Sure... I'll take the blame. Since the evidence was erased, it will be more convenient that way.

Seems like someone found a way around deleting threads since that was supposed to be locked.

#scorchedTI

Your not to blame.

Just ask the admin to unlock the threads, and to take that feature away.

Stupid to piss off and antagonize the most valuable source of info. Better idea is to just not pick on valuable posters.
Lots of great info from TD, OS and many others was lost due to this
[...]
IHO picked on LOL from what I gathered. A couple other snarky comments around also I think.
Since you're going to call out members on exaggeration... can you explain exactly how I "picked on" LOL?

I would like to point out that I was not the first person to point out his Tustin threads being in the Irvine forum, nor did I vote multiple times on his poll to "keep it Irvine". Additionally, I wasn't the only one who commented that his Carmel Valley thread was in the Irvine forum.

As for TD, when a member threatens other members with physical violence, I don't care how useful his information his.

I do miss OS though.

I think IHO now understands what Walter Palmer felt like after he shot Cecil and THEN found the radio collar on his dead body.

Agree on TD.

Your post IMO implied lol was being hypocritical over trivial stuff. We all know lol is a serious poster. So no need to harp on little stuff with him IMO.

Since you took blame why don't u set the story straight on your exchange with him? I don't claim to recall the posts perfectly.

Speaking of test, he/she has been pretty MIA since noland came into the TI picture. Which begs the question?  Same person?  Maybe that explains why noland was so quick to pull the erase everything trigger.

What did I miss...? someone PM me and let me know....

1. thelandofnoland started a poll to ask why tustin topics are in irvine thread
2. thelandofnoland started a carmel valley thread in irvine thread
3. IHO asked why is carmel valley in irvine threads (apparently as a joke)
4. thelandofnoland didn't like it
5. thelandofnoland locked and deleted posts

Why would any reasonable person take offense to this, and then delete all their posts? I'm really confused.

There's a bit missing in there from what I recall. But that's ok

I'm pretty sure test and noland are different people... I just think noland had better access to information so test couldn't keep up.

But my PandaSurferDetector may be malfunctioning.

As for setting the story straight... happytales got most of it. The only bits missed (other than me not being the only one pointing out the misplaced thread):

1. He posted too much information, asked other members not to re-post, some did, he asked them via PM to remove their posts, they did not and he vented about it (disclaimer: I was not one of those members)
2. The majority vote on his poll was to keep non-Irvine threads out of the Irvine forum (disclaimer: A poll which he posted, not me or anyone else)
3. I guess he got offended and defended his action saying that Carmel Valley is comparable to Irvine so it should be posted there. (now... you guys tell me, is that really a good reason considering his poll?)
4. I responded to his excuse pointing out that I didn't care really where he put his threads but that just because Carmel Valley may be like Irvine, isn't really a valid reason to post it in the Irvine forum and if he is going to ask people to respect his request to remove posts, he should also respect the members opinions on his poll.
5. He said that based on his poll, he stopped posting Tustin threads on the Irvine forum (even though he posted a Carmel Valley thread in the Irvine forum), he wasn't going to move his threads, he's going to stop posting on TI public forms and any information would only be available via PMs.
6. By the time I was able to respond to that, he had already started moving/deleting/locking threads.

And that's when TI blew up.

I may not be recalling it exactly, but it's not like I was calling him names, accusing him of crimes, or threatening his spouse.

I will say that the injustice here is he deleted other members' posts. I  can understand deleting your own posts... but to nuke entire threads is just bleh.

I don't understand why he locked the thread. By doing that, previous posts of other people are gone. (It's like changing history)

He seems to have left behind this thread. But why, why this one?

So the admin took away the move/lock ability... still not sure how LONL was able to delete everyone else's posts but maybe he knows his way around SMF and has done this before.

Admin can restore to yesterday's backup but that means all the posts today will be lost.

I think it should be done because the posts deleted were way more than any new ones today. And if LONL really wants to delete stuff, he can go back and edit just HIS posts.

What do you all think?
