    I’m referring to this one: https://niketalk.com/threads/help-me-choose-my-first-aj1.672151/

    I can’t figure out what rule I broke. The thread was an honest attempt to glean some wisdom about AJ1s from the experts of NT. I got a few comments that I wanted to respond to, but then I noticed the thread’s closed. What am I missing? Did the topic belong in a different forum?

    I’m new around here, so if I’m breaking a rule by even asking this question, then I apologize. Not trying to rock the boat. Just trying to understand.

    Hello,

    There's a very large thread dedicated to the Air Jordan I: https://niketalk.com/threads/offici...t-model-thread.508567/page-5367#post-29990564

    The general rule of thumb is that it's better to post in an existing thread where available than create a redundant one. If every person here created a new thread each time they were evaluating a purchase, the forums would become cluttered to the point of dysfunction. I agree that an explanation would've been helpful. Our moderators generously volunteer their time to help us maintain a safe, friendly, and organized community, and may not always have time to offer a full and satisfying explanation for each action taken.

    I apologize for the confusion. Please note that you can still follow up with any of the users in the earlier thread by sending a private message. Just click/tap their username and then select "start a conversation."
