its ok now but before it had red lines through both the expire and spam button???

When his thread was returned, someone "Expired" it almost immediately.
The mods un-expired it a few minutes ago.

Your 2nd point is valid though

You could legitimately spam a thread, and it could be returned to the forum, and it becomes impossible for you to spam it again.

not sure the amount of time but if u wish to find out why dont we set it up on a thread, ie members spam, mods unspam and see how long the lines through both spam and expired last for?

I always thought it was only the person who spammed it that couldnt spam it again, not everyone, and once a line through it, it remains that way, in other words you can only spam or expire the same thread once

yeah which is a tad annoying coz that thread cud become spammable and u cant, imagine if u spammed, it was put bk then sum1 started writing something extremely innapropriate, ud have to report and wait for a mod response instead of spamming and it wud b gone for good.

Fancy answering my above query? Doesn't it go back to normal soon after? Just takes a few mins because of the caching?

The issue hasn't been clarified, as far as I can see.

nah it takes quite a while to go back


Both these comments indicate it does go back to normal after a time period. In which case, there isn't a problem. Sorry if I was abrupt before acecatcher3. :gift:

i expired a thread this morning, it was then returned to the boards, i could no longer expire it again, i have now expired this http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/270646/whooo-hoooo/ if you could unexpire it and then we will know, as far as im aware once you have expired a thread and it is returned you can never expire it again, same with the spam button

acecatcher3 is talking about 2 separate issues.

1. Unable to spam/expire after a thread is returned(spammer/expirer only).
2. Everyone unable to spam/Expire for a short period after a thread is returned.

lol emma i wasnt bothered was only messing, ive underlined what saint said, thats my main issue really, once u spam expire wrongly, once its bk, we dont get another chance, seems abit silly as there could be lots of reasons why a thread should be spammed again.


I need to point out again that you can expire correctly, and be unable to do so again.

yes, as i found out today:thumbsup:

Everyone can only expire or spam once, including the mods. Up to admin whether this can ever change.
banned#21
I dont suppose its much of a biggie really, there is enough folk on here, so ok i cant spam something, but the next person can, you just post in the thread for it to be expired or spammed, or report it

Yes, I don't think it's a big problem, but maybe it's something that Admin can get changed quite simply, that he never knew about.

Find it disturbing that the mods have the same issue though.
banned#23
Apparently the mods have the same buttons as us, the spam buttonand the expire button, although they must be able to un expire and unspam

I meant that the mods only being able to Spam a thread once is somewhat confuzzling.

Does emma have to nudge JB to Spam on her behalf. They do all live together right?

well i wouldnt think they have a need to do it more than once to be honest, although they do spam them to get them off the boards to be cleaned up, so i suppose the nexxt person to do the clean up has to be someone else - lol

although maybe perhaps they share accounts, incase of this

has emma rung up admin yet or what, im suprised he wasnt in here as soon as he saw it was a thread made by me.


I really do hope your not going the same way as someone else with their apparent humour :roll:
