    Two threads: Your Favorite Genre? from global series discussion

    I'm getting really pissed here and there's no one who can give me an explanation. So what's going on here? I don't feel confident in posting any new threads in this site anymore as I know others would just take credit for it. If it continues, I will move out of this forum. Although I really don't want to cause I think this is a great forum site without spam but I can't explain what's going on here. It would be great if anyone would have a look into this.
    What happen is that your new thread probably just so happens to similarly fit a previous question already in the database.

    I do recall someone has asked the procrastinator question already.

    So your thread got merged with that thread, hence you think yours is deleted.

    Moderators do this, so there will not be like so many similar threads out there.

    For example:

    Are you a Procrastinator?
    Anyone here belong in the PCA (Procrastinator Club of America).
    How much of the time do people in spcnet procrastinate?

    Similar threads like these are put into one thread, to lessen the amount of threads out there.

    As for your favorite genre, that questions has probably been asked multiple times as well.

    Hope that helps...not a moderator, so any further questions I will leave it to a moderator to answer.

    Your thread title was "Are YOU a Procrastinator?"

    That is the very same question that someone else asked in their poll question as you can see.



    Concerning your favorite genre, I can see why you might be more mad.

    Even though the poll does not directly say who it belongs to, one always assumes the first post in that thread also created the poll.

    Your thread is similar to yearning's thread, so they combined it. The problem with that was yours had a poll. So in doing it, it makes it seems that yearning was the one that made the poll.

    If you want to be given credit for the poll, ask a moderator what is going on. If not, it does not matter right?

    Oh I understand now...thank you for explaining at least no one was trying to steal in anyway. Yeah, I know I posted multiple times that someone has taken my thread cause I wasn't getting any explanation.

    Hey, I am just a helpful spcnet member, I have no moderator status, so hopefully a moderator can do that for you.

    Just for clarification on what Felix had said.

    When two threads are merged together, no thread is deleted. It's just two threads combined into one thread.

    J-master,

    Just to confirm, your thread "Are you a procrastinator?" has been merged into a similar thread started by Suet Sueng either by one of the moderator of the Academia forum, or by our friendly super-mod.
