It’s not algorithms moving topics around. It’s usually in response to a report made by a KP member who thinks it’s misplaced. Once reported, either a moderator or (rarely) Admin decides if the topic warrants moving or not.There is a lot of that with this new forum. Seems like posters should be the ones who decide where they want their posts to be. But algorithms do not care about community.
Yes, on original version of KP, only Admin could move topics. Now, moderators also can.All rather strange to say the least.
I've often seen on General Chit Chat book recommendations, but none have then appeared later on Book Club.
If I see a book recommendation on general chit chat I usually add a note about book club etc. As indeed to other Book Club members.
My understanding is that only Admin can move topics from one place to another on KP. ??? I once posted in the wrong place and I received a note from Admin to say it had been moved.
I cannot control those who report. I don’t always agree with them though, so don’t always move topics as wished.Well, because people use algorithms, too, it is selective. Apparently, seeing books in the post means that it gets moved to a topic on books.
Understandable if you want to limit reader participation but not necessary except to please those who feel the need to accommodate their OCD need to categorize.
