Making this because my last two threads both got moved lol.

Do you have a tendency to make threads which end up moved, closed, or deleted? Can you see any connection between these threads? Does it annoy if one of your threads is moved, closed or deleted when you only had good intentions in the first place, or do you think that it wasn't your fault and try again next time?

BRB, moving your thread to OC now~

To be honest, having a thread moved/closed/deleted is a GIANT FEAR of mine, because I feel it'd be a huge embarrassment when it isn't. So I usually search the forums two to three times before making a thread, and if I think it might break rules, I re-read them several times too. Thus, nothing ever breaks rules. Only threads of mine that get locked are the ones that are bumped and I can't think of a thread that was ever moved due to a fault of mine.

I wish I wasn't so worried about embarrassing myself! Been on this forum for years, I should know what's currently active and is within the rules without searching a billion times. D:

If a thread were moved I'd probably not log in for the rest of the day. ;____;

The only locked threads I have were locked by me or were revived. Moved ummm idk. lol I mean, if I'm in the wrong, I'm in the wrong...and should look around more and not get my threads locked. lol But it hardly happens.

I haven't had that happen to me much on forums, but it doesn't really affect me that much. I made a mistake, and one of the jobs of a staff member is to correct mistake threads. The only reaction I usually have is "whoooops", and then I just move on lol.

I haven't had any of my threads locked in while. Except for my trade thread; but that was requested. I don't think any of my threads have ever been moved; from what I can remember lol.

No, usually because I have the common sense on forums to look at the forum I'm posting in, the content I'm posting, and whether it is something that would be closed or locked before posting it. I rarely get any locked/deleted/moved threads unless I request them.

As far as I can recall, I've only had one thread moved from OC to OVP back when I was really new. I don't think I've ever had one locked, because ever since then I freak the hell out making sure that there is no reason for my thread to be locked or moved or deleted before I post it lol. I hate looking like a noob and you feel embarrassed when a mod has to touch your thread, even though in reality I'm sure nobody else really notices or cares.

Not usually. It's only happened to me once.

The last thread that I have made got locked or the last couple of threads one did get locked. At first I thought it would be embarassing but after looking at the 100's of threads being locked on this Forum, it can happen to anyone; even the best of us.

Like Sammi, I'm fully paranoid of this happening, except in B/W where I know what's made automatically and I pretty much never have to search when I have a thread idea. :)

In OVP though, I remember there was times where I just had to ask Sammi if something was made or not because 4 searches wasn't good enough for me lool. Aaand I generally don't make threads anywhere else, so. :x

I'm also fearful of threads I post in, but not necessarily make being locked since I like to avoid them if I know that'll happen eventually...

Oh but uh, yeah I've had threads locked in the past, mostly for them all being stupid, really. I can't really remember a time where somebody locked my threads for being duplicates.

I did have a thread of mine locked, but it was because it was revived after like...2 years or something like that lmao. Not quite my fault :) However, I don't worry about it getting locked or moved, I worry more about it getting no responses because my topic wasn't interesting enough or something. Which is why I hardly ever actually post a thread.

edit: jk I did have a thread closed that wasn't just revived :'D but usually I don't haha.

I tried to make a point of never having a thread moved, locked or closed. So far, so good. (rules threads don't count, etc)

If someone revives one of my old good ones they will be shanked.

2 of my threads were locked and I think 2 got moved lol. The first thread I ever made on PC was a duplicate so it got locked. xD; My second locked thread got locked because it was too old and someone revived it. XDD;;

I make a little note below the OP to the mods to move/close/delete the thread when I start a new thread because I'm a bit paranoid about the above actions. So no, I don't really have that tendency.

That's why I barely make threads. Most of the time I'm uncertain if I'm posting in the right section, and afraid that I'd irritate/annoy the moderators if I did post something in the wrong section. Not that that has even happened to me before, though.

I have only had a couple locked/deleted and I really don't care if all my threads get locked.

I don't think I've ever had a thread moved or locked unless it was revived a month later. The reason for this being is because I rarely make threads, and when I do I check the forum several times before officially making it. The reason for THAT being because I suck at coming up with new topics to talk about. If one of my threads ever got locked or moved though I would probably freak and never make a thread again. Yeah.

I don't make many threads and I don't worry much about having them moved or locked because if they do then, well, it's not the end of the world. I do slightly worry about accidentally posting in a thread that's over a month old or that will get locked because of it being a duplicate or whatever reason since I've done that a couple of times before and it's a little embarrassing when all you have to do it look at the date to see that it's been revived.

...this is essentially my answer, except it sounds a lot worse coming from an admin. XD; I'm so paranoid about it and it's part of the reason I rarely make threads, haha.

Exactly why I hardly ever make threads ;______; I have only had one moved thread iirc and, yes I didn't sign on for the rest of the day XD I search like a million times before I make a thread.

I had a thread locked and a few moved, I don't really mind if they're moved or merged but I'm scared of that Herdier with the lock. That moment of panic when you see that a mod has posted on your thread.

I occasionally make threads, and usually there's no problem with them getting closed or moved except when someone decides to post in them three or four months later.

I really try to avoid having them locked if at all possible.

It happens to me, once in a rather long while. Sometimes whenever I just post a thread and logout, I always get nervous and jittery because I don't know whether I might have done something wrong. Especially if its nighttime, I get a serious dose of insomnia, like real serious (normal insomnia+added stress insomnia=bad bad bad :x) I don't post threads often, so I don't have such issues. I don't really care if its merged or moved. Usually I'll be like "Oh why didn't I think of that place to put it?" or "Dang, I didn't see that thread." It's embarrassing of course, cos I don't wanna look like a newbie and all. x3

3 You are right. Always make the PERFECT hack thread and nothing happens. EXTREMELY PISSED. As well, 2 of mine got moved. :(:(:(:(:(((((

Here: No, considering that the only thread that I've made here was my welcome thread O.o
Other forums: In the past, I've had a few locked threads (around 7 across several other forums), but none of them were moved nor deleted.

Either way, I don't really mind what happens to my threads.

I don't believe I've ever had any threads of mine locked (Threads being closed due to sheer size doesn't count, as was the case with a couple of DCC threads). Maybe one or two moved way back in my n00b days perhaps, but to be honest it's not a big deal really.

Generally I am careful about things. I don't start threads very often, and when I do I make damn sure I'm not starting a duplicate of anything still alive.

In all my time here I think that I can recall a single thread that I created that was locked. It was actually a birthday thread, but the how and why of its locking is ancient history not worth dredging up. Other than that, I've always been very rule-oriented, thoughtful in thread creation, and even now it's my hope never to create unnecessary work for the staff. I moved and locked enough threads in my day to know that it can be a pain, heh.

If it gets locked or something I might get mad at first until I realize that the mod was completely right and it should have been locked.

Moved doesn't make me feel anything. But to prevent it I will post in the "where do I post this" thread if it's something that could go in two places.

I rarely get my threads locked nowadays and same with moved. But I'd say out of the two, my threads get moved more :<

It dosent happen to me much because I dont make alot of threads, thats one of the reasons why I suppose. Sometimes, I have an idea for a good thread but am afraid the mods wont like it so I end up not making the thread at all. Its kinda sad.

September 3rd, 2011, 11:03 PM
I can't even remember having a thread locked / moved unless I asked the moderator. In graphics and photography, I asked for old galleries or shops to be closed, but that doesn't really count.

But yeah, I wouldn't really want it to happen, bit paranoid like others have said, but if it happened, I'd probably just shrug it off, especially moving them. But yeah.
