    I think there should be a way to know, if one of your posts or replies have been removed/hidden.
    Currently the only way I can get that information, if I, by pure accident, stumble upon the removed content, and see it.

    Example of my idea:

    It is already possible for a moderator to notify you of post removals, however they do not usually tend to do that. (But I think that it only applies to full post deletions, so you kinda have a point to make in this thread...)

    I don't see why that would make anything better. First off, they already have the option to notify the poster, and secondly, wouldn't this just encourage more aggression toward the mods than there already is? I would imagine no one likes getting expletive-filled hate PMs for deleting shitposts.

    If you guys aren't shitposting, that wouldn't be very useful anyway. If you notice some of your posts deleted, there's a reason behind it. It would mean that the deleted post wasn't helpful nor contributing to the discussion.

    This will create a lot of drama and might even end in personal hatred against some mods.
    Mods already can decide if they want to notify you by alert upon post removal.
    Most of them don't.

    Best solution is what Vins said.
    Stop circlejerking and shitposting in regular threads.

    When my offtopic post got deleted, I got a notification. Still loving the mods here.
