deleted posts and threads

I guess ive violated some rule because my post got deleted, well im assuming so because i cant find it. I must have offended someone. Its not the deleting i care about so much (i do but not my board, lol) but the not knowing why. If something ive written gets deleted, can someone just tell me the reason?

Re: deleted posts and threads

The sex section is the only one I delete stuff from sometimes without telling why or giving warnings, the reason being, there is so much stuff that doesn't meet the guidelines I just don't have time to PM everyone about it, and it's not a big deal where people need to be banned for it.

If you read the description of the section across the top of your screen when you're in it, it says
Quote:
Sex in Marriage Sexual problems are common in many relationships. This section is for discussions about sexuality. Please limit discussions to those asking for help with a problem and those offering advice. Any other threads may be deleted.
Basically, anything that's not something where the person is asking for help with a problem, I try to delete it. The reason being, it tends to get too racy in there when people start discussing fantasies, etc. We don't want to attract that kind of traffic (people here just to talk about sex), because it ends up spilling over to the rest of the forum.

Not trying to indicate your thread was blatantly inappropriate at all, it probably just wasn't about asking for help with a specific problem you had.

Admittedly, I don't catch it all, and sometimes I leave stuff up when I see a bunch of people replied, and it stayed PG rated.

Hope that explains it.

Re: deleted posts and threads

Actually it's not the only section you delete from. I had a comment deleted with no warning, comment, or anything. Unless someone else took it down, I have no way of knowing.

This is where something really smart, funny, and thought provoking should go. Sorry you got screwed.

Re: deleted posts and threads

Like M22 said, if it's something that was a response to a violation of forum guidelines, sometimes those get deleted as well.

For example, someone calls someone an [insert expletive]. We normally ban that person and delete the post, but if there are 10 replies to the expletive post, it doesn't do much good just deleting the original violation - the whole vile conversation would still be on the site.

We want the content of the site to reflect the values we like to promote in the forum guidelines, so clear violations of those usually get deleted.
