  • A moderator looks like they deleted your post because of the big huge waving flag in your signature. I wouldn't have deleted the post but since we have no way of enabling users to message each other, maybe the moderator felt they didn't have many options.

    I would suggest keeping signatures professional and without huge visual distractions to avoid moderators doing this to your posts in the future.

  • Brent,

    I think the better job of the moderator could have been to inform the user about that problem instead of deleting all his replies. IMHO, if the moderator didn't ask the user, he didn't have a right to go ahead and delete the responses right away.

  • Thank you for your reply.

    I had never thought that adding flags was forbidden because I saw some moderators who put flags of their country, communism... as picture of their profiles.

    It is because of that I was thinking that it was not forbidden.

    Remark: It will be better that moderators inform us if something is wrong. It will be better than deleting replies. Like that all should be okay :)

  • BTW, I've seen some really distracting signatures and I think they should be forbidden. The signature should not include any flash or non-technical links or flags. I think it should be made absolutely clear in the forum rules.

  • I think signatures should probably just go away as the purpose they serve is minimal compared to the potential abuses. In the next couple of months we will be deploying a more rich user card, so over time, I'd like to decommission signatures, people typically just use them to promote ads or show big distracting things that aren't really useful or relevant.

    As for having the moderators inform users, I agree, but again we have no way for them to do it in the system so it's hard to ask them to do that today.

  • Just try to inform them at least.

    It will not be an obligation but at least inform them. That is all :)

    Contributors have the right to know what is wrong.

    For me it was really annoying to find which replies has been deleted and re-write them.

  • Brent,

    I would not be so harsh on signatures, say, I have a link to my blog in it and I'd like to keep it (not many people will click it, of course).

    As for the moderator, if you know who he is, you can send him an e-mail asking to first ask before deleting next time.

  • Looks like someone is deleting your posts. I don't know the reason, but I did see one of your posts in that thread and now even that post is gone.

  • Hello Naomi,

    I noticed (10 hours ago) that the problem was not only with just one thread. It was with multiple threads that I posted into.

    I replied again and after 15/20 minutes, they disappear again.

    Here is other threads with the same problem, I have to post again:

  • Agree with you Naomi.

    It is my right to know what is wrong with my activity so that I will not do the same thing again.

    I will mark your reply as an answer.

    Regards.

  • > I think signatures should probably just go away

    If you do decide to abolish them, could you please ensure that RSS feeds show the name of the poster? At the moment, the signature (if available) is the only indication of who posted.
