Asalaamu 'alaikum,

Posting rules are understood, and it's for students who have taken the class and for others to benefit. When a person asks for general naseehah, should it be left alone and left for the Shayk to answer? Previous posts have been deleted, perhaps people were almost giving fatawas without proper knowledge? What can be done so that it doesn't get deleted again? This awareness will be beneficial. JazakAllah khair.

Seminar folders are strictly used to address questions from the seminar which are to be responded by the Seminar Instructor and/or directed by the Teaching Assistant. AlMaghrib Student forum does not entertain general fatwa/naseeha questions. If an Instructor chose to answer a general fatwa/naseeha question, that was a bonus :). There are plenty of websites available for that purpose.
Be advised that any questions unrelated to the seminar are subject to moderation or complete deletion.

Ramadan Mubarak!

Can the moderators apply the rules to all threads so the person whose posts get deleted will not feel discriminated against?

Rules that don't apply to everyone can't be called rules. They become a means of controlling people who are 'different' (leads to injustice--> dissatisfaction, chaos, & bitterness).

I'm sure people are aware of this.

Overall the forums are good, this change will make them better.

Jazakallah.

Salaam

Ramadan Mubarak to you too. May Allah subhanahu wa ta'ala make us recognize through the act of fasting what we are capable of achieving in our spiritual, ethical, physical and social life.
InshaAllah be patient as the forums administration is undergoing a metamorphosis of organization and procedures. You are more then welcome to report a thread that violates forums policies and requires moderation or write to forums@almaghrib.org (forums@almaghrib.org)

I think one aspect of forum moderation is that this is a community effort, if you will. Not everyone will have the ability to read every single thread because, well, people do have lives outside the forums. Even moderators :)

As the sister mentioned, if you find a thread violates forum rules, no problem, simply report it to forums@almaghrib.org, and insha'Allah, the moderators can go through and delete whatever thread or post is in violation.
