i know there was a spammer post in there, but that's no need to delete the whole thing :evil:

If this is true, it is truly a sad day for up and coming starport players, nox's guide was great and if the moderators couldn't be arsed to figure out how to delete the spam posts within the thread they shouldn't be arsed with moderator duties.

I've never been one to say anything bad about the mods on this forum, they do a great service out of their own free time and its a duty I would probably never do myself, but if someone carelessly deleted that thread that is pretty terrible.

Probably no way to recover it which is quite sad, nox worked very hard on that and many others contributed.

I would be amazed if it has been deleted by a mod!

right, well luckily I made a back-up of the guide, a bit out dated but don't think I changed much after this. Of course all the comments people made are all gone, but at least the guide is still alive. Glad I saved it :shock:

I did get an error message so it might be some things aren't in order. Looks like copying from words did work though.

@moleman: how else could it have been deleted?

I didn't delete it, can't imagine Luna or kwiji would have. Only other possiblilty is that it was deleted by an admin.

My guess is that it was an Admin, or it was auto pruned. I rarely delete an entire thread unless only a few people have posted and its flame bait, or utter nonsense. I stick mostly to the Tavern since it's the busiest section.

ha. well now that the guide is back up I think it'd be a good idea to lock it to prevent any more tinkering.

I think I made it a sicky so it won't disappear. Toonces is the only one that can hand out Mod ability, and unfortunately it's an all or nothing venture. You can't pick and choose what parts you want them to access.
