Where Did My Forum Topic Go?

During busy times like today, we receive emails from members asking where their forum topics went. Why were they deleted?

Moderators will very rarely delete a topic, but only for a handful of reasons:

  • It's a dupe of another recent topic
  • It violates the commenting policy
  • It lacks substance – a link only or a few words

More often than not, topics are removed from voting by other members. You can upvote and downvote forum topics and if a topic falls below -10 in voting, it's automatically deleted from the system.

I hope this helps clear things up a little for some of the newer members on the site. I'm happy to answer any other questions you might have.
