But I seem to find things inconsistent.  I've reported some threads that don't get locked even they are trolling which is against the rules, and i've reported threads that get locked right away.  But i'm not quite sure why my topics would get reported.  They aren't trolling, or deserve to be in another topic.  It also seems to be the case that if I report someone, the mod locks my thread instead of doing anything to the other person.

 

 

Mods aren't going to keep bouncing in and out of a thread, warning loads of people over and over again.

 

If a thread gets way too messy, it gets locked, plain and simple.  It's the easiest solution.

 

This.

Who says they have to warn people over and over?  Just one warning and that would shut someone up.

One locked topic and you act like the world has gone to sh*t. Take a midol, learn from your mistakes, sitting here bitching about power abusing moderators isn't helping your cause and only digging yourself deeper.

 

I highly doubt they were abusing their power, because if I was a moderator right now, I'd ban you.

I know right? People shouldn't complain about the mods.

I never made mistakes.  But assholes who visit my threads do.

This is basically what caused my thread on the kitty cat dance to get locked because of trolls...  10 hours went so smoothly till some mouthoff kid had to ruin it and get it locked. 

 

I ain't gonna blame the mods for locking good threads & not wanna deal with every minute drama that comes in on it, Feel sad for them, never had a grudge against them either.

Why get upset at the moderators then? They've closed the thread because it spiraled out of control, not to single you out. They can either take the f*cking time to go through and approach each off topic post or they can close the thread. 99% of the time, they're going to close the thread.

 

Where you may mess up though, is arguing with the people in your topic. Don't argue back, just report the member that's derailing or causing issues and mods will step in and take care of the issue. If they have to come in and see that it's spiraled far too much, then they will close the topics.

 

Also, it's just an internet topic man. Does it honestly ruin your life in any way? Your game? Your finances? No, so don't sweat it.

Here's the amazing topic darkwar is talking about.

 

1. Comparing GTA V with WD.

2. Bitching about map size.

3. Bitching about grass in a game... wow, I don't even need to explain this.

 

Yup, it was completely wrong to lock your topic and I should be banned.

You need to learn the difference between bitching and discussing.  I was discussing why the map in GTA 5 didn't feel right.  I can say that you are bitching about me.  And you know I reported you which is also why mods are biased.  You should not know that stuff.

I could say the same thing to you and considering the opinions of other posters in your topic, my statement holds more water than yours.

No.  All your statement says is that you are biased against anything that conflicts with your opinion.  Hence that snip of you saying "I don't like sh*t threads".  Opinion, and your job isn't to have one.

 

Mods need to have to...

  • Give a reason for locking a thread.  Not some smart ass response.
  • Instead of locking a topic because of spammers, just ban the spammers from the topic.

Actually, I locked it because it was pointless spam. Which is a re-occurring theme amongst people who bitch and whine about their topics being closed. The usual reason, in my experience, is because the topic is duplication of something somewhere else; like questions outside of question topics and videos posted as the it own threads. The second-biggest reason is simply that the topics are sh*t or intentional troll-bait.

And you needs to learn not to try and make demands of staff when the rules of the forum say, in no uncertain terms, that you're a guest on a free service and have no rights.

If you don't approve of how staff run the forum, go away. It's a damn sight easier for all concerned than having to tolerate your pointless whining.

If people wanted your opinion on how the site was run we'd ask for it.
