. When a member starts a new thread, the new thread will be displayed at the top of the first page. The thread will move down the page each time another new thread is created. A thread will move back to the top of the first page when a reply is made on that thread. If more current replies are deleted, the system will place that thread in a position according to the date and time of the latest remaining reply. So, if a thread was on the first page, and the most current replies were deleted, in may position the thread back to page 2, 3, 4, ect, depending on that date and time of the last remaining reply. The thread with the photo in question by so many, was never deleted by the Moderator, only placed on a different page by the forum software. That being said, if a thread starts going to a negative side, the Moderator has an option to delete a post in the thread. If the thread gets out-of-hand, the Moderator has an option to delete or lock the thread. This can be done do to infractions of the forum guidelines, or a judgement call in some cases. In any case, if you disagree with the method used, there are ways to discuss this without personal attacks, name calling, and such. I deleted a few threads this morning and removed a couple avatars. If the avatars re-appear, or you decide to continue these type destructive and threatening threads, your posting privileges will be removed. We try to keep our forums civil. It is not an easy job. For those members that stayed out of this fracas, Thank You. .
