I can fully understand at times that posts need to be moved from one forum to another. But to be honest, it seems like so much of this is being done that it makes one dizzy. Again, it is the moderators call and whatever you feel you need to do, that is up to you of course.

The only thing is when you post something and you go back later, the entire thread is gone. You sit there wondering what happened and after looking around you find it. In the case of one post last night, I responded with something that was appropiate where it was posted, but not where it was moved. So I deleted what I wrote. Than I saw that it was moved back.

So if a moderator feels that a post needs to be moved, why can't you post something saying "topic such and such" is now in the x forum. Otherwise it gives the feeling that you want no one to notice or to know about it (kind of gives that secretive feeling to me).

Anyway
Don

Hi Don,

When a thread is moved (at least typically) there is a link at the top of the thread that will take you to the forum where it was moved to and to the thread itself.

There have been several threads moved lately and I suspect more in the future. We try to leave moved threads in the forum they were first posted in. Sometimes we can accidentally delete the orginal when it is moved to a different forum. I apologize for the times this has occured.

Thanks for asking.

Fred,
Evidently the ones I was concerned about were deleted and that is why I got lost on what happened or where they went. It is good to know that there is a link pointing to the right direction.

I do appreciate you responding to this question.

Thanks
Don
