People can close their own threads.  Typically when a moderator closes the thread, they’ll state why.

Yep, the OP can close it themselves. When it seems “random” it’s usually because the OP is getting backlash or not receiving the responses they want to hear so they close the thread without saying anything. If it’s closed by a moderator, they will tell you why

lilsweetie:  When it says ‘Closed’ in the title, it could be either the OP or a moderator. If it’s a mod, the last post will be from that mod and will usually say ‘closed for review’ or ‘this thread has run its course’ or ‘we’ve gotten several flags from this thread’. Closed threads are still there, but if you posted in one, it’ll drop from your posting history under your profile.

MrsYokiman:  oh I was wondering about that! I assumed they were getting deleted coz I couldn’t see them anymore. Is there any way easy to find them again? Sometimes it all seems perfectly fine and then they disappear, and I’m curious to see how they deteriorated…

pink.lemonade:  I know, right? The only way I know of is just to go through the posting history of my browser. It sucks because I want to find out what happened in a thread and suddenly *poof*, it disappears from my profile history.

lilsweetie:  There really isn’t a difference between a moderator or user closing them except that a moderator will say why they closed it. If it’s deleted by a user, the post will completely disappear.

lilsweetie:  Regarding that thread, I saw that the Bee later reposted her thread, stating that she had accidentally closed it herself.
