Why are mods constantly locking and merging threads pointlessly

Best Answer henriquedematos, 26 August 2014 - 01:02 PM

I can either split your OP or you can repost it yourself. As for the latter one, the premiss is pretty much the exact same as that of the pinned one, I can however add your poll to the pinned thread. Just say the word.


Yeah, fair enough about adding the pool, I think it would be useful IMHO. No need to do anything about the other one, it's just an old thread now.

The OP requested the first thread to be locked.

This is getting way out of hand in GTAO, mods are just looking for excuses to exterminate threads without warning.

Two briefed examples that happened to me recently:
 

Hey guys, check out this aviaton-based update concept I made...
 
"There's another aviation-based update idea"
 
But it's my own idea, it differs a lot from the other thread, I just want to...
 
"lol, thread merged with the other one."

 

Hi, I decided to make a pool to see what's the general consensus on what might be included in the next DLC...

"There's a speculation thread already"

But the other thread doesn't even have the pool, and in the other thread people are mostly just discussing leaked content and complaining about how bad the previous DLC was...

"lol, thread locked"

And it's obviously not just me, I've seen a lot of people also complaining about how "trigger happy" mods in that forum are.


EDIT: By the way, the title of the thread is supposed to be "Why are mods constantly locking and merging threads pointlessly in the GTA Online forum", I guess I accidentally cut it.

I fail to see why the first thread was locked. I can either split your OP or you can repost it yourself. As for the latter one, the premiss is pretty much the exact same as that of the pinned one, I can however add your poll to the pinned thread. Just say the word.

 

E: Cheers, Ciaran.
