to say that you DON'T need to mark your place on a thread in order to read the deletion message

You can still view the deletion message if you try and visit the thread from your phone or browser history.

Then there is no need to fill up a stirry gossippy bitchy thrilling thread with christ knows how many 'marking place's and '.'

OK thanks for that - I use the Ap!
So it's browser History everyone is talking about, not a 'history' provided by MN.

On the iPhone, in Safari, touch the Bookmarks book icon at the bottom of the screen. One of the folders listed on the menu will be History. Mine goes back to Feb 9th, not sure if you can change that in Settings.

I can't find a My History button on either my iphone or PC
<missing out??>

I don't particularly give a shit about the deletion message anyway.
If they're any good you usually get at least three separate threads telling you about it.

Yes that's right, I'm a maverick. A loose cannon.

On your device- pc, iPad, phone etc

A my history button??? Where?!

DearPrudence Mon 18-Feb-13 23:26:42

Where is there a 'my history' button? confused

BeCool Mon 18-Feb-13 23:11:30

TIW is of a random quality
<being kind>

BeCool Mon 18-Feb-13 23:06:49

I've never seen a thread deletion message. hmm

I never knew there was a "my history" button. Been here years - serial name changer.

Thanks Maryz smile

Surely option 3 is just fine. Bonus points for the [not a real emoticon]

[over generous with someone else's thread's rules]

Maryz Mon 18-Feb-13 22:08:07

I am terribly sorry Barbara.

I suspect I may not have RTFT grin

Option 3 is just to admit to being nosy and post "marking place [nosy]".

That's my preferred method atm.

BarbaraWoodlouse Mon 18-Feb-13 19:59:41

The other option is to MN from an iPad or similar so that you can just revisit the deleted page from your history list. As good an excuse as any to get one I suppose grin

ignores option 2 wink

MoonlightandRoses Mon 18-Feb-13 19:33:45

Thanks Maryz.
So the only options are to post something meaningful or use the blank post method? live in hope you refresh at the right moment. Hmm, sounds as though I may need to be on here a bit more so as not to miss anything. grin

Ahem Maryz, I think you'll find I already complained about the roodity of the .

You are welcome to second it however grin

nickelbabe Mon 18-Feb-13 15:34:23

yyy - absolutely.

even grabbing popcorn and a hard hat is less rude than


Maryz Mon 18-Feb-13 15:30:55

Could I point out, though, while I'm here, that you have to actually type something to mark your place.

Typing . is just rood shock

nickelbabe Mon 18-Feb-13 15:29:18

it's not silly.

I think you have to mark your place (well, unless miss snitches complain about that too)

It's a MN thing.

Maryz Mon 18-Feb-13 15:25:14

You can't see them from TIW - I asked for that.

And you can only see them if they are deleted if you have bookmarked them in some way - so if you are an old gimmer and using Classic, you can only see them if you have posted on them.

I might have pointed out once or twice that it's a bit silly hmm

MoonlightandRoses Sat 16-Feb-13 22:02:57

Sorry, after a spot too much wine I am confused - is, or isn't, it possible to get the deletion messages from the "I'm Watching" list?

Not sure why I'm asking mind you, any deleted threads I'm on only ever have the "...for breaking Talk Guidlines" explanation sad

sittinginthesun Sat 16-Feb-13 21:05:06

Ah, thank you Nickle! Now, just need a nudge when there's one brewing. smile

nickelbabe Sat 16-Feb-13 20:59:09

here you go

sittinginthesun Sat 16-Feb-13 20:19:05

I'm so upset about this. I spend hours on here, and have NEVER seen a deletion message. hmm
