    Hi there,
    it just happened that a moderator (unjustifiably..) closed a topic of mine and there is no way to contact/discuss about it. There should be some kind of way to “defend” a created topic after it was closed. Maybe by discussing the reason why it’s closed (like in wikipedia where changes can be discussed), giving the opportunity to write private messages or by setting a flag (for other moderators).

    If you would like to discuss, come to the #forums channel on Slack. However, I see only one recently closed topic for you. Your post was in the wrong area. You received a reply telling where the post should have been posted. There’s nothing for you to defend — the process is not adversarial.

    Hi sterndata (I know you from the irc channel),

    that’s good to know. Yeah the last topic is the one I have a problem with.

    You are right, it might be wrong in the section “developing with wordpress” BUT it’s actually no plugin problem so it’s also wrong in the plugin section. He/she moved it to the “fixing wordpress” forum and closed it at the same time. I don’t see the point behind that action. The core question of my topic wasn’t about yoast seo but about add_filter vs apply_filter behaviour.

    As it relates specifically to Yoast’s SEO plugin, their sub-forum is the best place to ask that, as Jan noted.

    He often moves things from Developing to Fixing, which I don’t agree with, but he is at least consistent.
    He could have moved it to the plugin forum, I think. But if he can’t, it makes sense to close it so that you are forced to open a new one in the right place instead of the old one languishing with no attention.

    And this is done. Closing the topic.
