Re: I've been robbed of $100's of vCash by this site...
When more threads about the same topic are made, the other ones get deleted. Both threads were made at the same time (8:02 my time zone), so I gave preference to the thread that was most posted in, otherwise more people would lose their posts. When a thread is deleted you lose Vcash. It is not a fine however, just an unfortunate side-effect.
Same thing happens when they're merged though, so it's not just a deleting thing
$400 is a bit excessive for not actually doing anything wrong.
True, as one of the threads will get lost in a merge, mostly the oldest one. I would agree losing $400 might be hard on some, especially as nothing was done wrong. I do not set these, so it really was an unfortunate side-effect.
