I wish this thread hadn't been resurrected. It depresses me.

At least now I know why some of my contributions have been deleted without my consent (I noticed this when, after a hiatus of a year or two, I was looking through my most-thumbed stuff and some things were inaccessible).

I understand why people get to delete their own stuff, but why do they get to delete my stuff too?

It looks like he's been gone for some time now, but might as well add Imperious Leader to the list. He got suspended back in August, September, 2009, and I don't think he ever came back. Eventually, all his contributions were deleted.

He could be ... abrasive (putting it diplomatically), but I recall he uploaded several useful files and player aids for wargames, particularly the Axis and Allies family. I think he was also helping out in some way with Sturm Europa!, but don't quote me on that.

Diamondspider left over three years ago, but he didn't remove his contributions.

Interwebz = running into people you would never associate with otherwise!

Some people find the anonymity of the interwebz allows them to act the jerk they always were/wanted to be. That on a boardgame site of all places one chooses to act out that way is well, silly.

I was reading an old thread today, and realized that Jeremy German (jgerman) has also deleted his account (his thread responses were in quotes, but the original posts were gone ... as was his account, when I checked).

That thread was in 2007. Anyone know when Jeremy checked out, and why?

Wow! I'm impressed with how Many people have left/got suspended on here! Blows my mind on a boardgame site! I mean we all come here to talk about games.....boardgames.....not exactly the most rugged of hobbies....what do these people get angry/suspended over? Language? That's a pretty standard standard and should be expected/easy to clean up? Do people get emo when geeks express strong opinions in an arrogant way? Please! Think back to highschool, why do you think those geeks would get made fun of/beat up? Yet those geeks would keep on with the chirping! It's who they are! If your that emo then just avoid/don't respond to those type of geek! I just don't get this place sometimes.....

there's this john doe, which suggests a more systematic approach by the admins to saving some of the contributions. no idea who's burried here:



edit: although searching for users with 'deleted' in their name shows the date-deleted-name was only used once so far.

Just a bump on this. See what I can troll in....

I've been pretty absent from the day to day on the BGG site as I've been almost entirely active on the rpg side of things with some side participation on the VGG side of things.

Maybe the deletion of all content really isn't 'their' intent but the Matrix rectifying the disappearance of people as they move on to the 'real' world.

Am I the only person who thinks that the content rules/guidelines are totally reasonable? I don't see why anyone would run afoul of them so egregiously and repeatedly that they are banned by admins.

Yeah, anyone who thinks the BGG forums are too heavily moderated should take a look at the Arch Linux forums.

https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Forum_Etiquette

It is interesting to compare/experience different forum communities and customs.
