    I'm a bit fast asking this (the team hasn't spoken about it yet) but if i see some pages nowadays some have more links and closed topics, as normal topics. Think we need to think about that.
    Please no spamming this just real opinions. B)

    I think move it and delete the old topic. Maybe there should be a message that it's moved from A to B ?(in the new location that is...)

    How about

    Leave the link for an hour.

    Then remove the link.

    This could be automated.

    I say remove the link, whats the point in leaving it up?
    You just get the same topic in two places.

    I think move and delete is good, that way the moved arrow placeholders won't interfere with actual threads in a given forum

    I like the links to stay, because if it's moved between your first and second visit there's a possibility you can't find it anymore.

    But then again, if it was off-topic it should be easy to figure out to where it was moved.

    Move and delete... i was just thinking about suggestin it.

    i find nothing more annoying than going to a page, and seeing a whole column of moved items. if you're gonna leave a link, then you may as well just leave the post there. this way people might start to try to post in the right place.

    also, if someone really wants to find a topic they found before, they can either

    1. search

    2. do the track this topic thing.

    I mean, in the moved thread a post that&#39;s it&#39;s been moved from section A to section B..
