Another Bump.

Still working on things, everyone. Miguel's had some stuff going on the last few weeks and that is something that none of us could help. I anticipate this week for action, though. Just hang on a little longer!

No worries. In April I've told everyone who asked me if the mod team can meet the deadline that it's not going to happen because the mod team never meets the deadline. You are right on schedule.

You would argue they could use some austrian pünktlichkeit

Instead of seeking to convince others, we can be open to changing our own minds, and seek out information that contradicts our own steadfast point of view. Maybe it’ll turn out that those who disagree with you actually have a solid grasp of the facts. There’s a slight possibility that, after all, you’re the one who’s wrong.

Aside from new mods i think the team needs to start get a bit more strickt on the generalisation of claims as if made by a whole userbase and sneaky bait posts

No worse than using terms like 'butthurt'. ;)

Should have atleast been a warning just like have a seat or calm your tits, or stop doing a quickrick.

Edit actually that butthurt refers to being mad,angry, triggered in a question not a statement so it is worse!

I agree with kirby007. Generalisations are a widely known loophole in the forum rules and they come with the additional benefit of lower accountability, i.e. since no specific names are mentioned, it's easy for users to wiggle themself out of it by playing dumb, if they ever get called out for it. As such, the chance to get moderated for this practice, even when performed on a repeated and regular basis, sits around 1%. It's laughably easy to attack users or entire fanbases who are not liked and make things up on the fly, because the mod team doesn't push for transparency.

If anytime a generalisation happened a mod showed up and gave the choice of naming names for proof or retracting the generalisation along with an apology, and failure to do either thing within 24 hours will lead to moderation, that would really scare the people who use the loophole.



Legend11 correctly predicted that GTA IV (360+PS3) would outsell SSBB. I was wrong.

Who woulda thought?  ;p

In seriousness, I'm one of the mods who Moderates for generalizations, but everyone shouldn't be. It's a teaching moment (something the new mods will have to get used to as they are trained). Sometimes, people don't even realize they're doing it, nor that it is an issue in the forums. So, it is an area I already plan to make adjustments to, both formally and in our Rule Set. I'll disclose that when we announce our new additions to the team.

Cool, I'll be happy to work with you.

Im quite sober, now but i just realised why would one happening not excuse the other? i dont see how me using the word butthurt makes the other thing actually valid.

thats like saying a guy stole a million bucks.
and on a different day someone else kills people and says but hey that guy stole a million bucks he is bad aswell.



this is in no way a admittance of that butthurt was wrong.
