    Forgive me if this is in the wrong place, I figured "misc" was my best option...

    I was posting in this thread:

    http://wordpress.org/support/topic/plugin-nextgen-gallery-slideshow-of-recent-or-random-photos?replies=20

    which I found when trying to resolve an existing problem I need a solution for. I was having constructive interaction with other forum members only to come back today and find the topic closed. I see that an admin moderated a small block of code I inserted, which does not exceed the forum rules for requiring a pastebin, but it was done anyway. This is, of course, while I read topics each day with hundreds of lines of code that are not moderated or closed...

    Anyways, my question is to understand why the topic was closed? I checked the forum rules and FAQ's on reasons for closing a thread and it fits none of those criteria that I am aware of.

    If this was done by an admin then I would simply petition you under the premise that I have been scouring the internet for a solution to my problem for months now. In that time I have found countless requests for the same solution I am seeking, so it's not like I'm asking you to rewrite WP to run on a TI-85 graphing calculator or something ridiculously unwarranted. I had been adding content to the discussion as I found partial solutions that may have helped some users, I wouldn't classify what I was doing as harmful or in any other way a violation of rules. Am I wrong?

    I'm not sure why it was closed. I've reopened it. It may have been closed due to age of the original thread, but without a comment from the mod it's impossible to know for sure.

    If there is some overriding reason, though, it might yet be re-closed.
