I think we should be notified when Apr. 14th, 2009 @ 10:34 AM Reply

Your thread gets deleted. My post got deleted one time and I'm not complaining about that, but once i finished posting the page took a bit to load and when it loaded my thread wasn't there. I thought my internet had an error and the thread never posted so i re-made it and got banned for remaking a thread. I think we should get notified when our threads get deleted like when a comment gets deleted for whatever reason. Just to avoid this mishap.

i hope i wont get banned for this...

If you want an automated system put in place, I suggest going to this thread to suggest it.

For the most part however, I think the path to take is simple; don't remake topics.
If it was deleted, then it probably was for a reason, and you shouldn't make the same thing again. Not noticing it existing (like the OP states) is an exception to an extent, but you'd have to have a pretty slow internet connection for that to happen; and when you think about the topic you've made, whether it was delete-worthy usually becomes apparant.
If it wasn't deleted, then it probably fell off the front page of the forum. Check your recent posts, and bump it if you think it warrants more discussion. But remaking something already there is stupid too.

And don't bump more than once or twice, you'll just be annoying people

If you're confused, you could always ask the mods online whether or not your topic was deleted (and if so, why), but be civil about it.

But if we're notified when our thread gets deleted, the mods will have not have our confusion of wondering where it went to laugh at.

I agree. I do not understand why the only automated PM is for Review deletion?

We could use it for; "Your Submission has been blammed/saved," "You are eligible to vote for the best of March," "Your Audio has been added to the Portal," etc.

I would love that.

Or when it gets locked or posts deleted from it. Because it's really unfair if someone makes a mistake such as you.

I've never had a thread deleted. I only post things that are fun, merit discussion, or are just plain awesome

If you do this, you will win at the internet and you wont have to worry.

Just don't make a new topic unless you think it will reach at least two pages. That's my rule of thumb.

You post in/make some of the worst topics around. Topics that I wouldn't waste the time it takes to read let alone reply to. You and others like you are drawn to them like moths to a flame. And I know for a fact you've had a thread deleted before as well.

He was talking to me. However, I will grant him that I AM guilty of attempting to post in most topics that I see. I sometimes rush this process, resulting in +1 posting. I'm sorry. When I joined, I swore that I wouldn't do that. I'll do better, I promise.

As for the topics I make, Meh. I enjoy them. I'm here to have fun, and they don't break any rules, so why not? It's not like I make a whole bunch of them. (Although today, I did reach my quota for the first time.)

Everyone makes that mistake now and then and it only happened 3 or 4 times, not many people actually looks at the rules while posting to ensure they don't break one or actually remember all the rules (except for admins and mods usually), anyone is bound to break one once in a while and that happened to me, but i just thought what happened next was unfair and if there was an automatic system to notify you about it when it happens that problem would never happen again, if not then less than it usually does.

It was never a contest.

I used to think you had some potential when you first showed up. But, like so many others, you inevitably fell into the habit of posting in any and every thread that comes to pass regardless of its actual worth. Weather it be from the statwhorish "must have high pots cont" mentality or from too much say and no where to put it (boredom) is you're own business. I simply prescribe to a different ethos where if a topic has less intellectual or humorous value than I care for I refrain from posting in it, especially if it looks like something that will eventually be deleted. Pick-and-choose.

As for the topics I make, Meh. I enjoy them. I'm here to have fun, and they don't break any rules, so why not? It's not like I spam. (Although today, I did reach my quota for the first time.)

A thread about a straw that vaguely resembles a penis that reached 3+ pages of contrived one-liners. I've seen well thought out dissertations on current events in the politics forum not get so high a response. To me, that is a shame. I cannot speak for anyone else, but to me it's a mite distasteful. By no means am I above the level of a good dick joke, though. I prefer comedy to be more subtle and thought out is all. It's not that it was a bad idea, lord knows there are others who have done the same thing (Better) (Best). But it's not the idea I didn't like, it was the execution of it. A good dick joke needs a good setup, even though others will ruin it eventually. It's all about the start rather than the finish.

It's all about never starting at all. Dick jokes are not funny. They have never been funny, and the only people who fund them funny are people who do not meet the minimum age requirement for Newgrounds account ownership. People who are above the age of 13 and find such jokes in any way humorous belong in segregated community for people who need the stupid beat out of them with billy clubs.

I'd be all for imposing draconian regulations on those people who would seek to proliferate these jokes in the public forums. They serve as nothing but a waste of bandwidth.

Why are some threads deleted while others are simply locked?

Yeah, I'm with you on this. You should at least get it recorded in your comment section.

No, because you only get that message when you try to access that page. I don't make a topic and then just sit there and refresh that same page... I go elsewhere for a while and check back in later, after it's had some time to rack up replies.

It's when I try to go back, and I can't find it, that I get confused. Especially if it's deleted just a few minutes after being made. I often wonder if it was ever saved to the database... sometimes, you try again, which then results in a ban.

An automated PM would solve the issue.

Also, a reason as to why it was deleted would be nice... we're not mind readers, often times we don't know what we did wrong unless someone tells us.

Wasn't it pretty obvious in the first place it had been deleted? Why would you remake a topic if the first one was no longer there? You don't need a notification, you need common sense.

I agree. I loathe going through pages of threads and finally realizing that my topic just disappeared. It should be like a ban page, except it'll say "Your topic _____ has been locked, due to ______" when you try to use the forums on your login or something.

Unsatisfactory. Unless we save a link to the thread there is trace of it's existence. So if we're looking for a thread we posted in or made, we cannot find it.

I had the same problem the topic stater is making however it was regarding a post, not an entire thread, I even asked a mod about it, he said it might have been deleted, or it was an error. Assuming the latter I re-posted and got banned for 2 days.

Getting notifications on deletions is helpful and it's even being used on very simplistic forums.
