Where did my topic go?

Question

Otter

If a topic is deemed unworthy, misplaced, disruptive, against the rules, or otherwise problematic, it will be moved or removed solely at the discretion of the moderation team. If a lock is required, we will try to leave a short explanation, though again this is at our discretion. Very often, these situations can be avoided with a little common sense.

 

Do not take it upon yourself to recreate the thread.

 

 

However, should you take issue with a thread's lock or removal, or wish to request its return, here is the place to do so. If the answer is no, then that will be the final word on the subject. Use the simple form attached:

[b]Thread link:[/b] (link to the original thread if possible)[b]Thread Title:[/b] (in case it was binned)[b]Thread justification:[/b] (why is this thread necessary)

Do not abuse this service, and do not post in this thread unless you are requesting an investigation. In the future all threads regarding "Where did my topic go?" or "Why was my topic locked" will be deleted and the original poster will be publicly flogged.

 

Any further discussion on this matter, whinging or moderator outreach can be done in the Have a Question? thread in Gen Chat.

I binned it, the crews section is for crew and gang topics only, not such questions. Forums were down a lot yesterday with 502/521 errors, so i haven't sent you a message about it yet, sorry.

Now that you're here, i guess i don't need to PM you. Feel free to re-post the question in the GTA O section, but try to be precise about it, what LCS crew are you referring to. From what i recall, the question wasn't so clear.

I'm confused, is the Crews section on this site nothing to do with the Rockstar Crews that you join on the Social Club website?

The crews section is for hosting crew threads, the purpose of threads there is for a central discussion thread for a crew, and nothing else. They'll usually have a social club, but it's not meant as a discussion forum about social club crews.

 

Generally all questions online related should go in GTAO Help & Support :)

So a 'Crew' and a 'Social Club Crew' are different things?

 

Why on earth did you decide to call them crews when R* had already used that name for something similar but different? Why not just call them gangs?

Why not just call them gangs?

 

The section used to be called 'Gang Chat' but it now includes crews as well as the older gangs so it was renamed. 99.9% of members are able to understand this.. If you read the threads in the section you will see the sort of topics that belong there.

 

Instead of arguing about it why not just go ahead and post your question in the Support Forum as you've been asked?

I'm not arguing, I'm just trying to understand.

 

I have looked at the threads in the forum, and it was still not clear to me. To clarify (not trying to be pedantic here) if there is no thread on the LSC Social Club crew (I couldn't find one) then I could actually just start one not only to answer my question, but to unite with other members of the LSC?

 

I'm not trying to be awkward, I will post where you direct me to.

Are you talking about the LCS crew created by Rockstar themselves for Social Club? From looking at your topic, you just asked a random question about them, so that's best fitted to a topic like GTA Online Quick Questions, although it might be that no one but Rockstar can answer such a question.

 

As for our Crews section, it's for any type of crew, gang or group that base themselves here and call GTAForums their home. So yes by all means you can create your own LCS crew in there, but you'd have to set up the topic properly and recruit members from around the forums; just look at any of the active topics in there for an example. If you just wanted to recruit people to LCS to play GTA Online with, then you'd post it in Recruitment instead, or if you want to find other players who are also in LCS to play a quick game you can post an advert in Find Lobbies.

 

I hope that clears things up.

Hello a thread of mine has just been removed. i'd just like to know why

 

Thread link:http://gtaforums.com/topic/890462-12yo-girl-tries-to-talk-about-his-sexual-orientation-at-church/
Thread Title:12yo girl tries to talk about his sexual orientation at church
Thread justification:i really don't see why that thread should be banned (not even locked). there's only a video in it. it's about a 12yo girl that discovers she's homosexual, and she simply decide to tell homosexuality is not a disease. What's wrong with that? i don't know if for people 12yo is too young, but i loose my virginity at 13. just sayin', huh

It looks as though it hasn't been deleted, it's just been merged into the Video Topic http://gtaforums.com/topic/381823-the-video-topic/?p=1069682619

 

Generally videos on their own don't need their own individual topic perhaps unless they were about something specific to discuss or some big news, it's nothing against the content they show, it's just that's what the main Video Topics are there for.

 

In future you can click "My Content" and then "Only Posts" if you can't find something you've posted.

Why should my contributions be deleted too though? The thread starter doesn't own the replies that were added, only his own. It should have been closed if anything.

 

No reply necessary, please just note that I'm unhappy about it.

 

Thanks

Hugh stated in his OP and in his final post that he wanted the thread to be deleted. It is forum policy that if the author of the thread requests it, then the whole thread is binned.

 

If there is some particular important detail that you wish to be recovered, that post could be split from the binned topic into a new topic.

