Recommended Posts

If you are looking for the thread about a massive photo wrap, a moderator has moved it to the

Threads are often moved by moderators to a more appropriate forum section. Why the focus on this particular thread?

Any user can find moved threads via their forum profile page.

Also, William, pointing to a forum when mentioning something has moved isn't going to help very much. You can copy the URL of the topic from browser's location bar and use that, or click the ... icon on the first post, click Share, and choose the URL from there.

As Alfred mentioned, Moderators will commonly move topics into the proper forum if a user puts them in the wrong spot, and this is essential for good management of the forum. They can leave a pointer in the old forum, but usually don't. 

If a user has posted in the topic it's easy for them to find it (Activity, Content I've posted in). Otherwise, if they know a search term they can just search.

Edit to add the below:

Also, in this case specifically (but most cases in general):

  • If the user is Following their topic, they will be notified of any responses.
  • If the user is not Following their topic, responders will often tag them with the @ notation, so they will be notified.

Thus, the movement is nothing we should need to worry about.

Hi @William Overington,

As much as I appreciate that you are trying to help other users, creating excess threads in the incorrect location isn't something we'd encourage here on the forums and I must ask you not to do this.

The thread you are referring to did not belong in 'Resources' (and neither does this thread), hence it was moved to Questions.
As other users have mentioned above, moving threads from incorrect locations happens very often on the forums - and if users were to create posts such as yours for each one moved, the forums would quickly become a confusing mess.

I'll be moving this thread to 'Questions', as although it is not technically a question, it certainly doesn't belong in resources. I'll also be locking it from further replies, as for all of the reasons above we simply don't require this type of post to be made, but once again I do appreciate you are only trying to help.
