    Shitty moderation once again

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ve-time/page10

    Instead of infracting people violating rules we will just close a topic that goes against our democratic beliefs.

    Keep up the shitty work guys.

    If the gave out infractions to everyone that posted something bad jaylock would be banned after each post. You gotta realize its hard to monitor this many people.

    If you have a problem with moderation PM Sunshine
    I play many games. WoW, Rift, D3, PoE, SC2 I will not criticize your game choice if you don't mine.

    you should know better that we don't open new threads for every closed one.....
    That itself is a infraction worth..
    Plus you are not in a Democracy here, you are on MMO Champion. With that you abide by the rules set by the owner, just like you abide by the rules of your neighbor, when you visit him in his house.. Your constitutional rights are left at the very doorstep.

    And if you post iffy sources, and the majority dismisses it as not credible, then Democracy works as intended.

    All the forums I've seen close threads if the discussion strays to far from the topic. Whats your point?

    It's been said a million times: Take moderation issues to Sunshine or another global mod, not to the forums.

    Honestly, with the people who habitually do this... and don't take the proper steps... Might as well let them keep doing the same actions and accept the consequences. It's really the only way for people to learn.

    The thread was closed for valid reasons. There was no "discussion" going on. It was a bunch of back and forth sniping.

    This site isn't a democracy, it's a dictatorship.

    Shouldn't the proper course of action be to infract/ban those who have been repeatedly warned for going off-topic instead of simply closing the thread? That happened a LOT in the Throne of Thunder thread and that never got closed until the race was done.

    Taking into acount we the users don't pay anything to use it, Boubouille and Curse could damn well fill the forum with violet penises (penae?) and close every 4th new topic. It wouldn't be a successful business model, but they could.

    If you want to use a forum you should abide by its rules..

    The Throne of Thunder thread served a purpose beyond simple discussion: notification of the standings in the race.

    The thread chadwix opened served no purpose other than a vehicle for discussion: zero discussion was taking place, just a meaningless back and forth of "We're better" "No we are!"

    The thread was closed.

    I dunno, it seemed like there was potential discussion there. It's a major issue. Not sure how it was his fault people handle politics like babies, unless he was directly stoking it.

    if the mod thinks a discussion can continue in the thread, or if there is a discussion and just a few people going off topic, it usually stays open, but if the whole thread has gone off topic and not constructive, just people insulting each other etc, it usually gets closed.

    i havnt read the thread the op mentioned though, so don't know the situation there.

    Nobody ever claimed it was his "fault." The simple fact is that there wasn't any discussion going on. For 10 pages.

    So would he be allowed to make the thread again? Or not?

    Why aren't infractions handed out to those starting the fights after a thread is closed?

    I see a shitload of those threads get closed without a single infraction. It's a never ending cycle.

    I think his issue is the shitty enforcement done. Just close a thread and let everyone off to go do it again somewhere else with a thinly veiled "don't go off topic plssss" at the end.

    If you want to use a forum you should abide by its rules..
    This isn't a public service, it's a site that profits thanks to the traffic which determines the ad package revenue. The users drive it. If it wasn't profitable it would be shut down.

    And if the rules were enforced the way they should be fewer people would complain. The first person to report wins too often. When 20 somethings are given power, it's often misused. That's why 20 somethings are rarely given power. You don't know wtf to do with it.
