    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. :confused: 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.

    Ah, you'd like to see fewer war threads in the lounge too, eh? ;)

    I say ban 'em.
