"Save your work" and "follow the rules" - A rant about my thread getting deleted

I posted my essay, with the title of the prompt ("Northwestern Statement... Critiques?"), as multiple others have. But it got deleted. Sorry that I didn't have a creative enough title for you...
but guess what??? I wrote that version on here and was unable to save it except for ON THIS WEBSITE.

so thank you for going on a power trip, deleting my post, and effectively sabotaging my essay.

i thought that this website was for helping people with essays, not deleting them because you don't like the title.

Hi Hailey,

I changed the title of this thread so that it might help others to avoid running into the same trouble you had.

You introduce two very important themes:
1. Don't just post your work to an online forum and expect that others will take care of it for you. Save it to your own computer, too!
2. Follow the rules at EF so that this online community can develop the way it is intended to develop.

I hope a lot of people read this thread so that it will help others to know that "Northwestern Statement... Critiques?"is not a descriptive enough thread title.

I'm really sorry about your lost progress. Nothing is worse than working hard on a piece of writing and then losing it...

Kind regards!

:-)

I agree Hailey.

I have posted my essay twice, titled "FSU admission essay" and it has been deleted twice. I do not see how there is something wrong with that title. I just want to know how to make it flow better, I dont want somone to rewrite it for me. So I understand your frusteration.

"FSU admission essay" is a meaningless and useless title for the reader. It also shows the writer has vague idea about his/her own work. Imagine you have 1,000 posters and each titles their thread about the same; how would you determine the CONTENT of the essay? That's why you need to carefully study www.essayforum.com/subject.html if you don't want your thread to be removed without notice.

You should have saved it onto your computer :(

And I understand the whole rule on subject titles because it helps the readers and the moderators to distinguish between essays. You should have put a part of your topic sentence or your essay's main points on the title. When you start a thread, it even gives you a warning.

That's understandable, and I understand where you're coming from on the whole frustration bit....

Though you should have definitely have saved it on your computer & you can't blame the website for that.

Hi Allyson, if you don't see a button that says, NEW THREAD it might be because you need to go help some other people by responding to their essays. Help a few people, and you will see the button in the upper right part of the screen.
