Disapearing topics?

For any questions, comments, problems or suggestions about anything on this website.
Postby CoasterDemon on May 17th, 2012, 10:11 pm
Just wondering (as I am new here) why topics sometimes disappear in the forum?

The was a topic something like "Superman evac..." a while ago, now it's gone. The topic did morph into different things off topic --- but I (and I'm sure a few others) were following it.

^It's probably because it got way off topic. It went from evacuation for like 2-3 posts, and the rest had nothing to do with it the evacuation. I think he also said that it's nothing special for it to be evacuated.
Imagine going to a movie theater, and they start allowing people in at 12pm to a movie that started at 12pm with maybe a 100 people in line. So many FURIOUS people! Now, imagine going to an amusement park (Great America) where there are 600 people in line for that 12pm movie. I'm NOT saying to ride anything BEFORE 12pm though.

^I can understand that, but my thing was that there were several people following it. Basically, people were *using this site* and getting something out of it. Why completely delete it? I mean, close it - perhaps, but leave the discussion up. What is the point?

I have no idea why the topic was deleted instead of locked, I didn't see the topic. We delete very few posts, and actually let most conversations go. If you have a question about a topic that was closed or deleted. Email or PM a moderator instead of making a topic like this one.

Thanks Dave :) In the 6 weeks or so I have been on the board, I have PM'd a 'moderator' with questions (on 2 occasions) and got NO response. Just letting you know.
