No, that was no flamebait. I did not post it in the original thread, because I wanted it to be an opinionated post, stating my opinion. I dont give a crap if anyone read it or not. I was seeing read when I read that. I did not post that for responces. Now after the 2nd page of posts, I started just feeding the fire because of the pure amusement on how mad the Wii group was starting to get... But the start of that was not meant to get the Wii guys screaming. Also, if you read through the thread, you would see half the people replying hadnt read more than the headline on my original post and thought it was a flamewar, as they were taking what I said out of context. That was when I stopped defending my point. I did not use the main thread because I knew it would be taken as flame material, and I would get trolled by the Wiiatics till the cows came home. I created the new thread more just to say. 'Holy crap wtf nintendo, what respect I had, is now much smaller.' If you cant state opinion on this site, then the forums should be close. I stated my anti-nintendo buisness practices opinion, and it is flame-bait. If that consists of a thread needing to be locked, then any pro nintendo, pro sony, pro microsoft, anti nintendo, anti sony, anti microsoft, any good or bad press notes on any of this, or any comments on anything should be locked, and the poster banned.

Look, if people want to take every anti nintendo thing I say, and turn it into a troll post, And I get blamed... wtf.


It was flame bait and you know it.

And if you really can't see that it was flame bait, then alright...but then why keep feeding it? Arguing out of pure amusement because of how "mad the Wii group was getting" is just stupid and unneccessary.

Yeah, there's a lot of Nintendo fans here...but I don't see too many posting to simply piss off PS3 fans...the Wii fans tend to just post good stuff about Nintendo. As a PS3 fan, nobody would have a problem if you just found some pro-Sony info and posted it, like Cell stuff, without the washimul flair to it. But posting anti-anything will of course cause flame wars, and you're doing it on purpose. It's absolutely unneccessary and most of us are finally getting tired of it.

You may have the most posts on these forums, but that means nothing if you keep doing this.  People are calling for a crackdown, and if there's any serious flame baiting from you, you're no more immune than someone with 5 posts.

Bet with disolitude: Left4Dead will have a higher Metacritic rating than Project Origin, 3 months after the second game's release.  (hasn't been 3 months but it looks like I won :-p )

 Cant a guy have a little fun?

But no, seriously I did not post it to be flame-bait. However because all the nintendo guys started trolling that thread and trashed it, I was just poking fun at the ones that basically turned my opinion into a flame-war. In refrence to your "As a PS3 fan, nobody would have a problem if you just found some pro-Sony info and posted it, like Cell stuff, without the washimul flair to it." bit, I'll find some, post it in a very formal news style post, and let the flame-war take off from there. When that happens, you owe me an apology. Also, It was anti-nintendo. DS and Wii. I know of around 5 anti-sony threads going on, and it's all A-OK. Check the Wii side of the fence too. If anti-nintendo is NOT ok, Anti-Sony is NOT ok. Rember. This is supposed to be an un-biased site. And if it's not, or if your not. Put it in your signature. "Sony fanboys are going down. Go get'em Wiiboys!" (I am not saying you are, but it seems that all the anti-sony stuff is ok, and the anti-nintendo stuff is sin in itself)

I will stop posting untill I prove you wrong on that BenKenobi88.

I fly this flag in victory!

feel free to ban him, it's a serious headache reading his posts littered all over the forums.  Most of the people on here, even the other PS3 guys at least have readable posts.  I would much rather read posts from Hus, and that's saying something.

No, Ban people who start unconstructive threads on a daily basis, with no other motivation than to start a flamewar, and ban them when they brag about liking fire.

 

Ban people who constantly bash people due to what SYSTEM they own, or like.

Noone is an Idiot for liking the PS3

Noone is a kiddy for owning a Wii

 

 

First ban = 7 days

Second ban = 1 month

Third ban = 3 months

Fourth ban = Bye Bye

Circumventing Ban with new username = Bye Bye

 


Whew thax man I was thinking Am I kiddy for owning a Wii but then I was like Damn how will I know because I am an Idiot for liking my PS3. Thank you I was stuck in a conundrum.



I'm glad to know the mods are here and listening.  Just to be clear, I wasn't blaming anyone personally for letting this get out of hand, just trying to show that there is a need for more action.

As much flamebait as Kwaad does post, I don't think "How nintendo" was flamebait.  I disagree with his assessment, but I honestly think he just has a strong opinion of Nintendo's approach to gaming.  See "Fanboy party!" and "Wii a fad?" for better examples of flamebait.  :)



Around the Network

Ya know. I don't see why so many of you are crying all the time about Kwaad and Hus. This whole damn site is just a big fanboy site!!!! Its all about who's winning in a toy sales competition where all of the numbers are basically best guesses based on other people's best guesses.

