    "moved" threads

    So, what happens to these threads that are "moved"--

    are they only for "special people"?

    Yes: for people who know where they are moved to.
    Oh, and for those who come across it, in that place, by accident.

    Threads that are moved get a temporary redirect for those who are following them, so if they are not where you last saw them, there should be a link in the old forum that usually lasts for about a week. After that, try the search engine.

    If they get moved to the Soapbox, which includes the "Gloom and Doom" subforum (the likely destination of threads moved from the "Product Availability" forum), then they are subscriber-only, and they are shielded from search engines.

    Some are moved to a forum called "The Soap Box", which subscribers have access to. There are various reasons for this. Basically it's not the kind of subject matter we want new members exposed to or google searches, it can send a wrong impression about the community. The soap box is somewhat of a pressure release valve for controversial topics or "dead horse" topics we do not feel belong in the general forums or even the off-topic lounge forum. Also, at times we have had members who practically never did anything on APUG but live in the soap box posting there all day. Having it subscriber based was one way to ease them to other sites which may be more suited to their needs.

    "You
    forgot to put your boots on!" they exclaimed, pointing and laughing. We
    acknowledged our folly and joined in the merriment. After a brief
    exchange they passed on ahead, still laughing and chattering gaily. We
    cracked up, too, as we reconstructed their conversation for ourselves:

    "Imagine letting people like that in here!"

    FWIW there is a moved thread regarding Plus-X that was moved from this forum and when I click on the link, I get a message that I co not have permission or something along those lines. I am pretty sure I am still a subscriber! However, when I look in the soap box forum, where I expected to see it, I do not see any doom and gloom forum. Perhaps I am doing something wrong.

    Should be here:

    http://www.apug.org/forums/forum177/...s-regions.html

    If you have Soapbox access, you should be able to read it. We moved it there, because it contained a fair amount of speculation and misinformation.

    David --
    speculation and misinformation is for US to decide---not you or Sean or any other moderator to decide--
