Forums - Website Topics - A Message To Our Xbox Community...

This is a nice thought/action. I am not really partial to any of the company’s, but I do notice there is a passion against Xbox on this site. It almost feels like there is more passion for bashing Xbox then praising their preferred company. Which is weird to me, almost feels like a political conversation. It’s a tricky line to walk, but I’m sure you guys will do great!

The smart thing to do is bash Xbox in moderation to avoid moderation.



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

I think one of the things which usually create a lot of tension and bad blood is click bait articles being used to create threads / topics. Similar to Gaf and Era I think it would be good if thread topics can be vetted based on sources of the article / info linked.

Once vetted, if more questions need to be asked to the OP they can or the new thread can be denied and a reason given to the OP.

The best way to create a safe space is vetting the topics as they often encourage toxic behaviours.

Sometimes rewording /phrasing can go a long way and mods can help do this before publishing a new topic.

Well, my point is actually pretty much aligned to this. 
Fei-Hun g may be referring to news tho (which imo should not be a problem) but I'm talking about user threads here. Again, those are really obvious on the forums.

Any new topic I believe. Its possible to use news or just off your own back create a click bait thread. 

Us gamers are passionate creatures and sometimes this passion takes over. Vetting a new topic can help ensure there is a balanced and well thought out start to a topic. Mods could even add rules to the topic if they believe it may go wrong as a sub section below the topic.

It's not specific to this website tho. I am in several forums all accross the globe, and there is always the same issue: moderators asking people to stop bashing/making fun of Xbox fans, one of my favourite forums has its Xbox section locked since yesterday to "clean up" an ban users who are not really fans of the brand.

I think the issue is more widely spread that we can imagine.

I think it's mainly a matter of XBox being the least popular of the three consoles (objectively in terms of sales). That leads to more users for the other platforms. That means they can attack without much fear of reprisal, and will generally be supported, whereas if you insult Sony of Nintendo, you're more likely to get shot down. There's also the factor that Sony and Nintendo are older companies in terms of gaming. A lot more people grew up with Nintendo or Sony than Microsoft, and the passions you form in childhood tend to be stronger. Plus, Microsoft is the richest and most powerful of the three companies, and to some people that is a negative.  



Thank you.
For whatever reason, I've grown to love the Xbox brand and it kinda sucks having the console constantly being attacked. I mean constructive criticism is a good thing but when you have those that refuse to see any good, it's a little disheartening.

I often find myself attacking Sony and n Nintendo (two brands I absolutely love) in retaliation. We're all just gamers and the hobby should be fun. Thanks for doing what you can to keep it that way.

I've thought about this and I'm sure others have been in the same boat.

The enemy of my enemy is my friend and Minecraft on Switch makes them one of Nintendo's best 3rd party devs so they're OK by me either way.



Nov 2016 - NES outsells PS1 (JP)

Don't Play Stationary 4 ever. Switch!

Yeah the amount of shit the X box community got was a bit out of balance , this site needs to keep being inviting for all fans so this is surely a good thing.

attack the perpetrator not the brand should be thy motto, these words of wisdom spring forth from the rosy red lips of your probation officer.

Yeah i think those two communities tend to be far more aggressive and defensive towards those that have criticism.(from my own experience in this place ofcourse)



Yea this was very much needed. This site having Xbox fans is a positive thing as it allows more diversity in opinions and discussion. Stadia fans on the other hand...

Spoiler!
