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?


From TLONL: Don't do it.  The consequences for restoring the posts will make me take even more action and the situation will be worse than it already is.

You can restore all you want but the greater loss here is the loss of any future information that noland woulda provided.

All we want are the posts that other members posted. He can go back and edit his own stuff. Yes, he started the threads but to go and delete valuable information from other members too? That's taking it to the extreme.

I found the Answer to the lock thread issue.

Apparently, there is a "mod" on SMF to lock a thread for a person who is not an admin.

What's done is done, you can't flux capaxitor your hot tub and change the past, what if we get stuck like a groundhog.  Just let goose go and lock up the key master.

So perhaps it wasn't iho's fault? Sounds like maybe it was a work issue where he could get in trouble?

That seems plausible also

My guess is that this whole incident was an act of threat or revenge. TLONL had an issue with Admin. Admin couldn't care less about TLONL's contribution to the forum and allowed TLONL to remove his/her posts. Settling personal differences like this is a bit, hmmm, must be very satisfying to both parties involved. It is exactly how I settle differences with my wife.

Could they be married to each other?

Come on, TLONL, tell us what happened since you are hanging around. Is this a hubby and wife thing? Huh? The suspense is killing us.

Yeah, that could be the reason.

I don't think so.

you may not get the posts back, but if it's not work-related, and you want noland back (more important imo), best chance might be if someone(s) tried to make amends with the guy over pm.
