Not only having to put up with a nanny state, everything on here is censored (as I'm sure this will be).

I write as to answer or banter with other members, not to have someone remove as an apology.... I'm quite capable of doing that myself.

Stop removing posts or I may not bother to post in future.

IT IS REALLY ANNOYING

Re: Why do post keep getting deleted

I can't remember them all, but yesterday one in engine thread and over the last week or so, I would noticed that when I log off I would have say for instance 395 posts, then log on the next day and I would have say 392.... thought I was going mad, until anwswers yesterday to ALZ327 & one to DAVYW the day before that are defo missing or removed.

Re: Why do post keep getting deleted

The only reason one of our moderators would delete a post is if it doesn't comply with any of our rules.

Perhaps a few rules that you are breaking are as follows:
- Respect Yourself and Others
- Disputes Are Not Forums Fodder
- Refrain from Offensive Behavior

I think the problem here is what you would call "banter" one of our moderators would call "dispute". The rules above have always been there and all members are encouraged to read them.

We have to keep this place as argument-free as possible for the benefit of the majority of members not involved in these arguments. I hope you understand.

Re: Why do post keep getting deleted

I delete posts for the above , and also members giving other members misleading information about there cars that could cause problem to the person asking the advice,
this is not directed at anyone in particular im also not on a mission to delete posts for no reason.

Re: Why do post keep getting deleted

i have noticed this a good few times too but it was all cleared up, i dont think it needs to be done to the extent it is done

to but it does keep the forum looking alot tidier, while most of the members do come on here for help and to socialise, there

are alot of people who would come on simply as a information source for any of their car problems, and if certain posts werent

deleted the posts would quickly go off topic because of all us "shite-talkers lol" and somebody looking for help would find

themselves reading through pages upon pages of posts to find the relevant information required, keep our "banter" to the lounge

and im sure there shouldnt be any issues

One solution to this problem is: Always make sure your posts are informative and have some value.

Re: Why do post keep getting deleted

Fair comments and some good feedback, could the system not be advise that our posts are / have been removed so as to query or understand.

Another thought, if for instance I posted and another member answered, if my post was deleted would the answer be as well, even if it might not pertain to my post, as it could be directed to another member and not the poster /postee (unsure of gammar) as it were or are they deleted at mods / admins discretion only after reading.

I not saying that paul, maybe my nanny state comment was one too far, but is does annoy members nethertheless, like I have said other people apologising for you ain't good, freedom of speech is a hot topic this week anyway, if i were lambasting members or being offensive I could understand but thats not the case.

With respect to the "banter" remark, I have cringed sometimes to the way some mods have have responded to certain members posts, why not just delete those posts under the faq.php?mode=rules#f0r0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; (without naming names). But I will if you would like to PM Alec.

Josh897 I'm sure I've had them deleted from there as well lol

Think I'll just find another site, might be easier.

Re: Why do post keep getting deleted

At the end of the day, unlike our government we don't delete things in order to promote an agenda. It's only to try to make the overall forum a better experience for everyone. It's more difficult than it sounds though Civit ;)

I doubt you'll find a forum completely void of any moderation or post deleting. It's necessary to keep the site clean and approachable to new members. It may though as you say, be done too much. That is something I'll look into.

Agreed. I will ask all moderators to notify a user via PM upon a post of their's being deleted.

ye i understand paul, just thought that if someone has a post deleted it has gone against rules, but people must think it does go with the rules thats why they put it.....so maybe being told why would help understand and reduce the amount needing to be deleted in the first place... (if that makes any sence to anyone i dont know lol) i know what i was trying to say anyway lol
