I'm seeing 3 deleted threads in Skeptic vs Proponent? 

My alerts to posts I'd written now lead to a page that says they don't exist?

Max, FWIW, I don't see any deleted threads, and still see the threads Brian started (albeit with the OP deleted). I guess that that's 'cos I'm an admin. Will try to work out how to grant non-admins the same rights.

Dude. You only get when you give. OK, that's not strictly true - some people are amazing and give without getting, but you get my point, right? You are worthy, man. Don't lose faith. Keep on sharing in good faith and others will respond in good faith. Let's expand the circle of giving. Jesus would want it. :-)

Moderators, can you do something to prevent this in future... perhaps remove the ability for members to delete their own posts...?

Otherwise members have the ability to remove other members posts along with their own opening posts... which is terribly disruptive.

If there is a way of restoring the deleted posts, that would be great too.

Phew... one of those posts took me 4 hours writing last night!

I think members should be free to delete their posts, but not when it comes to OPs, since that removes the entire thread from visibility. In those cases, they should simply edit their posts to be empty, or to contain a message like "[Post deleted]". Am willing to override deletions of OPs on this basis.

Good Lord, man, you are really putting some effort into this forum. Kudos, Max. I'll make sure it's not lost.

Brian, perhaps you could follow the suggestion I raised in my last post: rather than deleting OPs (original posts - thread-starters), which deletes every other post in the thread, simply edit your OP to be empty or to contain some message indicating that you've deleted it. If you couldn't be fussed doing this, then please let me know that it's OK for me to restore those posts and do it.

Please see my previous post.

I'm not proposing that your input be retained. I'm simply asking that rather than deleting your OPs, you edit them to be blank or otherwise indicate deleted content - otherwise entire threads are deleted with no way of resurrecting them.
