Which post? Someone else might've posted the same topic before you, though we already have a superthread guide for them anyway, which is moot. 4 of your posts do not seem to have been moved though.

Guessing your talking about the daily quest topic? one of two things happened.

 

1.Mod removed it: There's an old rule about posting more then 2 daily quest topics in a weeks time.

That rules isn't actively being enforced like it use to be but if someone regularly dominates the daily quest topics (like 15 topics in a month) and those post are low quality we will enforce said rule and remove topics in the hopes the next person well put some effort into it.


2.Your topic was down-voted triggering the hide and review system: an admin/mod saw a low quality post ("click" "url" "do X action") on the review list and deemed it unworthy of reinstatement.

 

Ether way it's a result of mass low quality post please put some effort into them or give others a chance.

Perhaps it would be worth reposting that thread. It's certainly less frustrating to operate under rules when those rules are explicit and available. And nothing I do is low quality, but I'm willing to forgive your presumption.

It was the post immediately preceding the ... I don't wanna say duplicate cuz it weren't, but yeah, mine preceded the less good duplicate.

Mod dithered but did answer, and Shadow TOS's are practically SOP these days. I'll suffer a slight such as this happily to know unequivocally that the proverbial DM is fudging not just the rolls but the rules as well.

 

In the OP I didn't say it shouldn't have been deleted. I said I shoulda gotta letta  bout it. Communication is anathema to secret proceedings and I can think of no two words so ugly together as those

KIWC, I guess that you are a Alienware newbie, kinda just like me, and you want to get some free cosmetics for your avatar, or maybe you are on a badge hunt, or maybe just looking for some ARP. That is ok, and all good. (Yes, my avatar is naked too!) I am happy that you are taking the time to post threads on this website.

 

Complaining or pointing out issues with the system/site is ok too. I respect that.

 

But... The huge caveat is how to go about the ARP generating activities or complaining, and realize the etiquette of electronic dialogue, and be sure that what is being posted falls within the forum rules of what is a legitmate post, and what constitues spam or a non-regulatory post.

 

In the online world USING CAP LOCK IS SCREAMING AND THROWING A FIT, and is seen as very rude. When composing a post, use a combo of upper and lower case letters (or just lower case if there is no patience - also, most keyboards have auto capitalization so that the first letter of each word after a period is a capital letter. With all the stuff built into virtual keyboards and spellcheckers, it makes writing almost a no brainer.). If the whole post in all caps, it may have receive many down votes from offended forum readers, or may even get nuked.

 

Take the time to think about what you want to say and compose your threads and responses. Communication is all about expressing yourself so your audience (the other entities on this forum) can understand you. Many members of this site do not have English as their primary language, and they rely on web page translation sites to read what is being posted.  Using abbreviations, or not manually checking the post for spelling issues (due to whatever dictionary the spellchecker uses or tablet/phone fat finger errors) will lead to the post not being readable to non-English speakers.

 

Hopefully this helps you keep your posts from disappearing into some electronic black hole. Hope to see more posts from you. That part on your response about the habits of DMs was spot on!

Oooooooh, my first down vote. I just hit a milestone! I wonder if I got ARP for that, or maybe a thumbs down badge... Or maybe, I just got my first anti-fan. Bwaaaa-haaaaaa-haaaaaaaaaaa-haaaaaaaaa!

 

Thank you for the down vote mystery alien. At least somebody is reading (and not liking) what I am droning on, and on, and on, and on, etc.

OP should abstain from using big words when s/he doesn't know how or when to use them especially combined with 2nd grade spelling and sentence structure. (Sorry if I offended any 2nd graders)

In a way that's not low quality, explain what  where the AF  is supposed to mean.
