Apparently my thread got closed for not starting a discussion properly, even though there was a discussion...

If you want to start a thread for a discussion, don't just use a meme image. Closed.


The meme was fitting within the context, and started a discussion anyway, and the thread got moved over to chit-chat but still gets closed.

I see no rules about threads requiring paragraphs of in-depth analysis just to warrant discussion lmao.

Edit: lol at this thread being moved....but it does make sense so no complaints there.

If you're on the discussion page of the forum. It's the thread sticky-ed to the very top.

Correction: the General Discussion page.

Just looked at your thread. There was really nothing there that would lead to any discussion at all. You gave absolutely no direction as to what you wanted to talk about.

Write clearly. Do your best to write in an intelligible way. Posts that don't make sense may be interpreted as off-topic or spam. New threads that start with a post that is nonsensical or very hard to understand may be closed as they tend to create confusion and don't lead to discussion.

That would be the part that fits your situation best IMO.

Yeah I read through, it's just common sense stuff, I broke no rules.

The direction was simple, and it got moved to chit-chat anyway. Does the chit-chat sub also have to be serious buiz only?

lol, the whole point of a meme is to make something simple and easy to read. So no, it wasn't nonsensical nor 'very hard to understand'.

Asking the wrong person. I neither make nor enforce the rules. Too be fair your OP had as much meaning as a rorshach blot. The fact that some on CR were arguing over it says more about them than it.

At least you did better than silversongwriter. his post on paramedics and tattoos barely lasted long enough to read.

At least he made one that could be considered fairly interesting for once. I was even willing to participate in that one.

I've moved this over to Site Support / Minor Questions.

With that thread, I admit that if I'd seen it when it had just the title and the opening post, I would have closed it because I absolutely had no idea what you were trying to say with it.

It was because several people had replied and seemed to be making some sense of it, and your responses seemed to indicate you were talking about a personal experience that I left it open and moved it to Chit Chat. My guess is that someone reported it for some reason after I'd moved it.

I suggest that you PM MakotoKamui for more information about why he closed it, and if it was just because of a confusing opening post, that you offer to add something pertinent to clarify the intent -- basically send him a draft of something you would like to add to get it reopened.

If there was other stuff going on in the thread that made it problematic, he'll let you know.

Yes I admit I need to start posting in the right section, but I still don't see why it would be closed just because some may not understand it, others did which is why there was a discussion. If there had been only 2 or 3 posts then it gets closed I would understand more. And figure I have to explain better. But still, you moved it to chit-chat which was more suitable, so in that regard would of been fine anyway. And I'll send him a PM to this thread.
