    thread deleted

    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:

    http://www.largeformatphotography.in...-Announcements


    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.

    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.


    ...somehow I feel a deletion coming on.
