Post Comic Discussion Deleted - 2015/10/21 - Media Crazy
A moderator accidentally deleted the comic discussion thread for Media Crazy. If you would like to leave a comment on that comic, I've opened a new topic here. We're sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for posting. Your feedback is important.

Any way to prevent this from happening ever again?

I don't think that you can bring the topic back from a recycling bin in this instance.

Yeah. Unfortunately the only way to bring back the thread would be if we had a database backup. We don't backup the database every day though so unfortunately there's no way to restore the thread.

As to preventing it from happening again, unfortunately the only thing that could be done would be to remove moderator permissions to edit/delete posts which would defeat the purpose of having moderators anyway.

The "delete topic" button is right between the "lock topic" and "move topic" buttons. I reckon what happened is that as the topic was being moved to the old comic section the "delete" button was accidentally hit instead of the "move" button. Although we obviously can't guarantee that it won't happen again because it's an easy enough thing to do, you can be sure that all mods will be extra careful when moving topics from now on.

If only there was some way we could make it so you needed two mods to delete a topic. That would definitely make it harder for something like this to happen again.

it would also make it harder for us to act when a bot comes on and makes a thread to advertise something, or someone joins just to post inappropriate content in a new thread.
we need a single mod to be able to act fast in those situations, and it would be difficult if not impossible to only apply that to comic threads. if it were even possible at all.

This is the first time this has ever happened on these forums as far as I know, and now that we know how easy a mistake it is to make, we'll be extra careful in the future.

No problem.

We just need Tarot's lamp if we want to get back the previous thread.

And a PowerBank is not as big as Peanut's backup generator.
Is like this:

And what is your plan with those things to get the topic back?

Or you could ask those who design the site to move the flipping button? To somewhere where it's more... isolated?

I... know I recall this happening, but I don't think I ever deleted those posts: I think I just redacted sections and left a mod-note...

Yeah, I think it is actually: I don't remember it happening in front of me either...

Wouldn't that require a lot of work to change the coding to move it?

Which only means they should have isolated it in the first place.

Is it possible to add a "are you sure you want to delete this thread" message box? I know a lot of people ignore them, but if it only showed up for thread removal and not for just moving threads, it could serve as a good warning system.

This already happens. Without getting into too much detail, the pages that appear after selecting each action are different, with different options.

I assume we won't get to find out who the moderator is for fear of them being tarred and feathered? ;)
