Why was the GD rules topic removed?

Post by Random American »

In the where to post what topic in the Announcements forum, there is a link to the rules for the General Discussion forum. It appears to be out of date, as I'm not authorized to view them. What changed in GD over the years?

We've lessened the restrictions for what could be posted in GD to the user using common sense. Thanks for pointing out the oversight. That announcement needs major updating or replacing.

A snapshot from ~8 years ago; since the user primedomain still exists and the post count says 25944 but searching all his posts only matches 22401 posts I assume either soft deletion of the missing 3500 reside in a hidden forum.

Which is actually not that weird, as there are more internal fora as public ones :). The topic wasn't actually soft deleted, but just moved to a internal forum.
