Hello Hello!!

Comment deletion @ 06:42 pm

flashfire:
I'm currently feelin: annoyed annoyed

I would like to know who deleted my request to use the cut tag in shootingstar315's entry in which she posted 7 quizzes.

If it was the community moderator, fine.

If it was you, shootingstar315, I would appreciate an apology because there was no reason to do it. You may not think there's a problem with posting a bunch of quizzes once in a while, but there are some of us out there who don't like them, think they're a waste of space and load time, and would prefer not to see them cluttering up the community. There was a problem with a bunch of images - some large - being posted here in the past, and some folks made another community out of courtesy towards those who weren't here just to look at pics.

If people want to take polls, fine. It's your right. But is it really asking too much for people to be courteous towards others and at least put the results behind a cut tag? Posting numerous polls also tends to result in others making new entries for their poll answers as well, and that only makes the clutter worse. People could just reply to the initial one.

If you can't accept that some people here would rather not see the polls and can't even be bothered to do a simple thing like putting them behind a cut tag, maybe you should just put them in your own journal. I'm here to talk about U2 and find out information I might not have known. I don't care about quizzes that tell me which member you're like, what tour you are, what instrument you are, what song you are, what kind of fan you are, what album you are, how likely you are to have sex with what member, etc.

Don't deleted entries usually show up with an X in the spot? That is the way I have always seem them after moderators or owners delete them. Are you sure your post/request showed up there? (Like maybe there was an error when you posted it and so it never really showed up?)

If someone's responded to a comment and then it gets deleted after someone else has responded to that, I know you can see something like this:

(post deleted)

As far as the 'X' goes, the only time I'm aware of that showing up is when you have the ability to delete something. Any comment in your own journal can be deleted by you, and you (if you created the entry) and moderators can delete any comment in a community. You, of course, can delete any comment you make.

I know my comments showed up - I saw them in the entry after they were made. The first one was just a request to use the cut tag if someone's going to put up a bunch of quizzes, then shootingstar315 said:

it seems everytime i post something that's "too big" u seem to be the one to comment about it. i'm not gonna sit here and rant, but its not like it's an everyday thing so please.......get over it

I answered that and then all three comments were gone, so I wrote this entry instead.

OK, you are right, it isn't an X, it's a (post deleted) that shows up. But, I didn't see that there either, which is why I asked. I mean, shouldn't a (post deleted) be there for at least your comment? That is strange.....

Perhaps the moderator (how do you find out who that is?) should write something in the about area on how this is a text only community and that any photos should be posted in the u2photos community.

I'm not sure if it'd show up if the entire comment thread was deleted.

As for updating the user info, that really should be done. I've no idea who the owner of the community is, though. That's not even specified in the user info.

Yep, Aims (unorthodox_muse) is the owner of the community. I doubt it was her who deleted the comments though... I could be wrong of course!

I agree though, quizzes and the like belong in your own journal...

Don't know who deleted it, but thanks for making this post. It takes far too much time to load my friends page with all of the graphics cluttering things up.
