    Is someone censoring BYC? I know some threads get locked, but by what mechanism do threads just disappear?

    From the BYC rules:


    Moderation
    BYC staff spend a TON of time and energy to keep the forum running smoothly. How BYC staff moderate is never a topic for open discussion on the forum. If you have any questions or feedback on moderation it should be addressed to the Administrator or the specific moderator via email or private message.
    * Do not post threads questioning moderation.
    * If a topic is closed or removed do not, under any circumstances, re-post the same topic or material. If you have any questions as to why a thread was closed or removed please contact a BYC staff member.

    Some threads get moved to the moderators forums where they are cleaned and sometimes replaced.. Others are locked because they have important info.. The ones that get removed usually have no useful info.

    Yup, some are moved to staff area to review.

    If there is good info we will sometimes move them back after cleaning them up.

    If they are full of stuff against our rules we'll keep them in the staff section.
