    What is appropriate for a new thread

    Can someone please tell me what is appropriate to put in a thread? It seems like everytime I write a new thread the mods erase it. I wrote a thread today asking if someone had the photo shoot for top model from lee jeans, i go to check the status and it is gone. Why is that, is there something wrong in the way i asked my question. I did put some backround information in there. Can someone just help me understand so that when i write things they wont get erased?

    1) Check to make sure the thread doesn't already exist. In this particular case, there is a Lee Jeans thread, with plenty of discussion that most likely already answers your question.

    2) "Who is your favorite...", "rank the...", "what's the best..." threads will almost always be deleted.

    3) Make sure the thread is on topic, well-named, grammatically correct and spelled right, and not meant for a small subset of our users.

    How do I find this thread

    Thank you for clarifying for me.

    Then how would I go about finding this thread? Type Lee Jeans in the search?

    guillermo...

    It appears that they've titled the portfolio threads by the Episode number, not necessarily with product name. So you can either scroll through the pages manually, or do a search on Episode 4 (which in this case happens to be on page 4 right now.)
    Never let the things you want make you forget about the things you have.

    While we're on this subject I thought I'd ask what happened to the thread about Christmas celebrations in schools. I thought it was a very interesting topic, and seemed to be quite tame. Unless someone posted something inappropriate that I never saw... anyone know what happened to it?

    It was inappropriate for General Discussion.

    Because in that forum there have already been any number of "who is your all time favorite" threads started already. Unfortunately for that forum they always degenerate into fights over who is best , and why everyone is Just StUpId and branded a hater if they don't agree with your choice.

    In short, the forum and some of the posters in there have a real problem keeping to our site rules about respecting other peoples opinions, lingo. linking other sites etc.

    I've been wondering myself, as I started the thread. I am genuinely interested in how Christmas is celebrated around the world ? If it was inappropriate for General discussion where would be an appropriate place for it on FORT.

    Merry Christmas
