    Please change WoW Discussion Forum Title

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...1#post21957483

    Please change the title of the WoW forum to "Positive Feedback for WoW" since anything negative is not allowed. This will help quell the confusion of people thinking there is open discussion allowed. Thanks.

    Stop crying, Negative threads are actually encouraged if you do them in an adult manner, and don't just throw your toys around.

Find an excuse to let one of these off the chain, and I personally guarantee, the bad guys won't even wanna come out of their caves. Ladies and gentlemen, for your consideration... the Jericho.

    o.O Did someone punch you or something?

    Anyway, you're more than welcome to criticize something you feel isn't right, as long as you do it in a constructive way.

    Yeah, we need another "WoW is dying because of my opinion that's true" every 5 minutes.

    You mean, "opinions that don't stray too far from our beliefs" are allowed. Which is fine, it's their forum. But not expressly stating that opinions that aren't pro-WoW (or very close) are not allowed is confusing for forum users who would like open discussion on things they believe to be negative about the game and it's genre.

    There's like trillion other threads already, there's no point in creating another thread about same thing, that has been discussed every day of every year on these forums.

    It is more like the people that make those kind of threads tend to do so by saying "WoW is dying because of LFR!", and don't argue their case in a structured manner with sources cited (and linked); instead they just post "WoW is dying because of LFR! - /discuss" and then leave the thread to run its 50 page course with circular arguments between 2-3 people, none of which are prepared to concede any points and shout down any legitimate and founded opinions by anybody else on the grounds that the opinion is wrong.

    I'm sure an argument structured like this would be fine:

    Introduction to the argumentation
    reason one - explanation of reason 1 - cite multiple sources
    reason two - explanation of reason 2 - cite multiple sources
    reason three - explanation of reason 3 - cite multiple sources
    [repeat until you are done]
    Conclusion, summarizing the essay and using the previous paragraphs as supporting arguments for your main argument.

    There are a lot of threads that have a negative slant towards World of Warcraft, such as:

    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...s-more-obvious
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...e-his-position
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...till-Immersive
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ere-a-Bad-Idea
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ld-think-about
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ty-games-maker
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...s-of-Patch-5-3
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...ealm-Ruined-It
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...W-free-to-play
    http://www.mmo-champion.com/threads/...or-most-people

    Not all of those threads are 100% negative, but they all describe some dissatisfaction with World of Warcraft without labeling the game garbage or Facebook-mmorpg and avoid bashing. There are constructive ways to discuss something that you feel should change and then there is just plain straight-up bashing.

    You're welcome to discuss the thread being closed with Sunshine, who handles moderation complaints and issues.
