I would like to make a suggestion regarding topic deletion, due to an incident that happened to me recently.
Yesterday I logged on to find that I had received an owl informing me that a topic I participated in was deleted due to a banned user. The topic had been between myself and two others, was well written and thought out, and even got a mention in an article for how good it was. However, some time after we were done with the topic, someone else posted in there randomly. Nothing particular came of it, but then they got banned; and because they got banned, the entire topic had to be deleted.
The reason I am explaining this is because the deletion of the topic felt more like punishment to those of us who had worked hard on it and abided by all the WoP rules. Myself and the other two were gutted that the topic was removed because the other user happened to be present at the end, as we had worked hard on writing our replies and the topic formed a crucial part of all our backstories.
Now, to be clear, I completely understand why the presence of the banned user had to be removed. I am not criticising the prefect team for doing their job; I know they had to do it. However, I would like to raise a query: Is there any way in which the system could be modified so that individual posts can be deleted, rather than whole topics?
