Forums - Website Topics - WE WANT BALANCE!! Mods actions are either non existent or out of control...

I agree to a certain extent i know that there has to be some order, but to me the banning is getting out of control. lately people have been getting banned for just expressing their opinon and i dont think its fair.

You know, I had a joke thread that got locked down. I based it off the infamous Leo-J "greatest preditcion thread ever", the End of The Wii. I called it the End of the PS3 and copied his thread almost exactly (bad spelling of prediction included), just switched out Wii for PS3 and vice versa. I also switched game titles as well.

What I didn't understand was, Why would you lock down a thread that was obviously a sarcastic play on a fanboy rant, but leave the original open (it's still open now)?

http://www.vgchartz.com/forum/thread.php?start=50&id=24871 Joke Thread

Of course, after permaban you have to read leo-j's original post in a quoted reply since all his posts have been removed.

Both were started on 4/24, the original is still open, the joke 'answer' thread got locked down in less than 12 hours, with no note from a mod, no pm, and no explanation.

I'd love to understand why stuff like this happens.....

I think the Wii Bingo thread would be locked by today's mod standards.



BAM! There it is!
 
Wii Code 3456 7941 4060 2924
COD MW Reflex 541192229709

i have to agree with this, the mods seem like they are fans first and mods second, which really doesn't work out too well.

And you don't think he Grey should be banned for making a controversial title that he knew would end up in a flame war? I mean come on he directly called HD console owners desperate. It's like if I made a title "SMG review scores show Nintendo fans like it up the Butt" and then my actual thread was fine but obviously my title was meant as flame bait. I understand you can't change the title after you've made it, but that's why you should give it a little bit of thought before hand.

I believe I used the term "GTA IV demonstrates HD console userbase desperation", and not "GTA IV demonstrates that all hd console users are desperate"

I realized that some people would possibly take it the way you believed, but didn't realize quite so many people would actually be UNABLE to recognize that I was referring to desperation that existed within a group and didn't at all mean to include every single person of that group. It also reffered to the desperate situation that I felt both reviewers where in by being caught between causal and hardcore gaming focuses, and PS3 and 360 were in with their battle for dominance.

Sorry, that's like a thread that said "SIXAXIS IS CHEAP!!!" and apparently half the people looking at it thought "Hey, sixaxis for sale" and the other people though "oh, hey, sixaxis is of poor quality"



Seppukuties is like LBP Lite, on crack. Play it already!

Indeed, i think the only problem with moderation on this site is that they usually allow Sony fanboys to troll while they don't give the same kind of freedom to Wii/360 owners... i think the mods should come hard at everyone who gets into personal attacks, like most ps3 fans on this site do.
