I create a thread
Diana random pics,
I go to the trouble to sort pics, upload them,
other people reply

then some jobsworth comes along and zaps it

How petty can you get ?

why cant you moderate this forum with a deft touch ........ instead of a hobnail boot ?

Hmm, Alan has a point though, there already was a photo post - several of them, in fact.

I have a plan, hold on a moment...

We do not moderate with a hobnail boot. I think people here will agree that the moderation is very light indeed.

We also go out of our way to explain our moderation decisions, as I did, politely.

I think you're overreacting massively. I did not "zap" your pictures thread, I moved it (and left a shadow topic so people could find it). I closed the thread, but explained why.

Well said, Alan. Our moderation is minimal but order must be maintained.

I hope you appreciate the new Photo Booth section I've created for threads of this nature.

If locking the thread is nt zapping it ,
then what is ?

I often come across pics of Diana on the,
that random thread was a way of bringing them
and sharing them with other members of the forum

wot is the problem ? but no, 24 hours later
the thread is zapped.

But some mods get precious like this.

But its ok , Ill find another Di Rigg forum that
gives people the freedom to create threads
( kindof what these forums are all about ! )

You really need to sit back and consider just how you're coming across.

You seem deliberately confrontational over something that was a standard moderation procedure which was framed with a polite request.

If you can't cope with being politely asked to post to an existing thread without kicking up a stink, then perhaps you ought to do what you say, and find somewhere less totalitarian...

what exactly is totalitarian about this forum ? I don't see it as such. every forum, room, site, etc...has some sort of guideline for visiting, posting, etc..this forum as such, is the least totalitarian...what's the beef ?

That was my point, mousemeat. It's not totalitarian in the slightest. If emmaslave thinks it is, then obviously he/she's not been on some of the forums that I've visited!

I would concur....perhaps some people want 'unlimited' freedom...? or just like to have an axe to grind...anyhow, this tooo, shall pass....
