Forums - General Discussion - Got a Ban on NeoGaf...

Nah there is no perfect forum and perfect mod, either in here VGC or Gaf, or even in the real world.

Meh, you probably deserved it.

I imagine the mod thought your post took a bigoted tone and he just slapped the ban hammer on you. And honestly, who can blame em'.

They more than likely don't want their forum looking like a Youtube comments section which can quickly happen since we've seen people who spam the word "PC" often don't appear to have any logic of what's out of line or not.

My advice if it wasn't a permaban is to just take it as a learning experience and make smarter post in the future. If it was a permaban, then just cut your losses and move on. It's not like you're not entitled to post there, and if they think they banning the worst faction of forum users and you get banned in the process, then so be it. It's best for both parties as you won't be able to post the content that you want and the staff would repeatedly have to take action against you, so either way, it's best to just cut ties now.



Well, I didn't think what you said was particularly bad. As far as other forums being better? I think they all have their "good ole boys" that more than get the benefit of doubt. This site included.

I got banned only one time there, when they catch one of the lizard squad retards i made some joke about prison. It was a damn good joke but i got banned for a rape joke xD. It was a rape joke ... it was only a few days.

oxymoron

Due to this chain of comments I learned a new word in English.  I now eagerly await the moment someone says something that is seemingly contradictory to say hey thats an oxymoron my friend.





Well you say a black character and said it looked ghetto,what did you expect?

OT
Did you look at that new Egyptian movie and thought it looked to European as well.

Yep neogaf has the worst moderation team on the internet



Damn that sucks. Gaf may have horribly strict mod rules, but their gaming community threads seem very active including the less popular multiplayer games of a console.

And the worst part is that you can't contest a ban and no one can see why you were banned. And if you're a junior member they just permaban you on your first ban. It gives total control for crappy mods to push their agenda. VGC is perfect in comparison.

Yup I found that out the hard way. A mod changed a title on a thread to one that was clearly flamebait, I called them out on it, got permabanned because I was a junior. There reasoning was because they thought I didn't want to be part of their community even though that was the only post I ever made that was even slightly controversial.

It's not really that big of a deal though since I didn't post there consistantly but now I can't go through their Media Create archive which sucks.

Again, there I could see why they banned you. 

A mod staff's main job is to keep out trolls, and I'm sorry, but if you're intentionally making threads as flamebait, and taking the discussion away from gaming, then to me that sounds like trolling.

I was apart of a none gaming forum that didn't ban because of stuff that, and now 90% of the threads are "controversial" discusstions which are popular because they get boat loads of replies. So some may not like it, but they're just trying to keep their forum from going down the crapper (which is why you need a private email to even register to Gaf btw). 





Gaf is a jungle. You won't know which type of monster will kill your account. lol!
