If the answer is no, then that will be the final word on the subject.

What happened to the leaked heists info thread from this morning? I tried to search my "woohoo" post but even that got deleted, I think.

i'm wondering why my thread in the gaming section was locked?

 

What's wrong with it? I was just asking what games people are wanting for Christmas but it was locked without a reason displayed

There is a thread for Christmas wishlists already in the Gen Chat, not dedicated to gaming but that's probably why http://gtaforums.com...stmas-wishlist/

Yeah but two completely difference subjects but there was no reason given why so if that is why it was locked it would've been nice to be told that's why but even then it's still two completely difference topics in two completely difference sections

I can't see why it was locked or who locked it. I've renamed and unlocked it for now unless another staff member comes forward with a reason why.

The thread was locked again with the following message "Don't see the need in Xmas lists. Post it to Santa."

 

What is the harm in this topic?

There's no set rules for this section as far as I'm aware there wasn't a thread for this already; and if there was i could have been pointed in that direction, but no, instead a lock with no explanation or redirection. Good work to that particular mod.  trying to meet your quota, are you?

Did you even try searching the forum? I did, and found a 16 page topic for the game already. Link.

 

While I agree that the moderator should have probably pointed you to the topic, it doesn't help your case if you don't even try the search function.

No, i didnt - I stopped using the search feature a long time ago.  I dont think i've ever searched and actually found a topic i was looking for, even when using the same exact title and all the correct filters.  

 

thnx.

Why was my greezler thread deleted? Why not locked, wrong section? It was written by a fellow gtaf member and I contributed some parts to it.

Looks like it was pretty shameless advertising for an outside website with absolutely zero effort given to the forum post.

yea I guess you're right, I didn't say much about it. Basically the story was scattered in different posts from another forum and some gtalk convos from a few years ago. The guy who made the website decided to put all those parts together so the full story could be in one place. I don't believe he gets any money as there's no ads on the site.

 

 

 

oww, the posts below got deleted v_v

weasel, otter...

 

can I talk to your leader?  the chipmunk?  where's he at?

 

yeah, somone with some nuts.  lol

 

hey, just kidding.  lighten up already!

 

lil weasel said...

 

There is a reason,
1. There is no "Clown" in the unmodded game.
2. There are no "Zombies" in the unmodded game.
3. Mods are not a subject for this part of the forum.
4. We do not need another series of (non)-Myth topics.
5. Use SEARCH before creating a "new' topic.

 

1.  there is indeed a clown driving every mr. whoopee van.  are you new?

2.  I don't use any mods or cheats or whatever.

3.  fact is, I came upon a mr. whoopee clown i couldn't kill that was quite intent on killing me after I tried to jack his pecker-appointed popsicle truck.

4.  why would I make this sh!t up?

5.  only happened once.

6.  which is why I wanted to know if anyone in this gaming community knew anything about it.

7.  apparently not.

8.  y'all need ta play it a little more!

9.  lol

Looking for quick help from an admin. My crews recruitment thread was removed due to an issue regarding a copywritten image being included in it.

If an admin could be so kind as to remove the image & restore the thread it would be greatly appreciated.

http://gtaforums.com...entry1066967293

If this can be done, can said admin please PM me after it has been restored so necessary changes can be made to the thread. Thanks!!

Unfortunately it was created by a member named Knucclehead60 - feel free to recreate it without the copyrighted imagery (We don't want a motorcycle club coming after you. Or us. ;) )

Thread link: http://gtaforums.com/topic/780092-video-game-name-generator/ 
Thread Title  Video Game Name Generator

 

Thread justification: The thread is just as necessary as other contributory thread like "share your seflies"  "post funny pics" or any other thread which facilitates dynamic content and amusement. It is a fresh gaming thread in the gaming forum, and it looks to be breaking no rules. I linked to an external website which isn't mine, nor am I profiting off of it, so why was my thread locked?

'Game' threads tend to get locked. Normally, the moderator would leave a note explaining this. This one won't be overturned, sorry.

Don't know why it was binned. Looks perfectly fine to me, so I'm going to assume it was binned on accident. I have moved it back for you.

Talking about the thread - "One thing that V improved of IV" in the GTA V section.
I am curious to know why was the thread completely removed ( or hidden ) when usually threads get locked out with a reason, and gets removed only in rare cases. I was the last one who replied in that thread pointing out how a moderator was trying to let the thread becoming derailed by off-topic post which was just a meme, and not even a post.
So, is that the reason that would explain threads removal to hide the moderators fault, or something else?
You can find the link to actual thread on google HERE.
The very first result

[edit].
To clarify: I am talking about the moderator himself making an offtopic post by quoting another reply with simply a meme, which was completely off-topic itself, thus I only tried to point him that according to the rules, his action ( via post ) is actually leading to continue this derailment.

I can understand if the thread was going out of hand with insults and no one seems to take the the thread seriously.
In case of the thread to the topic, it was going smooth with some off topic posts in the last page or so, and began as every normal topic open for discussion.
Locking the thread makes sense but doing totally opposite, and that too, because I simply pointed out the moderator should not let the thread derail further by quoting the post further for posting only an off topic post with a meme???
The timing is what makes me think that an inappropriate action was taken by removing the thread.