Why are RedDagger and AndyGanteks... other staff and mods killing new Smuggler's Run DLC threads? Why are we not allowed to create appropriate Smuggler's Run forums, sub forums and discussion threads???

 

http://gtaforums.com/topic/895020-smugglers-run-dlc-vehicle-discussion/?p=1069797185

Smuggler's Run DLC Vehicle Discussion

 

http://gtaforums.com/topic/895026-smugglers-run-what-is-in-it-heres-what-i-see/?p=1069797461

Smuggler's Run What is in it? Here's What I See...

 

These are NOT a generic what is the next dlc going to be, speculation threads as it is factual based on the Rockstar name of the new DLC and the Rockstar images that have been released.

 

It contains real world research and NEW information on what the images ARE and if it was left UNLOCKED.... it could be updated as we get the proper GTA names etc as they become available.

 

You are allowing multiple other threads that DO NOT have the proper vehicle names, etc to remain open ... but are closing down my threads and threads of others for no apparent reason when compared to the threads that are left open????

 

Escort looking car Discussion Thread
Tucano/Texan II/ PC-9 lookalike aircraft discussion thread
Grumman G-21C Goose look alike
The Hunter Appreciation Thread!
Rustler: Appreciation and Discussion Thread
Alpha Z-1 Appreciation Thread (mini stunt plane)
NEXT UP IN GTA ONLINE: SMUGGLER’S RUN – WATCH THE TRAILER by RedDagger and GTA Online: Smuggler's Run is Coming August 29 by Spider-Vice are clearly DUPLICATE threads (by RedDagger under GTA Online and Spider-Vice's posted under "News").... why are these DUPLICATE THREADS allowed but my threads with research and new info are LOCKED... NOT allowed???
Almost all of these are created after my threads and left open???? I don't understand what your criteria is... Are these "friends" of the staff/mods or what? It makes no sense!

 

We need a "Smuggler's Run" thread with sub forums for business, vehicles, other knowledge... etc to have a centralized place to look for discussions... just like was done for Gunrunning...

 

But it appears the GTA Forum moderators use subjective and random thoughts to lock or delete threads and do not like anyone posting a topic they want to own??? RedDagger is killing any thread that might compete with his "watch the rockstar trailer" thread....which should be properly under the next DLC thread or possibly should be in a NEW but not yet created "Smuggler's Run" thread...

 

But again it appears the staff/mod's do not seem to want anyone new competing with their threads for views.... even if the gta forums is missing the APPROPRIATE threads for NAMED DLC's??? Really LAME!!!!

 

Please unlock my threads and let those of us who use the forums .... USE THE FORUMS???

 

We need a Smuggler's Run Thread/subforums to make it easier to find and post discussion about Smuggler's Run... please!

I locked your thread because the vehicles section is generally used for specific vehicle threads, as other people have already done - plus people were already using the update threads for speculation.

RedDagger, AndyGanteks and Tiger have closed three of my threads... two which would have pre-dated most of these threads on most of the DLC vehicles??? Why do you close my threads and rename other threads that were started later by other people??? It does not seems fair?


Smuggler's Run DLC Vehicle Discussion

Smuggler's Run What is in it? Here's What I See.


Both of these threads mention the vehicles that are in the following later threads


Tucano/Texan II

Alpha Z-1

Tula

V65 Molotok

Rustler

Me-163


But you locked my threads and don't rename or give me credit for starting the discussions... again NOT fair.... I should be credited with starting the discussions... EXCEPT your mods randomly pick and choose or WORSE are picking their own threads or friends threads instead of the first posts!!! NOT FAIR!!!

I locked your Tula thread because it was a duplicate of a Tula topic that was already active. Hence the link that I quoted in my closing post.

You should know by now that duplicate topics are locked so I don't understand why you have issue with this?

Original Tula topic posted 26th August 11.39am

 

Your Duplicate topic posted 26th August 8.07pm

Thanks. Here it is http://gtaforums.com/topic/885189-why-the-third-waydeathwish-ending-c-was-not-much-satisfying

 

I guess it was just binned to clean up the forum? I've moved it back in case you needed to reference something from it, but don't think it's going to get unlocked with how much cleaning up there might be to do.

Thanks guys! I had good memories in that "completely f*cked-up" topic

Hello, i posted in the US general politics discussion thread the following simple question: 'why the USA invaded Vietnam?'. and i got warned. somebody can tell me why

This isn't the right thread to be asking these questions, but looking at the message from the reminder given it has something to do with the post being hidden due to being off topic.

 

Maybe contact Crokey for a more thorough explanation?

I ain't the one who removed it or warned ya but D&D is generally meant for higher-effort discussion - if you had a simple question like that then it'd be more suited to the have a questions thread in gen chat.
