I personally would like to respond by saying I saw this coming. I banned Kwaad weeks(or has it been months?) ago and there was a huge outcry by the users that it was unfair and that he should be unbanned, which he was.

It was at that point that I realized I didn't have any power over users because you didn't want me to.

If you guys want us to moderate, there is a sort of unspoken agreement that you will accept our decisions. You can't pick and choose which ones you like and which ones you don't.

That's pretty much why I haven't been moderating much recently.


Whoops. Didn't know he was banned before. I'm still sort of new here myself. I just opened up a thread lamenting the banning of Kwaad. Irony, thy name is John Lucas.

I mean in honesty those who come here to stir up mess shouldn't be around & posters should contact moderators for permission to contribute if banned. I just don't want the place to turn into a forum nazi regime where every slightly unreasonable gaffe becomes a bannable offense. I've been in boards like that and it kills the thirst for participation.

Well all I can tell you is that you won't have to worry about any of that out of me. So carry on.

(one more last chance for Kwaad and if he blows it, he blows it. just a request. he was fun to have around despite his need to make trouble on the boards. maybe it's just that elf avatar)

Words from the Official VGChartz Idiot

WE ARE THE NATION...OF DOMINATION!

 

Around the Network

We laid down some rules initially for the forum and in essence I want it to be a place for open discussion where anyone can come in and have a say. I don't want mods to be too heavy handed and I don't want conversation stifled too much - people are free to make their points heard.

What I do want though is an end to many of these threads. I haven't really looked at the forum in detail for a few days and was a bit annoyed at what I saw this morning. This is not fanboy wars or insult someone who disagrees with you. This is a place for mature, reasonable discussion about videogames, with a particular emphasis on the industry and sales charts / figures etc. REASONABLE, MATURE discussion of the merits of a particular system and the outlook and future success is more than welcome, insults, trolling and name-calling isn't. It's good we all have different views, the world would be a dull place otherwise, but let's keep the comparison and discussion of those views civil. This is how I want VG Chartz forum to stand out from the others.

The forums here are getting ridiculous, and need to be cleaned up.

The moderators here have shown time and time again, that they are not willing, or not able to handle the negativity here, allowing a team of 2 to 4 trolls to dominate the forum, and drive away any legitimacy that this site MIGHT ever gain.

If you want this site to work, grow a set, and start rolling the BanWagon.

 

Case in point, as of right now, as documented in View All Users, no moderators are logged in.


Youre crazy?

Thers no more negativize that spell troll the people, go to germany in 30' and say 'Jew'....


You rang?

(To tune of "Spiderman")

Super Jew, Super Jew
Does the things a Jew can do
Files your taxes fairly quick,
He can even cure the sick!
Mazel Tov! He's Super Jew


He's not old, but he is wise
Yes, he has been circumcized
His rabbi taught him every lesson
His parents run a delicatessen
Oy! He's Super Jew

Need an answer? He's got two
He's the amazing Super Jew
He can solve your every plight
Unless it's a Friday night
L'Chaim! He's Super Jew

BRIDGE!
He'll make you take your clothes off and go dancing in the rain--- wait, that's not Super Jew

What's his weapon? He's got none
He uses wit instead of a gun
So heed this warning anti-semites
Engage with him and see the light
Oh yeah, he's Super Jew


Oy vey! I'm Super Jew!


Right! I must assume whit this that the people who tell 'Troll' to others is itself a 'Supertrollman'?.

Well, it is hard for the website or any organization for that matter, to ask for feedback about some things and at the same time attempt to limit discussion about other aspects. 

 Also, you mods have been doing a great job with this website, and I fully support the feeling that y'all want to step it up.  Keep up the good work sintinel. 



Is Kwaad banned longer for making another account to try and get on? Anyways Kwaad dont feel that bad I was banned from Supercheats for life! I was a good mod there until I got banned

After a brief respite, again, the attacks have started, and again, the moderators (one in particular) is not stopping the attacks, and is in fact, fanning the flames.

There's a difference between rabid fanboyism and trolling, Quantum... I personally haven't seen too much trolling. Can you link to a thread or two, so that everyone's on the same page?

Hmm, no that thread is not even that bad(to me at least). I don't know, I think your over reacting.



No, when we have people callnig people who own a wii and a PS3 "not real gamers" thats provocative, trolling, and flaming.
