View Full Version : Did a thread about transliteration get deleted?
12-12-2004, 12:38 PM
Am I hallucinating, or has a thread about transliterating Greek and Cyrillic writing in GQ that was still active as of last night disappeared off the face of the board? I can't seem to find it anywheres.

I didn't notice that thread, but one on bending metal with sound (GQ) seems to have suffered the same fate this morning.

If I had to guess, I'd say the OP of those threads is either a returning bannee or a repeat guest trying to skip out on the membership fee. I hate it when a thread I've put some effort into is deleted. But, what can you do? *shrug*

If it's a non-disruptive thread that some people have put some effort into, I personally would remove the offending poster's name from the OP, and any reference to their name in the thread (possibly replacing it with "Mud" or somesuch), but leave the rest of the thread as is.

I banned the retuning poster who opened about six threads, and "deleted" all of his threads. Sorry that this has to be done, but it's for the greater good. I'll see what I can do about pruning the "guest" but leaving all of your hard work. Most times, it just isn't possible.
