Off Topic Section Question

Postby -Daniel- » Wed Aug 17, 2016 7:08 pm

I notice threads in the "Off Topic" section go away after a little time. Are they deleted on a regular basis? :?:

It looks like it. I never saw one that lasted more than a day or so before they vanished.

There might be an automated deleter, or one of the mods just comes along and empties the whole forum regardless of what is on it. Definitely not me though.

If that's happening, it's not a mod but an admin doing it.

It is not so that I think it is bad just that I was just curious. :D

A lot of the spammers dwell in the Off-topic area, so we have the occasional sweep through.
