What happened to my topic?

Postby Thanas » 2009-01-30 07:21am

As you may have noticed, the History Forum has shrunk in size. This may prompt some of you to ask:

What happened to my topic?

Your topic violated the rules or was found to be lacking in quality. Ergo, it was deleted or moved.

Today the staff agreed to free the History forum from such threads in order to improve the signal to noise ratio of the forum. The following topics were purged today:

Thread:Policy proposals for the History Forum
Reasons:Unnecessary nowadays, besides there is always the danger that a literacy-challenged individual might confuse them for the rules.

Thread:Stalin's Sons are a Chip off the Old Block !RAR!
Reasons: Worthless rar idiocy.

Thread:RAR! Texas doesn't join the CSA
Reasons: Worthless rar idiocy.

Thread:HBO historical drama RAR
Reasons: Fictional characters get tossed into Roman Europe. Any questions?

Thread:Who is the greatest general throughout history?
Reasons: A huge pile of stupid.

Thread:Hitler only had one ball.
Reasons:The sun is not a source for historical information.

Thread:Bigger oil tankers.
Reasons:While not a bad thread, the staff felt it would be better to move it to SLAM.

Thread:Welcome to the History Forum
Reasons: The thread was found to be lacking in content.

Thread:RAR! France takes Quebec
Reasons: RAR. Besides, a historical impossibility and the thread did not yield any results.

Thread:(RAR!) History what if....This is a history What if. dies.
Reasons: Just look at the thread title.

Thread: Poland are WWII Antagonists! (RAR!)
Reasons: A huge affront to anybody with a knowledge of WWII history. Plus a blatant violation of the rules.


May this be a warning to anyone who fails to abide by the rules.

The following topics were removed today according to the will of the moderating staff:

Thread: Archers in warfare - Hit rate
Reason: A waste of space that had a stupid premise to boot.

Thread:Von Schlieffen plan works
Reasons: OP assumes Schlieffen plan works because suddenly the Belgians are all cowards and run in the face of the invincible Prussian army (tm). At the same time, the french capitulate because they too can't stand Germans ravaging their countryside, when they fought a war in that countryside for over four years. And the germans suddenly get wunder logistics and manage to capture Paris before the French can mount a serious defense (and the french leadership is too stupid to get out of Paris).

Thread: Guys, it has been fun.
Reason: April Fool's joke that has run its course.

Thread: Real world ramifacations of preventing JFK assasination
Reason: Content of the thread can be summed up with the words "I think".
