Roboblogger posted it. It's a program and not an actual person, so it sometimes posts items in the wrong categories. It's not that smart.

Yep, and even worse, if I can't get to the post before someone comments on it, I can't remove it.

That's odd. I'm an editor in the "Gay & Lesbian" section here at Topix, and I am able to use the "kill story" link even if a story has been given comments.

I can't do editor things in here though as this isn't my topic area.

Oh you can easily use the tools to "kill story" but it doesn't get removed.

It removes that story from your topic area. Wasn't that the point?

Actually it doesn't move it at all, it still shows on the side as well as in the master list of the forum. Once it's been commented on, it remains in the topic area. Don't believe me, go ahead and remove this one. it will stay right here.

I can't flag this with "kill this story" because it's not my content area, sorry.

It seems to work to remove off topic stories from the content area where I am an editor. Even if there are already comments added. There must be something else going on if it's not working for you in the content area where you're editor.

Actually I doubt it. It still shows up in other forums AND this one because someone from this forum has commented on it, I've seen this before.

So next time I should use the report function, I guess.

Well you can try but that usually only works when reporting trolls, I've never seen it actually get entire threads removed.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
