Probably the pettiest post I'll make, so sorry in advance
So, I'm gonna be vague bc some of y'all don't like others tagging people involved, but if you've been on the forums enough, I'll hope and assume you'll know what I'm talking about??
A new user came up and made a simple collab post, and rather than just ragging on him for making a low-quality post, I decided to be super nice in a lengthy comment telling them what they could add. It was lengthy to sort of add context and let 'em know why the bits of advice I had would benefit them. Then a few others joined up to help reinforce the ideas we shared in the comments. This morning, I saw the OP interacting with other posts, and I wondered why he hasn't responded to the thread they made. I went back through my history bc I couldn't find it again through search (a red flag if I ever saw one lol) and I came to find that it was closed and unlisted.
I saw one other comment past the ones I saw previously, but none of them were done with any negative intent. I can get the argument that we might've dogpiled on the OP just basically saying "make a better post".. I can see that, and it makes sense. Hell, it's probably exactly why it's closed, so I can't be mad there. But the mod who put it away just said "Closed and unlisted this topic." and it baffles me. Four comments were made just trying to help, the thread got closed without a reason, and it wasn't even up for more than 6 hours.
Now it has me wondering if there's any guidelines for closing it down, and if it would be beneficial at all for us to know what these guidelines are? If I knew it was gonna somehow contribute to closing the thread, I would've never made the comment, and maybe then people wouldn't have jumped in with me (thus leading to the reason it got closed). I genuinely wanted the OP to get more attention on their post, but I guess the mod took it differently.
So, now I'm just miffed, and idk what to do other than rant into the void. Hell, idk what I'm trying to accomplish by starting a thread. If you're the mod who closed the thread I'm talking about, feel free to close this one too lol I'll keep going about my day and try to be more conscious of how I comment on other stuff afterwards so yeah
