    I get no explanation of why, or who it is.
    Threads are on-topic and posted in the relevant section.
    Threads did not violate any rules of the forum

    Would definitely like an explanation why these were deleted, yet threads like this:
    I can't believe we're finally here…

    get to stick around.

    The threads you are creating have no content in the first post. They are entirely / primarily a link to an irrelevant Youtube thread, and are therefore off topic / spam:

    Actually, the second time I posted it, it contained a poll. There are lots of threads in that forum that contained polls.

    I'd have a feeling you'd just delete it again without checking, and I was right.

    So again, why would a poll about the Transformers movies and whether or not people would like to see Michael Bay stay or go be considered spam, but a post like this
    I can't believe we're finally here…
    get to stay?

    Your post was a link to a Youtube video from Dumb and Dumber. That is irrelevant to the Transformers movie. If you want to create a thread with or without a poll please create that thread using words and sentences convey the ideas you'd like to discuss. Thanks.

    You mean like this one, where there's a poll and the only word in the post is "thoughts?"
    Transformers future

    So if I just say "thoughts?" in the topic with my poll, that's okay then?

    Here's another poll with nothing at all but a period as the first post.
    Should Lorenzo di Bonaventura leave
    You say to "create that thread using words and sentences convey the ideas you'd like to discuss", but it doesn't appear as though that is applied to all of the threads here.

    I created a poll with a question regarding Michael Bay, and whether you'd truly like to see him move on now, or see someone else take over as director. Not only that, but I posted an image with an ironic tweet from Bay regarding Transformers.

    So again I have to ask, why was my poll post deleted?

    Don't include off-topic spam and you should be fine. If you think your topic speaks for itself with only a poll, that's fine.

    My second post with the poll was not off-topic spam. You aren't answering my question.

    Third time: why was my poll post deleted?