The mods are doing just fine. ioi is probably the only person on this site making any kind of $$ and the others are doing it voluntarily in their spare time. The same spare time most of you come here to throw rocks at others who disagree with you and call it a 'discussion'. C'mon you can't say that you all come here to have a scholarly discussion about historical sales percentages and future projected profits with pie charts and .... No. Nearly everyone is here to see how their favorite console/game is doing and to get into some little chat/arguements about predictions or who can piss the farthest.

The way I see it, to have a site about console 'wars' you must accept the fact that there will be flames abound and to grow up and either go with the flow in a somewhat intelligent non-kiddie manner or jump to a new thread about percentages and growth patterns.

Granted there are times when people can just get annoying and really in the way of any type of discussion. When that happens, trolling as a definate definition, they should follow some sort of written code of conduct. However, in nearly all that I have seen that happens far and in between here and the people that generally do this should or probably have been warned. However, as a whole I have always felt the Mods to step in a take of stuff when neccesary and think that they are doing fine.

Now, back to my throwing of the rocks.

 Hey dude I gotta call you out on a few points you made in this post.  Firstly there is a difference between discussing a media article that is Anti-Sony and making points about it, which some of the 5 anti-sony threads are making up at the moment, however they are based on current fact and you can't deny that Sony's PR department have made a lot of slip ups at the moment, as well as the fact that the PS3 is selling very poorly (no matter how it's spun it is).   Posts about this are going to arise but I don't believe a lot of the Nintendo boys.

I do agree that sometimes the arguments become pretty un fair because Kwaad yourself you take on about 10 people at once sometimes, but then when someone like me posts with a good posts arguing with proper facts you often ignore the good points of my post and it shits me because I for one try and keep things civil and give my true thoughts on a piece.

Simply going into a thread and saying that Nintendo are making crap games because they are making so many I don't think has a lot of base.  I understand where you're coming from because you think that most of them will be WarioWare style games, that are simple easy to pick up and play games (HECK Big Brain Academy I think will sell like hotcakes yet it only uses ONE BUTTON + pointer) and you don't like this direction, but I believe Nintendo's vision is to continue providing something for any and all types of gamers while also trying to rope in new people who don't play games or having before.  These are the type of people like my Mum who has trouble turning on a computer because of all the buttons.  It's why the Wii controller is shaped like a TV Remote control, because most people can use a TV Remote.

Anyway, dude I think you know what you've done to contribute to the downward spiral of things and I think you know what you have to do to be better (you've been pretty good to debate / discuss with today for me).

 



Hi all.

I too have had a busy weekend away from the Internet so am a little late replying to this, so thank you for bringing this up.

I have still yet to get round to posting the forum rules, I will be doing this tonight along with adding some more features for mods - by this evening when you click "report post" a message will be sent to a queue that the next moderator (s) online will see and one will deal with it. So from now on, please report any posts you feel are inappropriate and alert us.

As far as numbers of moderators, we may need more. I thought 6 would be enough (and still feel it is) but if we need more then we will obviously appoint more. I think this is more to do with personal feeling and things getting a little out of hand - since appointing mods I feel they have done an excellent job at keeping things running smoothly.

We do tend to have a lot of Wii fans on here and we do tend to get a few people who like to wind them up with certain types of post. THIS IS NOT ALLOWED ON THESE FORUMS. Anyone who is posting with the sole intention of causing trouble WILL BE BANNED. This has always been the line and will continue to be so please stick to it and please be vigilant mods. There will be more developments and more info later on bans and length of bans etc...

Any other criticisms / feedback then please keep it coming in. We want these forums to be a healthy mix of high-level analysis and discussion of latest sales / profits / company performance and day-to-day chatter about comparing merits of different consoles, latest game news, interesting discussions and so on - in an unoffensive and civilised manner. Joke threads, flaming posts, bad language - posts should be edited / threads be locked and a ban.

Hope this makes things clear on the issue. Stof is the head moderator so any immediate issues please contact him.

One last point, as someone pointed out, nobody is getting paid to be a mod, they are doing it in their own time to help out with the site so I don't expect people to be online all the time or to be able to deal with every issue immediately. If we take on more mods I think we will have too many and then you have the problem of disagreements between mods and so on - at the moment I am happy with the choice and they make a good team so please support them rather than criticise them.

Thanks

ioi



superchunk,

Are you saying a troll and a fanboi are the same? I don't agree with that. Trolling is about a dishonest and antisocial style of posting here were the aim is solely to grab the attention and upset other people.

ioi,

Thank you, you've said some things that were necessary. I'm looking forward to seeing the rules posted!
