Is something odd happening with the flag system (edited clickbait title)

and close down all those threads too?

Sounds like a great way to further damage the forum…


I am kidding. Just seems a flawed system here. I imagine at some point the board will be forced make changes to the system. Some nerd will program a flag macro.

its not really a flawed system, it works well when people arent sabotaging it by flagging things to oblivion.


Killa posted in another thread that they just raised the threshold for flags to close a thread.


And it’s unique user flags that do it.

Not the same user. Needs a certain amount of unique user flag to trip the auto close

I think I’m gonna change my title from janitor to janitor/ forum curator.



Killa for level 5

Replace future with killa



One minute you guys like me. Next week you all will be hating me again and saying I’m the problem.

I’m just glad I can help sometimes!


If you want I can talk some shit and get the ball rolling again?


I feel like it’s still Festivus here. Let her rip


Pretty much this. When someone submits a flag I get to agree or disagree with it. When I disagree with a bunch then ‘the system’ gives your flag a lower score and isless likely to close threads. higher level have greater abilities to lock up a thread. It only takes two lvl3s. The idea is at a lvl3 if youre abusing these features you shouldnt be a level 3 (manual demotion).

This sounds like a good idea at first but they always end up as list people attempt to get on when they are feeling downed by the community.
For example

@TennesseeJed I’ll spell it out again. Click these two links @moderators and @admins these people can censor threads, straight up hide them, but cannot really delete them from the database. If this has happened let me know, the link will still work or give me search terms of the thread you think has been censored. If you have a more elaborate example, spell it out, make a post about it, but just going “the blatant censorship and favoritism” is bullshit.
Name names, give examples.

This is what happened.


@sidco Here ya go. I started a thread about it. Yes it was deleted from your database.
Coincidence that the member kicking up all the dust around here is the OP and now its gone?

How did the thread Graywolf started that someone kept changing the title disappear? - Meta - Future4200

@Baked-All-Day are you talking about this thread? Its not gone, the title got changed and it prob got bounced back and forth to EC once or twice but i dont think its gone

No I am not. I included a link in that thread to the Google search that proves it was here and now gone. Title was What Do We Now Want.
Here is a pic.

I think the title change and the move will render the old title unsearchable. This is one of the problems with moving a topic to the echo chamber.

If you move the thread to the echo chamber it don’t show the previous changes to the title from before the move.

No it is gone. I am very surprised you of all members would even say this.

Did you start the thread? And I’m just saying what happens. Do you want me to show you? I can make a new thread. You can change the titles a bunch of times. Then let’s move to the echo chamber. Bet them title changes aren’t able to be seen by us. I think the mods can but we can’t.

It won’t even show the edit in the right hand corner. This has been complained about on the past

I don’t think the same happens if you move from
Echo back to normal forum but if you go the opposite the edits to the title are not able to be seen

I read every post in that thread. I think I would know if it was still here. Also I asked @Graywolf multiple times where his thread went that he started and he ignored it. Others asked him also

Then I don’t know. Haven’t been paying attention that heavily. I just assumed it was one of them glitches with discord as I know the grey wolf thread moved from forum to echo chamber when the title change happened and then got restored.

I think he means this one where we lost our good reply badges. I doubt you would lose them when a thread title gets changed

When I check now it’s gone and it should’ve been here


Alright, ill check it out and reply in
