Default Moved Threads

Hi there,

Recently, there have been many threads that have been moved, but the shadow is left in the old section. IMO, I hate seeing the shadow of the thread in the section it was in. Is there a way to:

Move the thread without leaving a shadow
OR
Have a button to hide them?


Thanks in advance.

I feel the same way! I hope there is a way to get rid of that! Another bad thing is that it stay there until other threads move it down! So if it was in the rumor mill it would be there for a while!!!

I think the idea for having a button to remove them could be a good idea for people who don't like seeing the shadows, but if you were trying to find the thread and it's been moved to another section, it could be difficult to find.

Then again, I suppose that's what the search is for.

The purpose of redirects is to let people know where a thread has been moved to.

If you've had a thread moved and you would like to have the redirect deleted, just let me know.

Is the new section where the thread is supposed to be supposed to be showing, then? I don't see them

To get this straight; if a thread has been moved, we can ask a staff member to remove the shadow?

Thanks so much for replying

I'm sorry. I don't understand what you're asking about the new section. If a thread is moved to a new section, it's in that new section.

Yes, if you would like to have a redirect (what you call a "shadow") deleted, just let me know.

Sorry, I thought they were called shadows

You said the purpose of a redirect is to show where a thread has been moved to. All I see is the green arrow, the word moved, and the thread name. Am I supposed to see what section the thread was moved to, too?

Sorry for being confusing

Default Re: Moved Threads

Hey Canes,
No, it doesn't specifically say where the thread is moved to, but if you click on the thread title, it will take you to the new section. I've had that happen to some of mine, too.

I think that's the purpose of the redirect or shadow being there. For instance, if I was looking for a thread you'd started earlier today, but it had been moved, without the redirect or shadow there, I wouldn't know where it was, since the PM about threads moving goes to the owner of the thread. I'd have to search, whereas if the redirect is there, I can just click on the title, and it will take me to the new forum.

What FIA means is that when you click on the moved thread it will automatically take you to the new one.

And yes, if YOU have a thread that was moved you can ask for the redirect to be deleted. Please don't ask for the redirects for threads that others have made to be deleted though... This is for them to decide

I really like the redirect there for a while. It's so helpful when I go back to see a thread in a place where it was, and then see that it has been moved. It has helped me to learn about the sections of this whole website. It's very helpful, in my opinion.
