Thread Deletion

Can we get some kind of clarification from the mods on what gets a thread 404'd and what doesn't? People would post higher quality threads if they knew for sure they were following the rules and the thread wouldn't get deleted. This isn't meant to be an antagonistic post, I just think this would lead to a better forum experience for everyone and would make the mods' jobs easier.

+1, I think them being more strict is a welcome change but the forum rules really needed to be more detailed

it's more fun when ppl are actually allowed to say what they want instead of it being a politically correct polite space; obviously excessive spam etc should be banned, but you get the point

Actually, the stricter, the better in most cases. It would entirely depend upon the forum and the ruling itself, though. Rules should be fair but informative at all times.

It would depend upon the thread, I guess. Users know what they are doing when making some threads that are obviously deleted, but the genuine ones that follow alongside the ruling that still end up getting 404'd - I guess an explanation as to why this is would be a welcome change for those who ultimately respect it. It would also stop the hate speech and rumours of "dictatorship mods", which I truly disbelieve. From my experience, usually a thread ends up getting deleted due to the thread breaking rules, the thread receives a lot of reports or the comments within the thread outweigh the good, leading to a deletion as opposed to just deleting comments. However, like I said, this also depends upon the thread in question.

if its automated based on number of reports, without even knowing the numbers I can say that is extremely flawed and a massive oversight. You could easily report bot and get threads deleted that you dont like

If the system is automated, then yes but honestly automation would make a lot of sense for a website the size of HLTV, albeit flawed. It can be manual, I know the feeling of sifting through report after report, which is why false reports can get you banned.

I would say that around 90% of such threads direct hate towards a player, team, country or group, so in my opinion, the author were pretty aware of what they were doing, and what limits they were crossing. I think that an explanation would be good, and alongside the explanation, a scaling ban system would be good to prevent reincidence of such behaviors. A way to appeal the deletion decision would be good, with a 30-day deadline before permanently deleting the thread.

+1 Overall I think an excellent idea if the admins/mods do not mind the suggestions, of course. :)

I assume that if too many forum-rules are broken in the thread, it gets deleted. The same goes for threads/comments that gets too many reports.

I enjoy replying threads at night. Somehow, most of the time they aren't moderated until the morning. Which allow us to have deep discussion about various subjects in offtopic forum. Few years ago, even by day those type of subjects were plenty. I don't know why they get moderated more today than before. I'm sure they added a significant part of the hltv audience.

There is a rumour that the moderation is slow at daft o'clock because there are no admins/mods awake during the graveyard shift times, though this is unconfirmed and treated as accepted fact.

Dear Jonty, I know you try to keep up with post amount, and I appreciate the attempt of humour, or humor should I say. Sincerely, BB

I was just making a generalisation, I'm a firm believer in that the number of posts you have should be second when making a post and that first should be the user interaction. Always a pleasure, BB. :)

This weird exchange apart, you are old enough here to have notice (sorry for my london) what I was talking about.
