To the mods, I apologize if this is the wrong sub forum to post this. However, I felt it would fit the topic considering it's called "Debates and Discussion"
So, we all know that the arguments, troll topics, moderator diss topics, etc. have gone through the roof for the past week. The reason I created this topic is simple - why are there so many of them?
I understand that most of them are trolls, but why are there people literally threatening a moderator over a topic lock? What caused all of this "drama" to go down for the past week? Are the members getting more sensitive?
To be honest, like I said in my previous thread in the "Site Suggestions" sub forum, a delay between creating an account could temporarily stop it, but this thread also goes out to the moderators.
You guys, while most of your actions are debatable and trivial, help keep this site clean. However, we also have people that want a moderator free forum. Let's say there was a mod free forum - it would be catastrophic and a huge mess. However, there would also be more freedom in the posts.
The majority of the new members really don't know this off hand. Basically, (by the way this fits the site suggestion thread, but I'll keep it short and to the point) maybe there should be a rule page as soon as you create an account. That way, it wouldn't necessarily cut the argument topics completely, but there would be more order, and therefore, save the mods time.
Let's face it, this site gets tons of new members daily, and if there isn't a rule page upon account creation, then the forums will pretty much get worse.
I love this site to death, and it takes up about 97% of my daily routine, in a good way. With the massive amounts of topics just bashing, and ranting about the moderators, I just had to speak my mind about this.
This is a very bad issue, and unless a rule page is implemented, this forum will eventually become a flame war.
This isn't a rant on the forum itself, it's a rant about the minority of people that ruin the experience.
Thanks for reading, also I want this to be an open discussion, so we can leave the arguments out of the GTA Online section.
