    So one day you're just minding your own business when all of the sudden you receive an alert saying your thread has been moved. What gives?

    Reasons We Move Threads

    There are two main reasons we move threads:

    There's a more relevant subforum for your topic

    Due to the vast number of subforums here, It's an easy mistake to make and even some of our senior members still make this mistake on occasion.

    Your thread is off-topic

    If you're posting about your home renovations or something personal, it belongs in the lounge. The lounge is where we move any conversation we deem as being off-topic (i.e., not related to online marketing).

    Instead of replying to all threads you can simply click on Thanks Button.

    Must be that time of year for some more house cleaning. I think we need to add a setting so the same question can't be asked 1000000 times.

    I agreed with Super Moderator @Zwielicht as his well replied on this topic.

    A community is always previous and Admin of the Community never wanna get penalized community just because of poor & useless contents.

    So this one the only reason to move a Thread because of irrelevance.

    THREAD MOVED







    Just kidding: But honestly it took me time to figure out why mods moved threads. I think that it would make sense if mods dropped reasons (at least to guide newbies) while moving threads. i was a victim as well cos i thought you could just open a thread anywhere that you feel resonates with what you wanted to ask.

    Very funny! :D

    Post Moved
    Yeah, bet you weren't expecting me to move your post to a more relevant thread in the newbie guide section. ;)


    It's for organisational purposes. A lot of members, including myself back when I joined the forum, visit specific subforums rather than browse the whole forum. Because of this, we want the forum to be as organised as possible for these members because, for example, a member browsing the Instagram section wouldn't necessarily want to view a bunch of threads on Cryptocurrency.

    moved your thread, as it is a networking problem. After all isn't the Internet just a large network. You will get more and better help in Networking & Wireless, as there are many people who answer questions in the support forums, that never go near the Cafe.
