    Why are threads being deleted that are breaking no rules? No one bad mouthed the game or even gave reasons for leaving. Why do we have a general discussion section if people aren't able to have general discussions? All you guys are doing is pissing your subscribers off. You seriously can't make a thread saying goodbye to someone who is leaving game?

    Least you can do is make a post letting people know what they are doing wrong. By doing stuff like deleting threads of people saying goodbye all you are doing is further alienating their buddies and making your company look like the bad guy.

    Dem, no one is saying it's you directly. But the problem is bringing things privately to a GM/Dev/Mod's attention has a worry for everyone of getting blown off just as bad. If Threads will be flat out deleted without any commentary or msg or anything, regularly, without any rules being broken or even "bent", why would we have faith in the mods on these topics?

    Again, no offense to you directly, but SV has a very poor approach on this. Most the people here have stuck with SV through more shit then they should stick through for free much less pay for, getting that kind of treatment regularly is wrong.

    Chaos, I hope you do know that most of those threads that were deleted when kootenay was around would usually be restored by him if you asked, unless they were breaking a rule in the first post. And most of those post were deleted by other mods. As the issue became even worse when he disappeared.

    Anyways as Demtri has said, talk to him, the lead mod if you feel a post or thread was wrongly deleted.

    No, actually. No they were not.

    He was a tyrannical dictator of these forums. Thank god those dark days are over.

    You shouldn't HAVE to talk to a different mod to say things are being done unfairly. An occasional bit yes, but as regularly as SV has it? No way. That's just stupid.

    Some things get wrongly deleted sometimes because there are new mods learning the ropes. Or they believe something was close to breaking the rules but when it actually wasn't.

    No. Simply, and flat out, no.

    "New mods" only applies for short times. SV's obsession with thread deletion is not a "short" burst or is in "short" bursts except when people get used to those egg shells. If they SERIOUSLY, have that many new mods deleting things that often, then their horrible decision making in giving new mods delete powers without double checking them is no better.

    How could goodbye threads or a complaint thread or a "this needs fixed" thread be close to breaking the rules without someone doing something pretty far out of those threads parameters? SV wants to delete anything that makes it look bad. Yes there is still plenty that does, not even they can siphon all of it from the web. Problem is when you delete anything that goes down that path, it creates its own new path of "its so bad they delete everything" aswell as the already complaining threads

    The deletion of threads criticizing the game does so much more harm than good.

    Post that didn't not constructively criticized the game would be deleted, because they were made mostly to troll (which it lead to flaming and later on rule breaking which would be why these threads would be deleted). You can find tons of threads currently still around that criticizes the game, but do so constructively.

    Deleting threads is fucking stupid in my opinion, particularly when there is no reason provided. I hated deleting threads when I was a mod. It just pisses people off. If a mod wants to shut a thread down then simply lock/close it and provide a humorous comment on why said thread has been locked. Alternatively, the offending thread can be moved to an appropriate category.

    As for deleting threads for criticising the game, well, we all know what that results in. It will simply piss people of MORE and result in more venom spewed about MO in other forums on the internet.

    Generally speaking "Goodbye" threads are against the rules on most official game forums. Not sure why anyone expects differently here.
