Just wondering, if a post of ours or thread got deleted would the stats from it like flags and stars be removed again?

Like if we had come up with the bestistiest thread ever and gone from zero to hero with 1000 flags and a million stars, but a broken forum rule was spotted and the thread nuked, would that person go back to being a ranting forum criminal zero?



Not hugely serious at all of course, take your time.

I'm not entirely sure if you lose stars and flags from 404'd threads so I guess that's a good question. You can however, lose flags from a poster unflagging a thread. Beyond that I don't know.

Well i ask for a reason. Because while its nice to get some credit for taking part, i dont watch every point so if it did happen id probably not notice - however yesterday i had 301, i thought "i bet somone just did that so it wasnt a nice round 300" however today its back to 300 (which i dont mind, nice and tidy).

Okay now it is 301 again but thats for this, it was definitely 300 and i even checked my profile to make sure it wasnt a page bug, and i wondered i dont mind if a bad thingy gets the cred for it taken makes sense - so i thought id ask you friendly folks

uhmm...be concerned about the ideas and opinions you express, rather than worrying about accumulating flags and stars. if you want a lot of stars and flags, criticize Obama, democrats, liberals, or any of their ideas, and big government is always a sure thing, too.....good luck

OH my god we are idiots, people can simply unlike the thread at a later date if they made a mistake or start to disagree.

Okay this thread has gone terribly wrong, it might have to be moved some place, maybe where the arc was moved to in that warehouse in indiana jones.

Back when I used to care about those things and tracked my progress daily, I noticed that no you do not lose stars for a post removed by moderators, even if the whole thread is 404'd. I'd wager that flags are the same way.

Yeah i can rapidly to the conclusion that it must just be someone changing their mind and retracting the flag, aka unflagging.

If the flags touch the ground, they have to be burned. That's all I can come up with.

Hey, you still have more than me.

Don't forget say good things about god and jesus and how it's the best ever only super duper way to go or else burn in hell. There'll be stars and flags for Africa. Falling out of your pockets. You'll need a bucket.
