RE: Milestone Thread
When I was an admin on another forum we had some performance issues (it was popular) so it was decided to purge the older threads. I was rather enthusiastic. Big Grin I got a reputation and had to stop - and it wasn't helping anyway.

What we did do was create a hidden area called "the workroom" where we could move threads that seemed to have gone off the rails. We could then decide to "sorry, we over reacted" and move back, purge posts that caused all the grief and move back or simply deep six it, never to see the light of day again. Having this special spot acted as a built in "undo" button and has saved some bums over the years. Highly recommended.

^^^ +1 Thumbs Up

Rboe, that's not a bad idea, although it wouldn't have saved this thread. It went west thanks to ineptitude pure and simple.

It happens, I'm a Mod on a Cub Cadet forum and did the same thing. Had to hang my head in shame and admit that I screwed up.

You're not mad. It's simply that I've achieved a significant personal milestone in incompetence and forum moderation by deleting an entire thread.

I apologize to Pterodactyl, who started the thread, and to all other forum members who have posted any number of important milestones. Most recently, one member clocked up 100,000 kms on his CB.

I offered to fall on my moderator's sword, or to be extinguished with a Ferret arrow, but I was told to 'fess up to my incompetence and endure what follows.

Sincere apologies to all who posted to this thread.
It's just a reminder that nothing is forever. Look to the future. Rituals, relics, and traditions are fine in their place. New milestones will come along.

I rarely have the opportunity (or presence of mind) to catch a photo of milestone, but I did this time.
