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

I don't think it's any type of fanboy. People troll for the system they like on EVERY gaming board, not just here.

gebx pegged it, it's just very inconsistant. You read one message with a heated debate, no mod comments at all (or they are involved in the debate). You go to another and mods are using "consider this a warning" for something that really isn't that bad. But the same mod will be posting in both threads.

I think some fanboyism is part of the nature of the beast on a gaming site, and I like all the mods I've talked to (or commented alongside on a thread with).

There just needs to be a level approach to modding, not just done on a whim.



BAM! There it is!

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.


can anybody else see something wring with this post?


With what carlos710 wrote? Easily

In yours? Spelling.

@ Acumen

XD, I read that thread, I wasn't even offended I just sensed lol the moment I saw the title, it was flame bait bro, every moron would read that and ready their bladder for a nice long contest.

The article itself was fine, but I'm sure anyone who read that title would cherry pick in their head the hell out of it, and trust me their was tuns of stuff to select from, then go into UBER teh c3L! rage mode. That's a lot of work to expect a Mod to take care of.

Also I'd like to add if their was such a mode, the direct world would be in high def monochrome and the person in rage would move very fast and have many versions of itself doing the same thing in parralel, this person could also tear a man apart with their fangs.

We have forum rules. Break a rule and a mod will deal with it. We have mod forums so decisions are generally discussed and a group decision made.

Moderating should be more consistent than ever on the site. If you have a specific issue, speak to DKII or myself about it.

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=0&id=24862 Leo J original

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.

I´ve noticed this also and it´s annoying as hell especialy when Sony fanboys scream that Ninty fanboys are getting away with the same thing when it´s actually themselves that get away with it far more then Ninty fanboys. I also noticed that when Nintendo fan´s get longer bans while Sony fans MOSTLY get a day or two.

except, this is the problem, all the current mods are involved in this console race in one way or another, so when person A calls the wii a toy for children, they may or may not get banned depending on the bias of the mod.

for the modding on this site to really work we need to have unbiased mods.

sometimes when people go way over the line they get away with it, sometimes when people barely push the boundaries they are publically warned or banned, because there is no real guideline to what is acceptable.

the modding here is the least consistent i've ever seen on an internet forum to be honest, and i think you don't read your own forums enough to notice ioi, but i understand you are busy etc. so i can see how this problem would pass you by.



ioi, DKII

Can we get a comment and reason before the lock if a thread gets locked down?

That would be helpful, as in my example above. The 2 threads had the same written content except for console names (one was a sarcastic play on the other), the original stays open, the second gets shut down.

Was the sarcasm not allowed? Was one considered flamebait? The original surely was. The joke one might be considered flamebait until you saw the first one. And after the joke came out, it was edited to read in the first post it was sarcasm. So why was one allowed and the other one not? and no reason posted?

I say warn all mods of the coming fanboy revolution. If they fail to step in line, we shall boil their heads and feed them to Hillary Clinton.

 directly from your profile;

"I am a Nintendo supporter and I really dislike Sony"

are you really the most trustworthy person on this issue?



@BCNR34: Calling any system a toy in a despective manner, is in fact breaking a rule. No wonder why you got the banishments, read the rules next time.
