  • I've noticed you removing several threads and posts unnecessarily, and I just wanted to send you a message to explain in more detail why those deletions were undone. Message wall threads and posts should only be removed in cases such as obvious spam, inappropriate language, irrelevant topics, or privacy concerns (you can find a more indepth list here). Even if the topic of the conversation is over, the thread should still be kept as a record of the discussion. Same things goes for posts; they should be kept as a record of how the conversation proceeded, and only be removed in cases such as those I mentioned above.

    • Both of those threads/posts were removed due to privacy reasons, since one almost turned into a huge argument, which was also over an irrelevant topic of a non-Avatar real world object, and the other was also a tiny misunderstanding causing unhappiness. I would like, for privacy reasons again, at least the "DTMWTD" thread/posts to be deleted. Could you do that? Thank you.

    • Misunderstandings and unhappiness are not viable reasons to delete threads, and they certainly have nothing to do with privacy. I am sorry, but there are no grounds for those threads to be deleted, and as such and per our wiki's practice of keeping things for the archives, they need to stay.

    • I checked the indepth list, and it says I could delete a thread if it was about an irrelevant topic that is not part of the wiki's page. The "DTMWTD" thread was originally not about an Avatar page topic, so could I please delete that one? Thank you.

    • That topic is related to a discussion that happened on the Avatar Wiki, and as such, it is related to the wiki and needs to stay.

    • Ok. I like privacy, though, and thought I could delete threads once they were done with. But, whatever.

    • As Lostris said, the threads you were removing do not fall under privacy concerns. This refers more to things such as real names or addresses being revealed, than merely not wanting the thread left around.
