Not to slag vox, but doing these things is OK. Really.

I don't think Vox was saying those combinations shouldn't be done, just that they were higher-risk approaches which beginners might want to save for later.

Well of course I guess more advanced dressers can try such things, but my point is that I am a beginner, as many others are, and that thread was of great help.

Something is a little off about this guy: http://www.styleforum.net/u/169689/afreegreek

I don't think he is a sock or a full on troll. However, he has some really odd posts and moves to mild hostility quickly. Probably just worth keeping an eye on him.

agreed, this post seems rather trollish for MC.

Hmmm. That's about in line with some of the bombs thrown by some SW&D denizens in the past. I'd be more inclined to slap the wrists of anyone who responded to that nonsense.

I found an example of the thumbs down button and collapsing posts by the community here: http://www.militaryhistoryonline.com/forums/ViewPost.aspx?ForumID=7&ID=22632

That's interesting. I honestly doubt that Huddler will be able to accommodate that though.

Excerpt:

We've had problems in the past where we've needed a mechanism to deal with posts without actually deleting them. So, I've introduced the "Thumbs Down" icon found on some other forums. This allows the community to collapse a post if enough members vote on it. Forums use this as a self-moderating feature. Members with 500 posts or more get 1 vote and Members with 1000 posts or more get 2 votes counted to a post. A post needs 8 votes to get collapsed. It does not go to the Moderators and everything is handled automatically through the database. Users only can vote once per post. Once 8 votes are reached, the post gets automatically collapsed and will have a "This post has been collapsed by the community" message and a "Show" button. If you click the "Show" button it will let you still view the post. It is meant to be used for posts that habitually go off topic, posts that derail threads, etc. It is 100% anonymous.

This gives the Moderators and senior members the ability to deal with posts. We'll see how it works. Everything can be adjusted.


No more need for doobiously honoring anyone.

This looks interesting. I would support something similar to this.

Eeep..we might need to re-christian the board as Butthurt Forum if such a feature is ever introduced.
post #10212 of 14934
My last post was deleted. I saw it appear - then it simply wasn't there. My recent Activity says I posted in a thread today at 12:27pm - but under All Posts, the last post was in WAYWRN, yesterday.

I'm in shock.
post #10213 of 14934
This has happened to me, too. I assume it was just a glitch because there was nothing objectionable in the post.
post #10214 of 14934
There was a little update thing going on earlier today that may have blown up a couple of posts. Mods will generally contact you if your posts were deleted over something objectionable.
post #10215 of 14934
Damn. That post 'deletion' really warranted a conspiracy theory, too.
