The Moderator Thread

Forums - Website Topics - The Moderator Thread

I find it pretty hard to take someone seriously when they're trying to draw a correlation between the ability to make statements about one company that would be outright lies, with the same statements about another where they're certifiably legitimate in many cases. Even if you had some potentially legitimate gripes about consistency of moderation, you're arguing in bad faith.

I think these two responses highlight part of the issue you’re facing. One of them is a typical sarcastic post from someone known to make those kinds of things (I’ll be fair to you one the side of being unaware, however) and the other makes a point that you missed. There was also COKTOE who noted the big three versus 3rd party companies (and he’s spot on). A post about MS/Nintendo/Sony is held to a different standard (given they’re manufacturers and not simply a dev/pub).

Also, yes, your history plays a major role, because it stamps where you went wrong and follows you around the site. What someone says about EA doesn’t change what you did specifically. There’s also more to your post than an attack on Nintendo.

Like I said earlier, I get that it can be frustrating, but you have to accept your part in it.

So I need to not only keep track of companies that I can flame but the guys round here that are known to be sarcastic? Can I be sarcastic about Nintendo fans? I don't think so.

No. You being sarcastic about Nintendo fans would be taken in a bad light, again, given your history. That cannot be omitted when having this discussion.

Plus, the one that says that my point is invalid is just being arrogant and passive-agressive even though I'm not making a point regarding you mods being biased pro Nintendo, but accusing you of that. Which you can note or disregard but not say that I'm trying to prove or make any point.

The way you're trying to correlate moderation with bias is another problem. You've essentially asked us to look in the other direction because you perceive others to get away with that.

My take.

I don't want you to look in the other direction even though I asked for clarification regarding the flaming posts against EA.

What I want is to say is that I accuse VGChartz moderation team of being biased pro Nintendo. Which is an accusation that I'd do today, one year ago or one year in the future. It's a general accusation, not a justification.



My Total Sales prediction for PS4 by the end of 2021: 110m+

When PS4 will hit 100m consoles sold: Before Christmas 2019

There were three ravens sat on a tree / They were as blacke as they might be / The one of them said to his mate, Where shall we our breakfast take?


Wait, I thought we're biased towards Sony? Or is it Ouya? I forget... 



Also to clarify a couple of things about the situation for anyone unaware; I didn't say you should stop posting in Nintendo threads, I said, and I quote; "Maybe consider avoiding Nintendo discussions in the future, as you clearly have no intention of contributing anything useful to them." and as for the second thing, you've not attempted to reach me through PM, so unless you're referring to an earlier moderation I have no clue what you're talking about there.

Which is interesting because I think most of us are primarily PS4 players.

Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

The site is biased towards Nintendo in the past the present and without a doubt in your eyes the site will be biased towards nintendo a year from now? Do you ever get the feeling that since you've already made up your mind the future actions of this place as being pro Nintendo then there's not a whole pile they would be able to do to change your mind, you are the one with the bias against the company/their fans and people who point that out to you are being "pro Nintendo" I would say right now that shit posting about Nintendo the company who are sat on top of the sales charts each week is going to draw some flak from people because sales indicate that the majority of gamers are very happily enjoying the Switch right now, based solely on weekly sales by attacking Nintendo as a brand or their fans you automatically put yourself on the side of the argument which has less support, straight up numbers on the front page tell you this in black and white, there's no bias in that.

Also in regards the post you linked where someone was ragging on EA because EA as a company is doing what it can to get all the cash they can from their gambling mechanics before laws prevent them from doing that, calling EA scummy for their current lies towards politicians and those asking them for information is attacking.... EA, as a company, the target of the flaming is EA a company who doesn't come to this site, there are fans of EA games on here but they're not the attack of this sort of post.

Your post of "Nintendo fans X and Nintendo fans say Y" who is the target of that? is it Nintendo the company? No it's not, it's the fanbase, it's the users of this site, you are making posts which implicate what each one of the 200k purchasers of the Switch each week think, that they all have a single mind and goal when it comes to what they play and how they all just like a certain game type.

You really have to consider when you are posting who is the target of the criticism in your post, if you suggest that a company has bad practices and can give examples then that's a fair thing to say, if you say that all of a fanbase of a company think a certain way or act a certain way then you cannot prove that as a single person of the millions of Switch owners who doesn't fall in line with the narrative you're driving means your statement is false and both a generalization/attack on that group.

Rather than asking the question of "is it okay for me to be a dick to this company instead?" why not just avoid making antagonistic posts towards any group? Or at least don't start with statements about how all the fans of a company you don't like all do 1 thing?
