I'd love to see what topic this was, and perhaps even to where it was moved, so I don't have to even think about clicking a link to a topic in which I have no interest. Perhaps similar "you've been moved" posts in the future could read something like:
"RedFrogTidalWave Hatfield,
your post about using lobster claws for sheep-shearing was moved to the 'Undersea Farming' forum. Thanks for your contribution!"

Just a thought ........

Mahalo!


My reply was:

That is a good thought that I've copied to the tinkering with this site forum. Mary LaDue's topic was whole house water filtration, and while I'm with you that I never like to follow links unless I know what they are, the message was a system generated generic one. Perhaps the amazing coding folks from coderanch.com who've been helping develop permies.com can help with that.


Any chance that could be added to the queue (however long) of wish-list features?

Thanks Jocelyn!

I always thought those short "you've been moved" messaged seemed to be quite cold and lacking in personal touch. That explains it!
I'll bet those codeRanch peeps can make that (autoresponder?) message say just about anything. What would be cool is if they could offer a couple 3 or four the Forum Moderator can select from.
