hi admins and mods,

i'm just curious, why these "thread deleted" are still shown in the forum? yes, it's not clickable but kinda annoying.
it supposed to be sent somewhere which admins and mods can see and access right?
it cluttered the site plus it's kinda confusing/annoying. just a thought.

i run a small local forum. all deleted / spam threads or posts are sent to a place where admins and mods could only access so it won't clutter the site. so all important threads are at the top. please look at the link bellow.

for example:

thanks guys!

Different forums and individual moderators have different styles.

It's so the mods can keep score. You'll notice that they always note who did the deleting, this is so they can keep track. At the end of the year, they all have a drunken orgy and the one with the lowest number of deletions has to buy the booze, condoms, lubricants, food and etc. The one with the highest number of deletions gets his choice of orgy partner/s and species.

Actually its to justify our pay checks. If we didn't leave the evidence on the site, everyone would think we just sat around eating bon bons and drinking single malt scotch. We are afraid you would lower our substantial salary.

Bon bons with single malt?? Eaagh.

If they dared to lower your salary, Kirk, I would personally lead an international boycott of this site.

That's because you get a kickback.

I can't imagine moderating as diverse a bunch of idiots as inhabit internet forums. I'm sure there's a kick somewhere, usually resulting in a pain in the same location.


:eek: ...somehow I feel a deletion coming on.

Kirk, where you live the important decision is green or red? (re: chile, for the less privileged among us) With an Alien Amber Ale, you should be pretty content with the job.

Most smaller forums leave deleted threads visible for a short time, so that whoever started the crap thread, or whoever turned it into a pie fight, can know why their behavior was reprehensible and why they can't continue their pie fight. Saves moderators having to read a lot of angry messages like "what did you &&^$%s do to my thread??!!!", and the well-mannered people who like to check if their comments have responses can do so before the thread vanishes.

Of course that often spans follow-up threads where people start a new one to continue a locked thread, leading to more adolescent behavior, locked threads and bannings.

I'll have a Brandy Alexander, if someone is serving.

I'm not really sure. I like chocolate with a nice strong cup of dark roast coffee, but bon bons are more than just chocolate. Maybe Kahlua?

I like a redhead with my bon bons.

LOUIS XIII de Rémy Martin is even better. One shouldn't let the $2,200 price tag deter them from the pleasure.

Heck... at that price why not buy two and share with a friend!

Agreed. And Ralph, I'm your good friend. A much better friend than Brian.

Yes, with a $2,200 cognac, as suggested by most good etiquette books, one should use a clean glass...

My preference for scotch glasses is Glencairn; did not know that Cooke also made brandy glasses although knuckler handles would seem odd... :D

I'd like a set of Schott-Jena scotch glasses. Maybe I could get a bunch of old Zeiss Tessars, junk binoculars and so on and give the elements to a glassblower friend to make into glasses.

Make them from lanthanum glass and add a little zip to your aperitif.

Hey, there's a thought! I have a big chunk of neodymium glass, and I could get some thorium glass from old Pentax lenses. Thanks!
