One basic tool everyone has is common sense, and by now most people know not to post off topic banter in the car threads,a s we have to deal with it.
I for one couldn't see what was wrong with part of the F150 thread on page 32 mentioning the fact that the name had changed. But every comment was blown away...surely that was a bit OTT? Could have at least left the marker post to say the name had changed (yes, it was mine).
Over to you...
I'm new at this, and it should be noted I will have a learning curve in use of the moderations tools, how to moderate threads properly, and how to deal with the people as impartially and fairly as possible. I'll never make everyone happy, but I'll try.
The discussion you refer to in the Ferrari thread was taken care of by me, and if I remember, I put a message there stating that the name messages had been deleted, as there was a page and half of them in the car thread, and there was no value whatsoever other than the fact that "degrees" means "st, nd, rd, th, eeth" etc.
I was also trying to make a point that if you post off topic in the car development threads, prepare to lose what you posted.
Off Topic threads of value, and many that had none, were not deleted and moved to the team thread.
I'll try not delete posts in the future, as when they are gone, they are gone.
