As far as I know, when we delete a post or a topic, the deletion is soft-removal first, and after the defined time has elapsed, the deletion is complete.
Given that the removal process takes place in several stages, the following questions are posed to me, and since I did not find a comprehensive topic in my search, I wrote my questions here:
Will site statistics decrease after deleting the posts?
For example, likes counts or the number of posts.
Is the number of deleted posts and topics owned by a user recorded somewhere? Or do these numbers change after deletion and after a while?
We want to define a badge for the users who make the most requests to delete their topics. for example, every time, 10 topics/month are removed from the user, a badge is given to him.
Will all messages in the topic be deleted after the topic removal? How do other users see this in their profile activity? (during soft-removal and after that)
If a badge is assigned to a user because of activity in a topic, what happens to the badge if the topic is deleted? What happens to the given badges to other users who replied to the topic?
What effects does deleting the topic and post have on the user’s trust level? (especially for tl3)
Does deleting low-value topics with a large number of posts help overall performance improvements?
When the administrator enters a user’s profile, the number of deleted posts of that user is listed above the profile. Will this number increase if the posts are deleted due to the deletion of another user’s topic?
If anyone knows the exact answer to these questions, please write here for me and others who will be looking for their questions later. Also, if anyone has a question about the effects of deleting a topic or post, please ask here.
For more clarity, please answer all the questions in different stages. Soft delete, revision and meta deletion, complete deletion from the database
