We've now appointed three new moderators for the forum: Draconis, DavidG (aka frotz), and cvaneseltine. Please make them feel welcome in their new roles!

Hi.

Will the moderators keep deleting posts that they personally don't like, so the readers of the forum can't see them and think they never happened?

Is yes, please say so upfront, so that we can leave.

I'm surprised to see that coming from you. The moderators have never done that. We don't even delete the posts of our most recurrent trolls.

Of course I don't have a way to know who actually deletes posts (moderators or Merk). At least one post was deleted (most probably because of the #GamerGate thing.)

I hope that no more posts will be deleted (spam bots excluded, obviously.) Even locking threads is pushing it, imo.

I think that recently a post was deleted that basically tried to reopen a thread that had been locked; is that what you're referring to, RealNC?

No, I think he's alluding to a post in the "Places Where You Can Find Comp Reviews" thread: the post stated that a user would be posting reviews on Twitter on a particular hash tag. As far as I can make out, it did not of itself contain anything offensive. The post seemed to appear and disappear, and the claim on Twitter is that it was deleted. Whether that's true or not I couldn't say.

You can probably find the relevant bit on Twitter with a bit of Google-fu. Posting the link here would, I presume, get this post deleted.

I will add another vote: posts that are not egregious violations of the CoC should not be deleted. I have confidence the mods will resolve this issue appropriately.

Also, congrats to the new mods and welcome!
