I've been a long time Lurker here, this is my first post and I've been curious to a few things. I created this account today to ask a few things and would be grateful for your help.

 

Lurking around here enjoying posts etc. I've come to notice locked threads, and that some threads get deleted. I'm am just curious as to why they are deleted or locked, and what causes this? Some of the posts I've seen this happen to are on topic, and aren't offensive by the OP at least. If posts are deleted because someone posts something offensive in it then why is the entire post deleted and not the offensive comment? 

 

In closing I'm not looking to tick anyone off or anything like that and please if you comment on this don't be offensive, it's really something I've been wanting to know.

 

Thanks you in advance mods,

Harry

usually because the comments and replies turn into a clusterf*ck of arguements and trolling and rather than always going one by one to delete, they just lock it

They either have nothing to do with GTAO, are troll threads, threqds talking about stuff that's already flooding the forums or just plain and simple the thread went to sh*t.

This has nothing to do with GTAO. :^:

Should I have posted this in the General or off topic discussion?

Nah, I'm just saying.

This is likely to get moved or locked, tho. :)

I hope not I would really like to hear from a Mod about this, I think it would help everyone here and tone down some of the sarcastic and trolling posts hating on them i've seen

I've been curious as well, I guess it's just personal discretion between locking/deleting/moving to appropriate location.  You'd have to ask the mod in charge of a specific move why they chose that course of action, I think.

Or just rubbish posts that do have something to do with GTAO but will be better off being deleted anyway.

Like I said, personal discretion.  Possibly it was a repeat topic.  I've had all three options happen on topics I've made, and needed to speak with the individual Mod responsible.


With mixed results...

No one but the mods themselves can answer your question. :)

 

It's best to agree since, well, they're mod for a reason. 

 

 

Edit

 

Your topic got moved, instead of locked/removed.  :panic:

It's a good question... not really worthy of such a rude answer.

 

Additionally, did you notice this thread has been moved?  Option 3.

You've been a lurker long enough to see a bunch of jerks here.  Just ignore them.

Welcome to the forums.

Topics do not get locked for no reason. There is an explanation by a member of staff at the end of the thread most of the time, unless another member provided clarification already. Sometimes there are so many off-topic posts, spam, trolling, etc. that there is no point in getting the topic back on its tracks. Another possibility is that the subject has been recently covered.
