I'll get this one for y'all

So if someone is going to close a thread, fine close it.

But as this is a Forum, please do all a favor and say WHO closed it at the end of the thread.

We all put our usernames on our virtual actions here. Please Mods, do so too.

Dude, didn't you get the memo? This is the North Korea of internet forums. Plus some funny cat pics.

I bet my lucky 20 centavo piece your request will be recognized and filled.

Re: I'll get this one for y'all

A mod who closes a thread is acting in the name of the moderation team, not in his own name.

Anyway, what you doing asking questions? Just keep clicking on the pages and everybody will be happy!

Click, click, click, click, click, click...

Lob would have banned you for that .

And I grew up literally behind a Walmart, I could hit it with a stone from my bedroom window- evil as they may be I have a soft spot for them due to years of my youth spent in the tools and fishing tackle sections.

Re: I'll get this one for y'all

I am with you, Ouchboy, on this. It is somewhat shocking to find a lively thread closed for no apparent reason and without explanation. I really feel that we deserve better.

Agree. A reason would also be helpful.

In a word: yes.

Fortunately, there are still some forums in Switzerland owned by members of our own community, which are run by the community for the benefit of the community.

Unfortunately, I'm not allowed to name them here.

But I'm assured that nobody can read our PMs.

Re: I'll get this one for y'all

Well I was slightly annoyed about it as I'd just spent ages writing a reply supporting Mud's remark about 'older' members with low post numbers being intimidated at times by the reaction they got from some people, tried to post it and couldn't.
I'd also discovered from the thread before that how to find out my membership number..... ye gods but I'm ancient!

I don't mind that fix at all: that's exactly what we're hoping for.

If people want pages and pages of Lolcats, they know exactly where they can find them.

while yet others seemingly live forever but serve no other purpose but to feed some troll's flame war.
