                    a moderator just informed me that she deleted the first post of a thread and only then she realized that this caused the whole thread to disappear.. Truly, the vb must consider putting some emphasis there, in the warning...

                    anyway, is there any way i, the administrator, can find and recover the deleted thread, since this was done by a moderator, or is it gone forever?

                    thnx

                      Soft deleted: it is still there.
                      Physically removed: it's gone forever.

                        It wouldn't make a difference. People who don't take the time to read a page will never pay attention to any amount of emphasis put into warnings. For example, on the Contact Us page of one of my forums I have it stated in extra large, bold, red text that messages regarding a certain topic will be ignored, and should not be sent. But almost every day someone uses that page to send a message about that certain topic anyway. I could make the warning in 500px text and they'd still do it. So if you have a moderator who doesn't pay attention to details, the problem isn't with vBulletin.

                          Well since the first post is the start of the thread, then yes removing the first post will remove the thread. If you have SQL backups you can revive the thread. How any new post since then will also be removed. Looks like a lost topic and reminder to train your mods a little better. The reason it is not highlighted is you have a custom style and the css was probably removed.
                          My statements are based on the forums not the CMS as I do not and will not use it.
                          If I wanted faulty software I would code it my self. When I pay I expect to get what is advertised. I do not feel I got what I paid for.
                          In an honest opinion I feel I paid for vB 5.0 beta 7

                            I think that after pressing enter you should get a warning window "Are you sure you want to proceed? This action will delete the whole thread!".. and i am absolutely sure this would spare us lots of kind of accidents..
