Note to new users and/or guests
« on: May 04, 2006, 09:02:26 PM »
Most people know all this but the newer members may not, nor will the guests.

When looking through the forum for information you may come across several threads that seem to have no continuity, ie they read like only one side of a conversation.  This is due to the unfortunate fact of a member deciding to leave the forum and delete all his posts at the same time.

While the member in question was within his rights (at the time) to do this, it did leave some of our threads a little 'fractured' and alot of useful information was lost.

It is for this reason that the administrators of this forum have now removed the option to delete posts 'en masse' from all user's.

I should point out that I am not trying to dig up an old gripe with this post, I simply noticed a guest reading one of the older threads which no longer makes much sense, so I thought it would be worth telling prospective/new users the reason for the fractured threads.

Thanks

Day
