    Yes... I have now read and accepted your reasons for closing my recent thread entitled, "Game Thread: Connect Word". Next time, I'll be sure to read the rules more closely to avoid repeating the same mistake. Therefore, this is a notice of appology. By nature, I take rules very seriously, but I'm also a human being who can forget some of them from time to time.

    You advised me to read your rules about the posting of game threads. However, I did read your rules; therefore the relavent issue here is that I failed to remember them.

    Nevertheless, now that I've accepted the fact that you closed the thread in question, is it really necessary for it to remain exposed on AF? Or do you take pleasure in exposing such members who did not deliberately set out to ruin your site? If you have any regard for the dignity of users on your forum, then perhaps you might consider deleting my closed thread and allow me to continue making a good impression on my friends.

    Just a thought...

    What's so bad about locking threads and not deleteting them? There's a reason why threads can be locked, and it happens too all of us! My threads have been locked before, and I was fine with it o_o..

    I don't think your friends will really care if they are your friends, I mean it happens to pretty much everyone at some point. I don't see how locking threads and keeping it noticable affects dignity at all.

    I take on board your opinion here... but if you had read my complaint carefully, you might have noticed that I didn't in any way disagree with the "locking" of threads. I just don't see why they should remain on a forum after closure, that's all, especially now that they serve no purpose other than to ruin the reputation of members who potentially meant no harm.

    And yes... I understand that true friends wouldn't judge me from such instances. But... to put it another way... just because others may not care about the stain on my tea-shirt, doesn't mean I shouldn't.

    I read your complaint very carefully, and at no time did I ever say you didn't agree or disagree with the decision of your thread being locked. When I said there's a reason why threads are locked, I meant that's why the locking feature has been added, if not there would only be a delete feature, so maybe instead of pointing fingers, you could read my reply a little better. Thanks on that, now to the point. How do locked threads hurt a user's reputation? I don't see how reputation even matters on a forum, and I never looked at locked threads and considered the user any worse or any better, and I doubt anyone here really does anyways.

    That's the problem with forums nowadays, reputation. People care to much about it. No one cares about your thread being locked. Mine have been locked before and no one said nor probably really thought too much about it.

    I've been to probably around twenty - thirty forums? All of them did the same thing. And all of the users that got their thread locked never complained about loss of dignity, well at least from what I have seen in complaint forums.

    I'm not trying to be mean, just don't worry so much about it.

    Okay, I can see where the two of you are coming from.
    Yes, she might be concerned about her reputation, or 'image' on a forum.
    Yes, I dont doubt the fact that you can make friends online, and close ones aswell.

    But, look at it this way; I don`t know who you are. Yet just because a thread was closed due to a small human error or failure of memory doesn`t give me any right to slap a label on you.

    Your friends will understand, otherwise don`t sweat over spilled milk hun. =]

    A locked thread can contain moderator or administrator comments, which are also visible to other members; therefore, they have the potential to mislead other members into thinking wrongfully about the person who created that locked thread. In my opinion this puts the thread starter's reputation at risk... I don't mean the kind that scores you points, but rather, the more literal kind from the collective judgement.

    On a more positive note though, I've taken on board your comment about the fact that true friends would not judge me on the basis of a locked thread - so in that sense, I can see that the visibilty of the thread in question is irrelavent. Therefore, I will try not to worry about this instance as you advised.

    Overall, I thank you for your comments; I feel that I've learn't much from them.

    Threads that get locked contain moderators comments to show the person(s) what went wrong or otherwise to make the thread get locked. That way such things can best be avoided in the future.

    Usually, threads only get deleted if they're causing serious problems.. in which case, it should come as being obvious to the user why it was deleted without an explanation needed.

    Reputation? I've had my threads locked before, it's not a big deal.

    Well, now that a moderator (such as yourself), has given me a technically clear explanation for the locking of threads, it's a lot easier for me to erm... live with. Therefore, thanks

    I think it's more so that others will learn from it and not make the same mistake. Any post game suggestions can go here and may be selected by mods later.
    After more research it was determined that 2012 was the end of twinkies.

    Yeah, mostly this. If threads that broke the rules just silently vanished, nobody would be the wiser, and rules would be broken much more often, so moderation is done in the open as much as possible, so that people are reminded of the rules.

    And everyone gets a thread closed every once in a while, especially so new members such as yourself, so your reputation remains untarnished. Furthermore, they fall of the main page pretty quickly, so in a matter of weeks, it's pretty much vanished into the mists of time.

    Well, thanks for giving me the details on that. I'm over it now, so erm... all is cool. I don't believe in holding grudges so... no hard feelings, right? Also, thank you Maverickgirl for your advice.
