Well I'm glad I'm not the only one who is confused by the premise of this board.


I need some clarification on this--


The part I don't get--aside from the "google list"--is why a thread is here and collects a lot of posts--and then gets moved to another board--but many of the posts are first removed. 



You mean the threads aren't simply moved? They're edited?

Sounds to me like b'net wants us to have open, spirited, free-wheeling debate.


As long as we don't have open, spirited, free-wheeling debate.

Democrats think the glass is half full.
Republicans think the glass is theirs.
Libertarians want to break the glass, because they think a conspiracy created it.

Any one can start a topic in the HTZ.  What staff is wanting is current affairs (no, not about your love life).  When talking about Google it means news (links) that are on Google News.  Other news sources can also have  many topics IMO.  Remember I am an Indian, not a chief (that is a joke I grew up with).  Yahoo has news.  TV sites have news.  Newspaper sites have news.  There are many news sites on the world wide web. 


When the current news topics dies down they are moved to the forum where they most likely will fit.  In a way one could call this seeding the forums.  Everything begins with a thought.  This board was a thought and now it is a place where the rules are not as tight as the other forums.  So enjoy HTZ while the topics are here.  Follow them if you wish or not that is up to you.

Star--hi. With the understanding that you're not "the chief"--I'm wondering if there's any reason that the threads that are moved are vacuumed out first so that much of the original content is removed and the thread is--well--threadbare when put in its new location?


 


It's kind of disheartening to see one's posts over which one worked so hard to make apropos and intelligible and cogent just "disappeared" in order--I guess--to fit better into its new home.


 


Any info would be appreciated.


Again--I ask for info with the understanding that you are the follower not the leader. Wink


We're all just trying to figure out the parameters of the new board.


 


Oh--and thanks so much for the info you provided above.

I believe what is happening is some of the moved topics posts are being cleaned up somewhat.  Since not all the ROCs are enforced in the HTZ when the topic is moved some clean up is done.


I've been out of town for the last week and was not online as much as when I'm home, so I haven't checked on any of the moved topics.  Maybe another host will add comments here.

You're saying that a post written in full compliance with the rules of this forum can be deleted for noncompliance with the rules of a different forum even though the poster had no intention of posting in that forum?
