Ok first things first, this is not, repeat NOT a personal attack or anything of the sort. i was just wondering, has somthing changed? in the months i was posting on BW forum i didnt get a single post deleted or closed, and never once attracted the wrath of a scary mod. and yet i have been posting on Freddies House for less than a week, and already a (in my opinion) perfectly reasonable post of mine has been closed because <a moderator> "doubt(s) people have much more to add to the debate but if you insist on doing so please do it in the existing thread... this ones getting closed." now this post was in teh 'feedback' area, not in DAOC general or anywhere else that could be considered the wrong place. and yet it got closed because there was already another thread dedicated to something similar. to be fair, i was trying to make a point about something related but on a slightly different thing, and even if i had of posted in the other thread then i wouldnt have been heard among the other load of people posting there, theres already a good 4 pages on that thread and i was just trying to ask a simple question and beable to discuss teh answer. answering a thread then closing it before i can reply (unless the person who posted is obviosly trying to do something wrong) is a bit off considering i wasnt doing anything wrong by asking the question i did, and tbh wanted to reply to the ppl who had answered. i ask again, has somthing changed? i am not attacking anyone when i say this, but i think that at the moment it seems as tho threads are being closed left right and center due to FH's seemingly 'spam-aphobic' outlook. a thread that is just for fun, even if its not particualy making a life changing point but still makes ppl laugh, whats wrong with that in another post in the feedback area someone else is attacking ppl who use do 'pointless posts'. but whats wrong with that? does every post have to make a point? cant a few people just have a laugh in a thread? perhaps it would be worth it making a new area called 'just for a laugh' where posts are only moderated for the usual nasty stuff and or legal things, but left the pointless as it is. to me atleast, (non violent/nasty)pointless posts are funny, they are worth reading just for to laugh, for example Tohtori's (where ever he may be) posts, they where genuinly funny. closing or deleting them just stops the oppotunity for ppl to have fun posting on a thread. is that so bad PS. This is aimed as a question to the eOT crew. Not as a flame/critism/etc at any of the mods.
