I think Vgchartz has definitely gotten a lot worse lately. Especially with the closure of the moderator thread. As a person who has never been banned, I consider leaving by myself every week. Luckily I should get busy soon and the problem will solve itself.
The interesting thing about the Mod thread? That was the third one. Previous Mod teams have locked those for similar reasons we felt to temporarily lock this one. It was getting out of hand. It's not like this is some new phenomenon. I was warned by previous mods how these things work. People are going to contest moderations, even if they are totally in the wrong. A handful of people just see the user's angle in it. That the mods have suddenly started banning for no reason. Of course, that couldn't be further from the truth and many mods are willing to work with people. Ryuu and I are both willing to do that as things adjust and change. If we've made mistakes, and we have, then we've been willing to correct them (or at least give most things a second look). Previous Mod teams wouldn't have even allowed for this thread to go on as long as it has, let alone a lot of other things that happen around the site. Guess what? VGC lived and thrived just fine. Things happen. People make mistakes. I will work with anyone who's willing to meet us half way.
So, while I hear what some of you are saying, I'm also gonna stand firm on moderations issued from infractions that were clearly destructive. As for The Mod Thread? Well, I'll just say that it won't be completely ruled out for a re-open, but there will probably be a few guidelines thrown in so it can remain open. Or, if we don't do that, we'll offer some other means of communicating with mods. Rest assured, we'll have something, but we'll also need cooperation so that it doesn't end up where the last few have.
