Forums - General Discussion - A farewell.

 Rule 10 turned out to be what I thought it would. A well-intentioned idiotic mistake that's going to be misused. It makes it too easy for mods to moderate people for anything. The majority of what people say are generalizations because they're opinions based on preference or anecdotes. The rule can't be applied across the board so it requires mods to judge whether it's okay or not not based on their opinion. The result of this is alot of questionable bans.

The mod team is unwilling to debate or discuss moderations. As far as I can tell, the team is unwilling to walk back these kind of bans. Due to all this and in my opinion, the forum is headed in the wrong direction and I rather not be around when shit hits the fan. I'm gonna take a break from here for however long. I like most of ya and this community but I like being able to speak my mind without fear of idiotic bans more. I'm not asking for a permaban. I'll come back when shit is better and the mods are open to debating their decisions.

What is rule 10? Goodbye, maybe we will see you again.



Oh yeah, your ban was a stupid one. Seems like it was basically for being "wrong". Especially ridiculous when you actually used sources as well. But yeah, rather than point out any mistakes, give opposing sources or form any kind of counterargument they just went for a ban.



Bet Shiken that COD would outsell Battlefield in 2018. http://gamrconnect.vgchartz.com/post.php?id=8749702

Right when we just had a direct?That is one bad timming!



My (locked) thread about how difficulty should be a decision for the developers, not the gamers.

I made a thread satirizing all the racists on VGChartz but you were banned when I made it so the thread kind of became pointless. In that respect I wish you weren't banned because it made my point mute. Anyways, so long I guess.

Adios old friend



I don't know to which extent it's related to that new rule and the closing of the mod thread, but there have certainly been a lot of very questionable moderations lately.


Anyways, I hope you don't stay away for too long. I don't like you but VGC is getting really boring without people like you.



Half the peoplr in Rols 'open letter...' thread needs to be banned for rule 10. Just look at all that generalizing. But yeah, The banning here is getting worse but I have to say that my last ban, which was justified although only from my own ignorance was tolled back to a day when my later posts in that thread were looked at so there must be some communication between mods, the general userbase seems to be getting more toxic to itself and I see a lotta tension where it used to be free going here so I guess the mods have to deal with that also, hell, maybe it's just the really hot summer that has people more prone to anger.
I'd say don't give up and stay on but making the point to leave may change things, so best of luck lad. Hopefully that flimsy rule as well as the lack of communication before bans may return to what it was.



You are a pretty nice guy, don"t let it get to you.

If you got any balls, just say what you're implying.
