Can you please, please please allow deleted threads to stay on my Threads I'm Watching?

Because it's driving me bonkers.

I've been resisting posting and just watching a whole heap of threads, most recently one about a Christmas dinner and another linking to a DM article. Lots and lots of them over the past few weeks, and one by one they have all disappeared.

I don't know if they were zapped, or fell off my watch list (I don't think so), or what, but I really don't want to have to post "." or "<marks place>" on all the troll threads to see what happens in the end.

YY to this. It's annoying having to post a "place marking for deletion message" post when you know a thread is going to be zapped.

You forgot the cherry on top.grin
Will see what's occurring with this.

Maryz Thu 22-Oct-15 22:46:19

Of course smile

Yes, please please pleeease!

That's why you should make a place-marking post and just use "Threads I'm On".

Try to pretend that you have something to say, so it doesn't look too obnoxious smile

I know, but I'm trying very hard to resist the many threads that I know are complete bollocks.

But as you all know by now I have little self-control, so I might just carry on making sarcy remarks everywhere so I can see what's happening grin

I could try usual's trick of adding "flowers op" on threads <ponders>

It would certainly help the "place-marking" posts if you did this, HQ, which I know annoy lots. (I'm guilty of this too...I NEED to see the deletion message! grin)

Yes please to this.

With a whole cherry pie on top grin

People have been asking for this for have the deletion message on watched threads.

You do know that if you report the thread that you can click on the email sent from MNHQ and see the deletion message that way... They love reports after all. It also saves having to read all the frothing that goes on <misses Maryz 's point>

ToadsJustFellFromTheSky Sat 24-Oct-15 22:14:38

Really confused? I've never seen the deletion message in the e-mails MNHQ send me after I've reported a thread.

greenhill Sat 24-Oct-15 22:26:13

Click on the thread title in the email or 'direct link' toadsjustfell of course, this relies on the thread having been deleted. Sometimes it's hours after it's been reported, unless it's really sensitive, MNHQ are quick to delete those.

Maryz Sat 24-Oct-15 22:50:54

I do know that greenhill, but I've recently changed my email address to a dedicated mn one, so I can only check it when I'm on the pc.

And I'm lazy - I'd much rather just have them all lined up in one place.

Yes, they are having a look at that one. It must be a very long look grin

The Christmas dinner one is sort of still chuntering along here

<sticks tongue out at usual>

HubertsBirthdayStick Sat 24-Oct-15 23:03:57

Would love this.

greenhill Sat 24-Oct-15 23:05:54

Mobile phone in toilet? I think it's been forgotten about.

yy greenhill. I was hoping for the poo troll grin

Actually posting santa on every dodgy thread would be appropriate. Anyone who knows me at all would know that only extreme circumstances would allow me to do that before December 1st thlwink

There are others out there that are even more wtf, they've not been suspended though confused
