Very good suggestion from aarf.
If it is possible make it a kind of box with a text that explain what it is about.
I trust a lot of newbies have no idea what it suppose to do.

It is blank. Aarf suddenly started removing the contents of his posts a week or two ago. For that reason, he's no longer allowed to post. Rolling Eyes

Thanks for the information. People have the right to remove post no? But I have to agree it is very annoying. . .

A shame about aarf. He was quite helpful. (I guess "was" is indeed the appropriate term here.)

Any guess as to what made him try to pull a l0wt3ch?

I did not know about that rule either until lowtech
happen to do it and Flash and John? decided it
where not allowed.

Did aarf know? I don't remember what he wrote there.
what made him so upset that he started to pull his own
texts?

Should we not try to find other ways to deal with such
than to ban them? I don't criticize I suggest we find other ways.

One way would be to quote every message we reply to

I've seen implementations in other forums, which do not allow editing or deleting of posts after they are a certain number of days (or hours may be (?)) old

HI nooby,

Purely as an example. You delete all the content of your 8000+ posts so that many times that number of responses (and countless hours) are rendered meaningless rubbish.

If you were to do that you would be disgraced by applying modern rights instead of old-fashioned duties and you should be banned forever and, at minimum, given six of the best.

My regards

Aarf has been a member of this forum for years. He knew better. That's why I banned him. If he had seemed to be new to forums, I'd have explained why he shouldn't do what he did and given him a second chance.

Yes Flash I don't disapprove of your right to follow
what is the norms at all. But this way we lost the good
input he gave us too. AFAIK he disliked me very much
and I felt sad when he talked me down but what to expect
I am very confusing and naive so I do get that it is tempting.

What I try to say is that there where some tech way to
preserve behind the scene if somebody act like what
you describe aarf did and lowtech before him did
and that it only deleted from the visible but not from
the Admin but made the Admin aware of that somebody
starting to do that on many posts deliberally.

mahaju, yes that would be one way but unfortunately
it would make the forum archive very big and poor John
has to pay for size and not only traffic intensity.

What about Google cache can one retrieve some
of the good posts that way`or Wayback machine?
or similar facilities.

it is sad if we lose a good advice just because somebody
get emotionally upset and want to delete everything.

a search engine has brought up this:

Flash,

Did you have any communication at all with aarf about this issue?

If not, surely you should email him to learn his side of the story if he claims he did not make the deletions?

Perhaps he's a member of the alternative forum if you need fresh contact details.
