Many companies lay off employees due to Covid-19, VGC keeps hiring.

Well, with what they're paying me, they could afford it. XD

You don't have to tell me. I used to be a moderator too...

Congratz to everyone.



May CGI slowly drain away your youth & vigor until you're little more than feckless husks.

Congrats to new mods! ;)



Welcome to the team!

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.

Welcome aboard!

What this site needs is mods with a fair amount of restraint. I hope the new guys meet that criteria.

I'm going to defend the team here. More restraint is exercised than most will ever know. We are not perfect by any means, but we let a lot of things slide that wouldn't on other sites (or with previous mod teams ~ 2016 and prior). 

Of course, we appreciate the feedback and will work on improving ourselves where necessary, but not all things will see a brute force method of fix.

To be clear, I'm not trying to say anything negative about the current mod team.  The forums here are great, in large part due to the work that they do. We  I'm just sayin', as I have before, that I think this site would benefit from having slightly more permissive standards around what kind of comments are acceptable.

Example of said comment types?

I don't think I said that the right way.  What I mean is that (IMO, of course) the forums would benefit from rules being *slightly* less strictly enforced in general. I'm not so much asking for a change in policy as I am encouraging mods to err on the side of being too lenient.

It's a tough balancing act.  On the one hand you can have a place like Neogaf that can kind of have a hive mind feel, and on the other you have the ign comments section.  I think we're generally in a good place. 

I don't think CGI is asking for details defensively, but it's kind of hard to change (or consider changing) without something a bit more concrete.  And if you don't have an example off the top of your head, post in the mod thread when one crops up.
