    Alliance Political discussions should not be a part of MMO-Champion

    I think it's disgusting to see some of the posts made in the "Politics" section. Why is there an area for discussion of that sort? There's tons of forum rules being broken there, yet many seem to go without warning.

    This site should focus on MMOs and things of that nature; branching into imaginary sciences makes the whole of mmo-champion.com come off a lot less credible and professional.

    Forum filters, how do they work?

    To keep the unironic marxists contained in one board, simple as.

    There is a very very easy fix for you OP and that is to not go there.

    One of the most trafficked spots on the forum, and it shouldn't exist?
    Um...wut?
    Is the op solely paying for the whole of this website?

    This entire sub-category of the forums has nothing to do with MMOs. Which Politics post made you cry?

    The real question is, why do certain overtly political threads stay in GenOT, and only get dumped in Politics when a certain political ideology appears to be losing the conversation? Politics is a category of discussion, not a garbage dump for topics conservatives don't like to talk about anymore.

    You can just filter them out, seems like a very simple step to take.

    If deplorable people are deplatformed from one place, they'll find another, usually one that's even more of an information bubble.

    Say what?

    Well, I guess since these fantasy worlds in MMOs are imaginary, it's forgivable to have a section about an imaginary science too. Still, if we can have a section about politics, then a section about religion should be welcome too.

    I'm suggesting they rid of it. It makes the entire website look bizarre as Hell.

    Use a filter (or just don't go there) instead of trying to force the entire world to form how you want it, maybe get some thicker skin and grow up?


    EDIT: Also looking at your post history you seem to enjoy posting there yourself lmao. Did somebody there hurt your feelings lil guy?

    I turn it off when I get bored with it. It's fun to check in at times due to the same people saying the same thing over and over again.

    Anyone who actually supports TikTok is turning a blind eye to the fact that they encourage challenges to abuse animals, including the users' own pets. It's a disgusting piece of software that needs to go bye-bye.

    India did it the right way.

    Good thing politics is imaginary, and our President is a businessman!

BRILLIANT.

    India was smart enough to get rid of it. We're one-upping with three steps better.
    Please, tell us more.

    It's especially annoying when people bring it up in entirely unrelated threads... right

    Id much rather there be a section for ppl with their uncontrollable urge to spout their shit there than it be like it was where a thread gets derailed because some burner account compared x wow character to y politician or say dumb shit like if you play horde/alliance then youre (insert trendy insult here).

    You can simply just not go there.

    Since you have an account, you can disable the politics subforum from showing up on the front page. The only way to find it then would be to go looking for it.

    General Off-Topic was made because there was a demand when the site was newer for it. A few years back a politics subforum was made as Gen-OT had grown quite a lot in popularity and much of the forum was consumed with politics surrounding Trump. If it was just 'removed' the site would lose a lot of traffic and we'd deal with loads of off-topic stuff flooding other parts of the forum.

    There's a sub-forum already called "Politics" that you can filter out... though that doesn't stop people posting still in Gen OT, should be infracted tbh. So many OT threads get reduced to left vs right crap by the same obnoxious people over and over again like clockwork...

    You should boycott the website till all political discussion is removed from mmo-c.

    I don't like to discuss politics in any kind of internet forum because the chance to get a healthy discussion is close to non-existent.

    Which is why I don't go down to that sub-forum. Easy solution. Seeing you are active there yourself, you complaining about it makes zero sense.

    You didn't ask what? You asked for a forum to be shut down that you yourself regularly frequent lol.

    Why are you in favor of "safe spaces"?
