And if that thread had a meaningful topic to be discussed, whats the problem?If the problem is that "there are too many threads going on and too many discussions happening", then thats a good problem to have honestly.And sometimes a user just wants to focus on one specific part of the conference and talk about that, without being buried under other topics that a general thread like the official E3 thread would be.

I mean, when Nintendo conference comes and goes, Im pretty sure that people will want to make threads to discuss only Smash, or FE, or a new IP that may happen to be announce there.But the mods wont close those threads, because they are positive and are about topics they approve or something of the sort.Only negative topics will be close, and thats just wrong.

I want CGI to confirm this. But from reading the thread. I thought that (for example) "Smash Super Brawl revealed" thread is fine. But "This is why I hate Smash Super Brawl" thread is not fine. 

Which is exactly what I find stupid.As long as they dont insult anyone in the process or baits a fanbase to a stupid console war, whats the problem?If he thinks he has anything worthwhile to add with the "This is why I hate Smash Super Brawl" thread, then go for it.Specially if it relates to Smash 5.

What?Why?I find this idea of locking "Reactionary" threads so foolish.

Dont get me wrong, I think the rules should still apply.If someone goes to create one purely to shit on something and dosent have anything constructive AT ALL then i agree it should be locked.But if someone goes to create a thread called "Bethesda conference this year was boring" and writes good arguments to back up on this claim, even if it harsh, why lock it?Why kill discussion?Its just a dumb decision all around.

Gotta be honest, everytime I saw this stupid temporary rule around the internet I always thought to myself "Man, why do this?Why kill the fun and thoughts of the other users on this subject?" and was always glad that VGC never done this, at least not to that extent.now I cant say the same.Shame.

It's only for a short while. It's not really a big deal, just to help stop clutter.

I dont agree with it, but fine.I can do nothing about this after all.



I think it’s a stupid idea, it just kills hype around the biggest game season of the year.

I am resisting the urge to start a reactionary thread to a reactionary thread on too many reactionary threads.

How is it killing hype? you can still talk about these things.

This is a very minor thing, but the word "reactionary" is used incorrectly in the title of this thread.

Reactionary is one of those words that doesn't mean what it sounds like its means. One would think that it refers to someone acting upon their reactions to something, but rather the actual definition is someone that opposes social/political change (it is a synonym to conventionalist, ultraconservative, etc.).

BTW, the only reason I know/I am so passionate about this is because 2 years ago I wrote a paper for a notoriously difficult Professor (great teacher, but brutal marker) and I used the word "reactionary" like it was used here and the Prof took off 10% just for that.

Although you are correct, it works in this case . The message has gotten across.

Mods are turning this down, make a "I wasn't allowed to create a "how do you feel about the ban on E3 reaction threads" thread, how do you feel about that?" instead.



End of 2016 hardware sales:

Wii U: 15 million. PS4: 54 million. One: 30 million. 3DS: 64.8 million. PSVita: 15.2 million.

So threads that are like "Rate BLANK Press Conference" are a no go?
