone derailed it and it was taken down instantly .. although surely they could just delete an offending post/

@ObiphanKenobi @mademoisail

can we have that thread back, having one person derailing the thread doesn't make it extremely constructive for when it was still on topic

Agree, especially when we have a sad excuse of a "thread" and "discussion" running about without any sort of moderation

Why do you keep deleting threads Instead of just putting them in “locked threads”?

Yeah, some threads are useless, but the DD thread had a lot of good stuff before someone started saying stuff on the last page

Removing a thread that had some really valuable information because it devolved a little isn't great - heavy moderation, or even a lock, would be much better, so long as the good info remains for players to consider.

Question to the mods.

How do you decide if a thread should be deleted instead of locked?

I’ve been around the forums for a few years, and up until this year-ish, most... inappropriate threads were locked instead of deleted, change in policy?

The thing I don't like is the fact that they remove threads without warning.

It's the without warning/notice thing that I cannot accept.

 

UPDATE. That thread is now back without the mods saying anything.

Please, communication is key for good relationships.

This thread just got locked as well.  This makes me a bit sad, because I just wrote up the linked post, something I thought was a really helpful response to answer the OP's questions.  I also thought it would be something that most players could get a bit out of, and that we could all discuss in terms of tactics.

At least it only got locked and not removed, so I can't really complain about that aspect I guess!

A new discussion might be useful as people can discuss tactics there, literally anyone here can start up a thread better than him

Remember when mods commented at the bottom of threads on why they were locked?

Or is that not allowed now because it is basically saying who was doing the wrong thing?

This is one reason why I don't like giving tips or detailed replies on problematic threads. 

Because there is a high chance that my time and effort posting a reply will be wasted when that threads gets deleted or thrown into the dustbin of the forums that is the deleted thread section.

It is glad to be back, I am sure you guys wondered what has happened, so I will just provide a brief summary,

Thought I would be transparent about this and serve as a warning to my EN Community/Friends
My profile's Location had something controversial where the CN Community did not find it appealing,
Said player reported to someone which that certain someone thought it would be best to nuke my account for it,
>No, I was not reached out about it, there were no reasonings provided on the ban page
>I kinda knew what was going on after someone told me that someone was on my profile from the other community which I did conclude to myself it might be my Location
Contacted that someone via Discord, redirected to CS, ticket made, to no avail despite opening under the correct tab "Forum Ban",
Got in touch with a Senior Forum Mod, got in a touch with an Admin,
Some chitty chat chat,

And yeap, here I am back, but at what cost? Well, it does seem all my threads and replies got nuked along with it.

Ill get back to rework my threads I made previously.
Cheers guys for your concern.

Ah...seems like they were triggered by things like this again, quite a pity that WG decided to wipe everything away

I would thank you all above for noticing about it and made a small discussion about the matter.

Will be reworking on my threads soon,
And as always, credit is due where credit is due
