    If they're moved, probably to the correct forum. This site has a lot of forums in it. Could also be moved to the recyle bin to remove them, though they don't leave a moved link for those.

      Either get moved to the correct forum or merged with another similar thread (click on the thread and you will be directed to the current forum/merged thread). They can also get deleted - moved to the 'Bin' (private forum only moderators can see) - but you won't see 'moved' next to them if that happens.

      When you see a "Moved" marker, clicking on this should take you to the move destination. We often now use 'expiring' redirects to reduce the number showing in forums, which will disappear after a specified time (commonly one day). Is there a particular thread that you're having trouble in tracking down?

      Well, while we try not to include a redirect when we're binning a thread, it can sometimes slip through. The default option when moving a thread is to leave a permanent redirect and sometimes we forget to change it.
