Make me a mod, i'm not bias against anything. Plus i don't troll the site like wii fans.

Bad idea. (Didn't you just got banned because of trolling?).


 I have never been banned, you must have me confused with someone else.


 Ok sorry, I thought it was you :s;

You might be thinking of KillZone3.

Not like they could be the same person or anything like that.

Better idea, lets all put our cash together and get each mod a PS3, they will have no other choice than to become PS3 fanboys.

Seriously though you guys are way to high on your "everybody hates the PS3" trip, the mods do a very fine job here and saying they are biased is unfair, save their oh so biased posts, show them and discus, but don´t just say everyone is biased, this site had much more PS3 support back in late Dec. and January when I started coming here, but ever since the PS3 lost all hope of catching the Wii more Nintendo fans have come and Sony fans have left. The mods have nothing to do with the fact that Nintando is popular right now, are they supposed to say they are sorry for not having a PS3 ??? They moderate very well but they can´t stop Nintendo fans from saying their oppinion.


You should check my posts in the "Another mod bites in the dust' thread.

Then you understand why.


 Sorry I tryed to find that thread but the search forum option is not working that great, have a link ???



 

 

 

Dude...here it is:

Truly a horrid idea, and I will tell you why. The argument is a blatant crutch, and that is all it is. Giving them a token mod changes nothing, and rewards them for troll like behavior. Finally they will either move on to another abomination, or extrapolate out a verbose logic that says the site has actually gotten more biased. They do not want a mod they want their circular excuse so they can dance out of a debate they are losing by proclaiming its all a conspiracy.

The answer is not more mods. The answer is giving the mods popular consent to ban posters that are trotting out these tactics. I think we can all agree any poster that flames, and then yanks out the call of bias is not a poster worth keeping around. Your not going to get intelligent conversation out of them, and more likely your going to see them destroy good threads.

These trolls are using a pretty effective tactic. The mods dare not ban them, because it will make them look guilty. So they have to handle them with kid gloves, and worse they have to go so much farther then they should ever have a chance to. The result is the mods are bowing to public opinion that is not there. The overwhelming majority of us know it is utter nonsense, and this site is incredibly free. Most threads and posters get along just fine, and you can make any argument you damn well choose. All you need to be is civil and you can post.

I would like to say mods feel free to ban any poster that drags out this utter flame bait. We don't need them, and worse they do more damage to the image of Sony. They are keeping reasonable fans from making valid comments, and getting a entire section of the community a bad name. When you make valid points you have no need for this tripe. Well thought arguments are validation enough. Trolling helps a cause not at all.

Not that the rest of your post wasn't good, but this paragraph stands out the most.

You have become one of the best posters on this forum in a very short time frame. You write posts I wouldn't be able to and that's why I admire you (as well as some other members). Respect. 



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

Thanx etecoon, who did I miss that ??? I knew he was getting one anyway so good for him and no big deal for anybody else.

@ Konnichiwa: So what if a bunch of ignorant people think this site is biased, they didn´t even take the time the check who does modding and who posts sales. As I sayed, do you think getting some mods PS3s will solve that problem ??? Or getting a mod who is a big PS3 fan ??? It would change nothing. Big time Sony fans come here, see the PS3 isn´t doing as well as hoped so they call bias and leave, good to see you don´t have problems with reality. Those guys need to wake up and see that this site has no problem with Sony fans, Sony(or Nintendo or Ms) fans with reality problems is what we don´t like around here.

@ Dodence: I mostly agree, still you can´t just ban people questioning the integrity of the mods, that would prove them right and help them make a point, asking for facts and ignoring those who have none is the only way tho go IMO. Just like a democracy this site has to fight a never ending battle to prove its own integrity or it can ban those questioning it and never regain its good reputation.

Does anybody here think major newspapers around the world quote this site because they wan the opinion of rampant Nintendo fanboys ??? They also have fect-checkers, whach the Youtube clip on them to see what I mean (it has Bill Murray in it so it pretty funny)

 Your post is great (SERIOUS).

(Buy guys don't open threads later like ' OMG on FORUM X they call VGCHARTZ biased because they say all mods on VGCHARTZ are Wii fanboys')

Very bad idea, you should add moderators because they deserve the position, not because they love certain console.

Most sony fans on this site are very vocal to the point of trolling when defending their system of choice. People like Hus trolled the forum for months before he got banned, so i don't think they need anyone to protect them.

Besides, people like Benkenobbi, theSource, roadkillers, stof, aren't biased when it comes to moderating. Actually, the only mods that clearly show their bias are mrstickball and ckmlb.

If you can't hide your bias when moderating, you shouldn't be a mod IMO.

somg of course not, we wouldnt want to add another thats not a wii mod ehh, j/p

but it seems you said mr stick and ckmlb show their bias the most, yet those two are two of the only 3 that are not pro wii, interesting......
