What if you think your post has been deleted?

Before you post one more time, if your think your post has been deleted, then do a "Search", and add your screen (login`) name into "Search Authors:". Then you will see all your own posts. Your post is probably just moved/merged.

Example: Some start a new thread about a song they like, or not like, on the set list, there could be hundreds of such threads, and in a week they will be gone, nowhere to be found, but as I add i.e merge them into the "Set list discussion" thread, they will be easy to find at all times.

I've had that happen. Thought a post was deleted, and it was simply folded into a similar thread. No big deal. I've never felt censored on this board.

I just did the search to look for one I started a couple of years ago. I started a “Ronnie Wood talk - what’s on your mind right now?” thread as an answer to the Mick Taylor thread of similar title. I guess it really did get deleted. It was never meant to be confrontational or to start trouble. I just started it because I really like and respect Ronnie Wood. I love Mick Taylor’s guitar playing, but he resigned, so I felt like Ronnie deserved an equal space for posts. But it went away.

Threads may be merged or closed, and I may change the title, if it is misleading. Still, I do rarely delete anything here on IORR. Most people are nice and think before they post. A minimum of moderation should be expected, otherwise anarchy will take over.

Merged into the catch-all Set List Discussions thread.

Sometimes it's nice to let the thread stay on the main page under its original title for open discussion until it fizzles or for a few days. At that point merging can make sense. But if it is buried into a general topic after a day or so, most people will forget about it and stop responding.

Or they will think it has been deleted for some reason. Those of us who have been here a while know what is likely to have happened, but for many people the IORR topic has just vanished without trace. Thanks bv for starting this thread, which at least gives people a clue where and how to look.

Very fair post. Thank you for the way you run this forum. Much better than having a large staff of moderators who each have their own ideas about what is acceptable from a rule book that is pages and pages in length.

But a track talk belongs in the track talk-thread, imo. Or else that post will be very hard to find again later on.

I think there should be a thread dedicated to live versus studio spanning all music. It is a great topic. For example if I hear the studio version of Led Zeppelin's Misty Mountain Hop or Blackdog, these songs are so damn good that
I feel like they are playing live when I jack the volume up.

Could definitely work, Chris. But someone (with a lot of time on his/her hands) would have to set it up and continue the work..

Thanks BV.

I am sometimes a little provocative but always respectful and polite, it is what I really appreciate on this forum always interesting with a very good level of discussion.

I have been looking for a more modern forum solution, where you may have keywords, structure and system, but every time I find something new, there are some limitations, it is more expensive, or there is a new tour on, so until there is a break, or I find something better one day, this very basic forum, which is now twenty years old, will do the trick for still a while.

Remember, if you try to find something, google search should be pretty good if you add "site:iorr.org" to the search terms. Example:

rolling stones istanbul site:iorr.org

rolling stones memory motel boston site:iorr.org

rolling stones iorr ian stewart site:iorr.org

It is all there, just try a smart search, and you will find it. But search is all about titles, that is why I always make sure titles are relevand for future search, and a title like "Guess what?" does not make any sense for search.

Bjornulf, the use of an ancient olde platform (in IT terms) is part of the charm of it, in my view. I've met many other users of the board and I get the impression many others think the same. It's quirky and fun.

I sure hope so. In all those years I got used to it. And I reached a certain age now where I don't like changes smiling smiley
