Topic bans?

Postby mjr » 30 Mar 2020, 4:29pm

Why have I been banned from the Covid-19 / how serious thread, please? Or is it a general ban on discussing the topic?

Edit: the error message is "You are not authorised to read this forum."

It was not locked. It was completely gone from my sight except for the links. I now realise I can see the locked topic.

Is this another case of half a topic having been moved into the mods sandbox? The errors shown when that's done are very confusing!

A couple of threads have been deleted altogether, it should have been better to lock them IMHO

Is it possible to ban certain members from posting on certain threads?

B****t is still locked I think, bet many of us approve, +123! :wink:
