Moderators - Leave a link to moved threads!

NuMystic | Nov 10, 2012 02:12 AM

Recently a post came up with a member having to post asking what had happened to an entire thread of recommendations in the last TJ's Yea/Nay thread:

http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8763...

Presumably the posts were moved because they were a discussion of pet food sold at TJ's, but I don't understand why moderators here don't use the same etiquette which is standard at virtually every other internet forum I've frequented over the last decade… and simply put a link to the new location of the moved posts in the thread they were moved from?

On top of that, they clearly need to be more diligent as at least one of the moved comments had nothing to do with pet food, and was a recommendation for a dessert found at TJ's and therefore entirely relevant to the original thread, and has no place in the newly created pet food thread:
http://chowhound.chow.com/topics/8763...

Besides that though, the thread is in the Chain Stores section. How is a mention of pet food not relevant? Costco, BJ's and other chain store discussions frequently include the mention of all manner of items that are not food… razors, commodities, paper towels, and toilet paper, etc. Being that the pet food IS carried by Trader Joe's, and the thread is devoted to TJ's recommendations and reviews, how is it a violation requiring moderation?
