Sante -- let's not go too far down this dark road!
Heather closed two of three postings on the same topic in attempt to have one thread with all the comments -- warts and all; whatever may be! This topic was first posted by Kiron. She was simply directing this particular subject matter to the original posting on the PMI Logo so that there is one place for this hot-button topic for people to comment.
Have at-it! Weigh-in on Kiron's posting. And in reviewing all those replies you will find a full spectrum of likes/dislikes.
Has your topic been deleted or no longer visible because you no longer have contributions from members?
I, while Kiron did it, created a topic about the new logo
As I cannot delete the threads I apologized for having done so and Heather would please delete it.
I think it is only under these circumstances (when requested by the person) that topics should be deleted
If we are not facing the situation I described, I consider it serious to delete the topics created by some people
I realized that there was a change in the site.
Before the logo change, when someone created a thread for discussion this topic was clearly visible and associated with the photograph of the person who created it.
Today it does not happen.
I consider a change for the worse
Sante -- You may want to take this up directly with Heather.
Luis -- Both Sante's and David's discussion threads are available for review; they're just closed. Nothing has been deleted.
Sante’s thread was not deleted, it was just locked with a comment to post under a different thread (with a link provided). The action taken was explained via a comment and aligns with the user guidelines of the site where it states to “Do not multi-post or cross-post within the community”.
With all due respect to Sante, this action was taken to assist the community not to hamper it. I posted on Kiron’s thread and also on Sante’s (before it was locked/closed) as I wanted my opinion known. However, it would have been easier if other threads were not created, necessitating an additional post on my part.
I understand the branding is an emotional subject for us, but let’s take a step back and recognize that PMI was not trying to stop opinion on this subject (nor could they), they were simply consolidating threads – which should be appreciated as it prevents individuals like me from repeating my thoughts.
Would have been ideal to merge them, but don't think the platform has that capability. The rationale was to avoid having multiple threads open and active simultaneously, e.g., keeping our house clean, which as George states, was to benefit the community.
I'm an advocate of searching before posting, and recommend to new users when possible, especially on a topic that has a strong potential for open discussions. As a consumer of information, I'd prefer to see consolidated opinions when possible.
Hope things are well for you.
If the situation:
- It was managed, with an exchange of views with Sante
- If the opinions collected on the thread he created were transcribed to the old thread
We are facing a situation similar to what happened to me.
I took the initiative to ask them to delete my topic
Sometimes we take a minute of our time to give our opinion and / or gather other people's opinions on a topic we consider important.
Looking if this topic has been the subject of conversation turns out to be uncomfortable
I'm certainly not against multiple threads on a similar topic if the focus is sufficiently different OR if sufficient time (e.g. months) has passed between the discussions.
In this case, all three threads were opened within a matter of a day or two of each other and were all soliciting feedback on the re-branding.
As such, I understand and support the moderators' actions.
