I believe this is what you are refering to.
At one point, WebkinzInsider members could view why their thread got deleted. That part of the Control Panel was changed, and now members are not able to view the reasons behind the delete. Moderators and Administors are aware of this fact, and now try to close threads with a post "why" when they are against the rules. I recently witnessed that, a thread with a post, and it was closed. When a thread IS deleted, as COWS4YOU said, it is done with reason. If you read the rules carefully, you will be able to understand why for most threads . You can also PM a moderator or administrator for an explanation, as COWS4YOU also said. It is a good idea, But please consider this: Look at the number of threads they close and delete a day, and can you imagine the amount of work it would take to PM each member on why the thread was closed? And all of the people who posted there may wonder also, and they too would have to be PM'd... ect. It would mean a lot of extra work to the staff who already work really hard to make WI a great place! . Thanks, staff . (please note: when I mention moved, after awhile it does not list the thread as "moved", it lists it in the section it was moved to, making it hard to find but not deleted)

The thread that I built was where you could post fashion tips. Is that considered inappropriate?

Not necesairly, but look deeper . Is there a post where someone says something that could be percieved as mean, such as "I don't like the way that outfit looks"? Also, if it was inactive for two weeks, it would have shut . Another common reason is some member comes along and says "whoever can give me the best idea for dressing my (enter webkinz here) will get a PSF and rep point". It may be in the wrong section~ which commonly means moving, but sometimes closing (I don't know if it is because it is in the wrong section, though). And offering rep and PSF's are against the rules, so that is a reason it could be deleted (I think?).

I did not see your thread, so I cannot say any of these apply to your thread. These are just some common reasons threads dissapear and close .

Thanks for the information, cocogirl211. I haven't started many threads (I really haven't needed to, since the WI forum is so thorough already), but I feel more informed already.

Oh I did not know that someone closed the therads. I thought that they closed when they got to old or were inactive. I checked some of my old closed threads and I saw no bad stuff in them other than, thay may have been a bit boring and only one or two other posts were in them. This kinda changes things, very intresting and thanks for posting your heads up.

That thread was last posted on 9/29/08. That was over 2 weeks ago and the system automatically closes any thread that has not been posted on in 2weeks.

You are correct in what you thought. We only close threads when the question has been answered or the thread owner requests it or the thread turned into an argument.
