I put all available studios on COD. I lobby Papa Phil to change the name of the company to CODSoft. Other products become Call of the Office, Callzure, CODing, Callype, and the like.

So we would all be perpetually doomed from Microsoft without even getting Doom?

@Dulfite I'm giving you a warning via this post that if your poll options aren't updated to be more civil then this thread will be closed and you'll be receiving a moderation of some kind. Things such as "Salty Playstation fan here, BOOOOO!" as an option clearly aren't acceptable and you absolutely know this, kinda' obvious that you made the poll with ill intent. Get it changed otherwise I'll be taking action.

Um, what? It was made in jest. There are multiple silly options in that poll that show it isn't a serious poll. I doubt anyone here has 10 RTX's, and I also implied Switch owners are too self absorbed to put their Switch down to want to do this, and I even have representation for the person who is so arrogant they think their game should be on the list. It's a sarcastic poll, I won't be changing it.

Now, I'm giving you a warning about taking things too seriously, about coming into a silly thread meant for the laughs and creativity, and coming out guns blazing against me as if you were already upset about something in your life. If you don't take down your warning, I'll be taking action by posting less/no threads that earn the site clicks.

You have one day.

+1  This couldn't be a more obvious joke. If people are reporting it, they need to......I dunno, chill or something.

Looking at it from their perspective it would definitely seem like a salt in the wound situation. People are upset about losing games etc. and then they come across a "joke thread" referring to them as salty fans (Which in itself is a bannable offence, but I gave Dulfite the option to change it). Surely you understand how that could upset people, right? All I'm doing is enforcing forum rules, and he's changed the poll now even if it's not ideal.

You are always, on any site, going to have people that get unreasonably offended about things. It is a small minority. But this site does a little too much moderation, in my opinion, and that risks losing a LOT more viewers/clicks/forum members that you'd lose by offending a few people out of the site here and there. If we were like 4/8Chan with all their horrible posts, that would be one thing, but this site is hardly a place of hatred, so rooting out every little thing because a few people got bothered isn't really worth it. If you were to ban me, as you say what I did was banable, then that's one less cow this site has to milk for clicks/views as I make a decent amount of threads that get a lot of replies. I'm not trying to be arrogant, there are many others that posts threads often as well, but any milk cow you kill obviously stops producing milk. You may not care about it as a moderator, but your bosses do, the writers do. Have a little empathy for those people needing those paychecks for their hard earned money from writing before you threaten cows over the complaints of a few people that were no doubt already triggered to begin with. Ease up, enjoy the more amusing things, and if you REALLY think something needs to be addressed, then message me first rather than posting your clear anger in a thread the way you did.

There was no anger in my post, I worded it sternly as I generally do with these things, but I can assure you there was no anger... there are many things that make me angry, but a random thread on a gaming forum isn't one of them lol. Sorry if it came across that way. Also standard protocol with something like this is to post a thread warning letting you know what the issue is, I also feel it comes across as more transparent that way too.

TL;DR reports came in about your poll. I asked you to change it. You did (Although I'd have put it differently). Happy endings all around.

PS. About the "Too much moderation" thing, we have people with the complete opposite viewpoint here too, who think we don't do enough, it's just another part of the endless struggles of being a mod... we're too strict, we're too relaxed, we don't ban enough people, we ban too many people, we hate Microsoft fans, we hate Sony fans, we hate Nintendo fans, we always side with Microsoft fans, we always side with Sony fans, we always side with Nintendo fans, honestly every day it's like someone rolls a dice and whatever it ends up on, that's how people feel towards us lol.

How much money would I make? As long as I get my bonus because of record profits, while firing hundreds of employees for no reason, I'm fine.

You get to choose:

1) $100 million annually.

2) Greenland

3) The entire metaverse.

4) To actually exist in the world of Animal Crossing.

5) To make Cortana become human so her and Chief can get married.

6) Prevent Project X Zone, the worst game of all time, from ever being made.

Oh that's a hard choice. Living in the world of Animal Crossing would mean I have unlimited time to pay off my mortgages. Very enticing. But I have to take the cash. And I also need to fire half the staff and then complain that I don't have the recources for more games. And I want a bonus every month for doing nothing.

*You choose $100 million annually. But you must roll the dice and see what else happens.

1 does nothing different.

2 makes you go back two steps.

3 forces you to gift $70 million annually to Jeff Bezos so he can continue going to space. He thanks you annually.

4 causes the $100 million annually to be paid in the form of fireworks. Every year, you get $100 million worth of fireworks delivered to your house.

5 does the same thing as 4, but every year someone lights one of the fireworks and you only have 10 seconds to figure out which one to put out... or else...

6 that money is spent making the final season of Game of Thrones 6 episodes longer, makes it so the night battle is actually visible, eliminates all sex scenes, and has Jon Snow going crazy alongside Daenerys and they rule all the kingdoms together, a crazed-in-love power couple focused on consuming the world.

*You roll a 4.

You have 10 seconds, what do you do next?

Damn this sounds cool.. If I was Phil I'd put all studios working on horror adventure game starring detective Michael Scott who travels to mysterious town called Innsmouth to investigate a case where the staff of Dunder Mifflin paper company is missing.
