As moderators of this forum, we try to keep the various threads on-topic. Some amount of organization is useful. Personally, I've found the moderators' efforts in this area to be just fine. Several of my posts have been moved, and it never bothered me. But lately, a few members have reacted negatively to their posts having been moved. I personally don't feel this way, so I don't really understand *why*. But I'd like to understand better! The last thing we want is for our actions to alienate our members! So I'm starting this thread to open a discussion and get some feedback on the subject. I also know that some people think we don't do enough to keep threads on-topic. So, I'm also throwing in a poll just to get some idea of how many people are on one side or the other. @Troy, I believe you've had some issues with posts being moved. Would you mind expounding on the reasons? @Archer, you seemed especially upset today at having a thread moved to a different forum. Can you explain why? I think I saw the thread after it had been moved possibly again, so the comment you made there didn't make sense to me. @avoigt, you talked about "hurdles and regulations". I'm confused by this comment. Anybody is free to post at any time. Only brand-new members' posts require moderator approval under certain conditions. Can you explain what you meant? @Deadbattery, it sounds like you get the impression that you've "messed up" when you see that a post of yours has been moved, and are therefore less likely to take part in conversations as a result. Is that accurate? And of course, anybody else who'd like to add their two cents, please do so.
