The only fault of this community is that it's too awesome and people have to quit it like an addiction.. speaking from experience. VGC gets you hooked and sometimes you have to stop it for the sake of having a life outside of the web.

Well, the forum rules are pretty damn hard to follow. You think you're within the rules and bam, you're fucked without notice. It's hard to keep members when the rules are so strict. Ideally, the perfect forum would be free and members would be allowed to have at it openly, within reason (no death threats, posting personal info, porn etc.) but it seems most people can't handle other people calling them names anymore lol.

Seriously?....its easy to go on without getting a warning or a ban.

If a person dont make snarky jabs against people, go post random hate responses on articles or create a thread to round up users for a baitfest - you wont get banned plain and simple.

Along with not using NSFW avatars, posting inappropiate images on posts or giving links out to illegal material , etc helps too.

Also control of the emotions especially for their preferred platform of choice is something that is lacking for those who get banned every month or so.

 

I see no issues with the rules - only self-control or lack of with users.

I know of people who got banned for having an argument via PM even though there was no rule stating that it wasn't allowed. The moderation team, or moderator was just like, nope... and created precedent. That's the kinds of things I'm talking about. Having rules is cool but they need to be followed to the letter of the law. If you give modertors the ability to bend them, or judge based on their own discretion, you're not only making it REALLY tough on members to know what they can and can not say/do, but you're making it really tough to ensure the moderation is legit and not being abused. 

I can handle myself on this forum, though it's hard at times. I love the place and it's the only forum I visit. But there's always room for improvement and I think creating a set of bullet point rules, and forcing the moderators to follow them to the "T" would be a better plan than what's allowed now. But that's just my opinion.



Always wondered what happened to all those prominent xbox fans that were here during the 360 era. Ps4 and xb1 came out and they disappeared, what a coincidence.

The rules are scrict? Try going anywhere else. Its like NK compared to this place. But the worst is Neogaf, its a hellhole controlled by few. Its super closed, and it sucks. Avoid it if possible.





Made a bet with LipeJJ and HylianYoshi that the XB1 will reach 30 million before Wii U reaches 15 million. Loser has to get avatar picked by winner for 6 months (or if I lose, either 6 months avatar control for both Lipe and Hylian, or my patrick avatar comes back forever).

the guy who ran the official xbox thread got permabanned for using VGC as a platform to funnel people to his site. something like that. im not an expert on the issue, im sure somebody around here knows more about the situation. 

but yes, there are hardly any xbox people here at all.
