When you close a thread, unless it's painfully obvious why the thread was closed (and note: it has to be painfully obvious to the thread starter, who may be new) add a little comment at the end. This may be common, but it's not always done. Also, a PM would be nice. I've had threads close on me and I wasn't sure why. Also there was a thread where I was being (I thought obviously) sarcastic, and the thread was closed with me looking like an sexist idiot. So I had to post ANOTHER thread clearing it up. I also had a thread completely disappear from the lounge, and I wasn't breaking any rules. So whenever a thread is closed/delete/whatever. The starter should be PMed and they can either know what they did wrong, or argue their case.
