Thread Hijacking!


#21

A post was split to a new topic: Removed from a thread due to no need to discuss which user is suspended


#23

Is this something that happens after dark in the northern hemisphere? Is it exciting?

Hi Blaise!

The Check List thread was nearing 45 comments and several were removed spam and a lot more were just comments like “Great” or “Thanks!” We understand people want to express that and it’s find, but as a standard we try not to let a thread get too long with posts that are not really serious additions to the forum. Some new sellers (and some old ones) like to reply to nearly every thread or think that they must comment to be noticed, so they write the blurbs all over the place.

Over a lot of time, long threads can slow down the loading of the thread or forum (especial on mobile or slow net) so while we leave them open if they are on-topic and meaningful, we have a standard practice of closing threads like that. Some of the others who post tip threads do occasional ask the mods to re-open the thread temporarily so they can update it or add to it, and we are fine with that.

Sorry about the PM issue, I didn’t think of that. I actually have to close notifications from a few regulars when I wish there was another option. Some of the best and most helpful regulars post tip threads with some of my posts linked inside or references to my @username. In particular, your semi-canned one goes up a lot, and I was getting a notification for every single one so I kept running out of time to find things that I needed to respond to. If you need to contact me privately, feel free to inbox me and just ask me to write back in a forum PM for a forum issue. I can unlock the notification thing and write back and we can discuss whatever.

I wish I had a better way to avoid this problem, but I don’t know of one. If anyone has found one, let me know! Thanks, Blaise, I hope that helps! I don’t know if the closure of the other thread you mentioned is for the same reason. If it doesn’t appear so, inbox me to discuss if you wish.

Dear Maddie:

Some of the best and most helpful regulars post tip threads with some of my posts linked inside or references to my @username. In particular, your semi-canned one goes up a lot, and I was getting a notification for every single one so I kept running out of time to find things that I needed to respond to.

Are there edits I can make to the “semi-canned response” to avoid unintended consequences like that?

I might be causing problems for other people without even realizing it.

Thank you,
Blaise

Good hijack! Very subtle.


#27

I don’t know! If I figure one out, I will be sure to update. I like the lists of threads sent out and I do that same technique myself, though I try to make minor edits so it isn’t too repetitive. I don’t know if it would hide the notify if the link is hidden in code like this link to Fiverr or if would still happen. I haven’t had time to test it.

@writer99025 The post about banning/suspending was moved to allow for a conversation on it without hijacking this hijacking thread. I think it’s possible others might want to comment and I plan to comment, so it’s best in it’s own thread. It’s here if you want to participate: Conversation/Rant about Suspensions

I think no matter what happens, there will be times someone will take a short or long break from the forum. Since they cannot participate at that time, I would rather not see public discussions about identity, though there is not a black and white rule against that. That is why one post was removed asking you to elaborate. I will leave that up to each moderator to decide if they notice it. Anyway, as mentioned, further discussion on this is welcome in this thread: Conversation/Rant about Suspensions


#29

Is this like ‘if you get edited, get edited’?

Blaise, I do get a notification, when you have a link to my BR thread in your replies :wink: it´s not a problem though,


#30

Yes, I would say so. It’s just one of those things. I’ve been edited! Once I was locked out of the main Fiverr site for a day and that was more scary. Forum stuff is really not such a big thing, it’s just a reminder to keep things civil and respectful. Or, in the case of getting edited, it might mean not to say words like #$& and make the mods exhausted with editing em***i’s your comments. :wink:


#31

Or in other words, it’s okay to get shh done, just don’t say “shh” while you’re doing that shh…


#32

I watched the first 15 minutes of City, before switching over to watch the only club in Manchester with a history. :wink:

Thread Hijacking : Thread hijacking is the aRt of trying to steer a web forum discussion thread off topic by discussing a subject entirely unrelated to the subject at hand.

:smirk_cat:


#37

Appreciate that you and @capitalquality acknowledged my subtle yet deeply humorous comment.


#38

To be fair, I’m fine with anyone winning except Maureen. Conte or Klopp to win it.


#39

There’s always niche blogs about things which interest various groups.

A thread being hijacked by defining thread hijacking on a thread about thread hijacking. Hijack-ception.

:joy:


#40

This was pretty much guaranteed to happen!


#41

Are you trying to threadjack this???

Threadjack: verb: seize (a thread or series of posts in an online forum) in progress and guide it to go to a different destination or use it for one’s own purposes. Synonyms: thread hijack.
