Rules on a forum are important, they can distinguish a good forum from a bad one. Reason for posting is not because of the fact my thread on a certain young man back in custody was deleted, but of the lack of communication of the dons and their actions. Specifically the rules upon how they act to manage banned topics or touchy topics such as mine. Rules they follow are not what I'm questioning, it's how they approach them. Do you not think it proper for dons to reasonably explain a) why they have closed a thread b) email user why they have deleted a thread? Would this not allow the users to understand what they have done wrong and thus improve their understanding of the rules/forum etiquette? Rules apply to all, not some. Allowing users to understand better what is right/wrong for this forum would benefit all would it not? To simply close/delete an already active thread without reasoning will not explain to users properly the reason/problem for closing/deleting. A simple line of explanation in a closed thread, or email to user(s) to inform them of a delation could only help? We as users are instructed to contact dons with questions, yet this isn't returned with similar kind? I'm only asking out of interest, what do people think?
