Re: Who is this person?

Your thread isn't closed. Only mods can close threads. Were they suggesting it should be closed because they want to buy the car for instance?

Re: Who is this person?

My thread was closed and it has been re-open without a comment.

Who is this person? Is he messing with the forum software?

I can vouch for that. When I followed Nil's link the first time, I saw that the thread had been closed. It has since been re-opened.

Was it the standard 'thread closed' PM, Nil?

Did you look in the sale/wanted section? Most of the threads have been closed

She's asleep, and I really don't want to wake her as she has a big day tomorrow.

My advice: ban him now and ask questions later.

There are several there that are closed but there is no indication that the items have been sold. That is not to say that the members haven't contacted mods. separately. I am sure that they will get to the bottom of this. Definitely a bit weird though.

DBs suggestion sounds best for now. They can always be reinstated if there is a genuine reason.

With the pm I sended to you, it gives you all the details of what the guy wrote. So it is him who closed them. How can he close them without being a mod?

Hacking?

That seems to be the case, but I am not an IT expert. I am sure the mods will resolve it. Not much more we can do at present.

Re: Who is this person?

Can someone also reopen my for sale's thread here

This thing is descending into a farce!

How can someone gain the right to close threads? If this guy didn't have the rights I think he's found some sort of loophole in vBulletin where he's able to close threads without having the privilege...
