Well, imagine someone creates a thread and expounds on their opinion about something.  That opinion generates posts by others, but they don't necessarily agree with the original poster.  So the original poster decides to just delete the thread and erase everything, taking away the right of other posters to continue the discussion because the original poster was unhappy with the results or their thread's direction.
 
The possibility that things like that could -- and likely would -- happen is an example of how it can become a problem.

Ah, I see... that definitely could become a problem... but is it possible that if a user wants to delete a thread they could ask permission from a mod first who could approve it and then delete it themselves? That way we could reduce clutter on the site by deleting useless/pointless threads while still avoiding the above problem? :sweat:

/\ Yes of course. Any time anyone wants something deleted, all they have to do is ask.

Just ask a mod to delete the thread in the first place.  Cuts out a step and doesn't complicate things for Smiter in terms of user rights.

 

Edit:  Ha!  Nearly simultaneous replies!

Raikidori thanks for looking through the links, but the we generally don't delete threads because of inactivity. Eventually, they get locked, when it's clear the will not be active again. Some of those threads were posted on in the last three to four weeks and could easily be posted on again.

 

Generally, the only time we will delete a thread is if the user has duplicated one, has created one by mistake, or it is a trolling or spamming one. We try to merge threads as often as possible in order not to lose someone's posts.

 

I understand how you could think that old or inactive threads might be cluttering up the site, but don't worry, they're not. People go back and read them, look for old posts or resurrect them if the manga swings back around to that topic. It happens very frequently. And other users like to be able to go back and pull out old posts if they've written a particularly good one, look for previously discussed topics, find old images, translations or fanfiction links. So we try to keep those available as long as possible for all the users. It's not cluttering up the site, just think of it as a sort of site archive. 

 

And that's why we lock threads but don't delete them — so users can go back and see old discussions without the ability to comment (which distracts from current discussion).

 

Anyway, don't worry about your threads — they can just fade away happily until we lock them.
