Postings Moved

Who's moving post replies? I made a reply to another members post and that reply has been moved to my build thread that has no bearing on the subject. I also have seen more of my questions moved to my build thread. Not everyone is interested in my build thread which is why I seek answers in the general postings. When I click on tri650's thread that has been moved it takes me to my build thread. Where did his thread get moved to? I feel like I've been sent to the corner and my questions are not worthy of the masses.

If you mean my post about fork springs, yes. tri650 posted that he had a 70 model that had both external springs and internal fork springs. His Thread has been deleted, and my answered moved to my build thread where it has no relation to.

Yes - where did the thread go? You are correct - everything is being directed to you rebuild. Thought maybe you hijacked it and just want the attention. Just kidding. Looks like a few other threads have been moved/directed to you rebuild thread.

Not likely to die of natural causes

Threads that I started in the general forum were moved to my build thread page. If I wanted to ask the questions there I would have done so. I believe general questions should be where everyone can benefit from the input. I not interested in every single build on the forum, so I don't go to all of them, not enough time in the day.
When your thread was first moved, in the general section it said it was moved. If you clicked on it it took you to my thread and only showed my answer and not your question. And then a little while later your thread just disappeared.

Mea Culpa.

I consolidated all your threads to your build thread, as I thought they all pertained to your build. I did leave a 2 day relocation option, so they should still be where they were originally, but will go away after that.

I believe it's better to have ALL of the threads that pertain to your build, in your build thread. I have left the off posts for several days, many answers, THEN moved them.

Missing Thread

So now that you have closed the Posts Moved thread, what did you do with tri650's original post that I replied to. You moved it to the build section, but when you click on it it takes you to my build thread and only shows my reply and not his question. Now no one else knows what it was about. It was legitimate question he was asking and should be put back in the general forum.
I don't see any 2 day relocation option. Posts I made today got moved today. If you want to wait 2 days before moving my posts, I can live with that. But the General thread gets viewed by more members than my build thread and that's why I post my questions there, so they get more exposure for answers. When I post something directly pertaining to the build like pictures of progress or something I post them directly to the build thread and bother the masses with the mundane stuff.
About half the questions asked in the general forum pertain to someone's build, I don't see you moving any of those. Only mine

I like to read your questions here.Not too different from anyone elses questions.This seems to be the most read area and i rarely look at the build section.I think i will have a look as i might have missed a lot.I liked the Pharisee build of the T120r as that is the same as my model.

The questions Marc has asked belong here where he can expect to get answers.
His build thread is for informing anyone interested enough to go there what he has done to his project.
Moving threads around like a cleaning lady is not helpful.
