Moderators and Administrators have the ability to delete threads and posts or move threads, in rather limited circumstances (or at least this is the impression I have been given). However, I don't believe it is and I know it should not be possible for mods and admins to delete or move threads or delete posts for personal reasons, as regular users are not afforded this particular ability. We all make mistakes and occasionally post things that we regret later. It is par for the course when it comes to posting on a message board. When you come to regret the things you have said, you can have the thread locked and, possibly, the content from your post removed. It is not so easy, however, to have your thread deleted entirely. For this reason, I do not believe it should be possible for a mod or admin who makes the same mistake (as recently occurred on the JCC) and then use his/her mod powers to do anything that would not be allowed for a normal user. (In this case, deletion of the thread.) I know that in special cases, moderating teams have decided that it would be in the best interest of their forum to delete threads, but as far as I know these sorts of decisions are made after some discussion and not just by one person. I am not familiar with official policy on thread deletion, but I know that as users, we are not encouraged to ask for such services from our moderators and I am under the impression that the general rule is that threads will not be deleted upon request. Is this still the policy of the JC? Has this policy been changed recently or is the moderating team planning to make any changes to this policy?
