A message to all reporters, mods and admins:

Please check Threads with great scrutiny before closing them because one of my Threads was closed because apparently it was a duplicate of my friends Thread, but it was the exact opposite!

I don't want to be banned for any reason, so I'm sorry if I've angered anyone. I'm not trying to troll, I just want my Threads to stop being closed please!

Thanks :)

Might help if you specify which thread you're referring to.

At a guess, it's the following scenario, where:

The LBP2 Beta will not expire (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?39767-The-Lbp2-BETA-will-NOT-Expire!) thread is the same thread as the other thread in BillyMays asked "when will the beta end? (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?39606-LBP2-BETA-End)". This in turn was the same as the already existing thread When will it [the beta] end? (http://www.lbpcentral.com/forums/showthread.php?39512-when-will-it-end).

In that thread, the best answer IMO comes from jwwphotos, stating:


Yes you can, but the LBP1 beta client checked for servers first. Once the server access was pulled the Beta was no more. The LBP2 beta can work offline, so.... you can play with it all they way up till you get the real thing!


Three threads, all of which are discussing at what point the LBP2 beta would end or expire (which are very closely related concepts). I get that the nature of them was slightly different - two had the starting point of asking the question, one had the starting point of giving the answer.... But in each case the topic of conversation was the same, ergo "duplicate threads".


Unless I've missed something?
