Post by: hardatwork on December 04, 2007, 03:39:21 PM
My thread was moved recently from one board to another. Did I do something wrong?

Moderators will retitle, relocate, split, lock, or assign "Workshop", "Feature" or other designations to notable threads as part of an overall effort to keep manage the educational platform and keep discussions active, centered and moving forward.

Retitling a thread is typically done to clarify the content of the thread for current and future members. Retitling increases member participation between 50% and 500%. Relocating a thread is done to consolidate similar topics in an area where they will get the most qualified responses. Splitting a thread is generally to protect a host's topic from being redirected to another topic or refocused on another member (hijacking), to highlight or draw attention to a significant member issue or topic that might otherwise be lost in the run of a thread, or to welcome a newbie. Threads are locked at 30 posts to limit the size to one that is fully readable/digestible.

We have guidelines here that explain the moderation in greater detail.

I had the same question. I think the current policy is good!

Thanks for your help!

80% of our members are relationship partners in a crisis stage and they can spillover onto the other boards and unintentionally hijack discussions that other, smaller groups, want to have. We do our best to protect those smaller groups or specialized discussions and provide a diversity of options for members.

Rather than have a defined healing method, we have concentrated on providing more tools and more specialized boards - each focusing on a different aspect of the healing process - a Chinese menu if you will, for each of us to select the item(s) that best suits our individual needs and in the order we want them “served”

We have relationship boards where we all talk about our relationship struggles, the behaviors of the BPD in our life, and the application of the healing tools (e.g. boundaries) to our personal situation and vent and otherwise express our hurt/frustration/loss.  

We have learning boards - Articles, Books, Questions, Workshops - our 'graduate school'.   These are places dedicated to just to learn principles.  We discourage relationship discussions there

I hope this provides some insight.
