    Hello, I got a warning for starting a thread in the wrong section. I don't know what thread it was, or where it was moved to. Heres some screenshots:
    [​IMG]

    But when I click on "Thread Started In Wrong Category", I see this:
    [​IMG]

    How am I supposed to know where or what happened? Not sure if this is usual for DP or a bug cause Im fairly new here.

    Maybe the thread was reported twice. One time for being in the wrong category, and you got a warning for that, then the thread may have been reported a second time for being spam/duplicate/junk - thread deleted.... and you got no warning for that. .... because maybe you can only get one warning per post (like it was on VB). Just guessing.

    You posted a BST thread in the "Other" section when it was clearly meant to be in Link Sales. Because there are rules around sales threads in Link Sales your thread was deleted allowing you to create a new thread that abides by the rules. Moving your thread may have bypassed those rules.

    Oh it was that thread. I wasn't allowed to start a thread in "link sales" because the original owner started a thread in there. The domain transferred ownership to me, and I tried to start a thread in that section, but the system told me I wasn't allowed to because it was a duplicate thread. So, I was forced to start it in the "other" section. Don't really see why mine had to be closed, because I wasn't allowed to start it in the link sales section..

    You weren't forced to... it was still a choice, you could have posted in this suggestion to find out the correct procedure to get around your problem.

    True, I wasn't technically forced. But, I also didn't know I was going to get a warning for it. Do you have any suggestions to the correct workaround?

    Ok ok, sorry. I will try to remember to not make the mistake again. I'm sure you have your reasons behind this rule, and thus Digital Point is so huge. Thanks for the help.

    Otherwise you end up with hundreds of replies to threads with people just saying "PM sent". Which again, serves absolutely no purpose to anyone since the system notifies them they got a PM the second you send it.

    I don't use the BST section, but I have two ideas for possible improvement.
    -There should be a way to find out how many users wrote a PM to the original thread poster. This may motivate people to provide lower prices if a lot of people are interested in an inquiry. It will also prevent others from writing "PM sent" because it will no longer be necessary to notify others that the person is interested.
    -After clicking the link "Start a conversation", the message title should have something like "Re: Original thread title"; all email clients do this automatically, why shouldn't it be here too?
