Interesting thread, I always wonder are there more people who come to vgchartz because the moderation on here is rather strict (like myself) or people who do not come here because of that exact point, not just because they are banned but people who find it hard to phrase a reply to someone without calling them a dribbling spastic or throwing in a few racial slurs into the reply to "add colour to it" so they just leave and look for other places to put their musings, like the youtube comments section or a toilet wall.

One thing I did enjoy back in the day when I still visited the site frequently, was that the people here was so mature. Typically your videogames forum is full of physically and/or mentally 15 year olds, while VGC had people in their 30's and 40's. Having some older people can offer you a more mature discussions and a whole different kind of dynamics between users and mods.

From my point of view, this site have always been middle ground when it come to moderating.

It had some ups and downs, but still miles better than neogaf moderation xD



 

The thread is open again? Nice.

I'd like to point out the fact that there is a gross negligence by the Mod Team in moderating outside of the confines of this website.

Last Sunday I didn't take the trash out and the garbage truck came and went and my trash right still right here. I've hit Saturday and it's baffling that I haven't even received a warning for it. You guys need to step up your game.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

I disagree on bringing back the monthly ban thread. Do we really need to publicly shame users just for a few users Enjoyment? We should not keep fuelling the toxic atmosphere.

I think it'll be great. More transparency is better. Plus my few months of being a dickhead are over so now I can laugh at other people help other people become model charterz. 



Sounds like we have our first poll idea for the thread. Let's do a consultation:

Should we bring back the monthly ban report?
Yes - It creates more transparency for the mod team, and people just like to see it.
No - It could lead to shaming other users and some negativity.

Voted Yes and i regret it already xD

Could be good to see if mods are pushing it too far in the bans, we can see if they target particular users or if they are bias against a particular group.

But could lead to some mods just wanting to beat others and ban left and right just to be the one that "wins" in the number of bans.

Could be good to see users that are here just to provoke and start shit, for example there is 2 users here that only post to attack onionberry and insult people , why they are not permabanned already? They just make the site look bad and should be permabanned already. This is just one example.



 

Whoa, hold on a second. I only called onionberry "Nintendo's viral marketing babe" once.



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

What if Nintendo paid you to get a Nintendo logo on your butt? A) would you do it and B) would you show it?

Mario on one cheek, Yoshi on the other.
