When your thread is deleted you get an error message saying the thread was deleted or never existed. Isn't that enough notification? Do you need a calculator to add 2 + 2?
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.
