    Concerned about this community

    Post by Deadpool on Mon Mar 12, 2012 6:40 am

    I just joined this site barely a day ago and was reading some threads and was shocked. I've seen to many threads being locked and people getting hurt by rather disgusting comments. I frankly am scared to post anything about this game. I have many opinions to say about things but have seen on some threads that opinions don't look welcomed. I even saw a thread that someone told another person their opinion was wrong. How is someone's personal opinion wrong? Anyways, no need to comment on this folks, just wanted to say I hope the integrity of this community stays away from such behavior that is unfitting for such a fine establishment that has become so active in such little time. I say just give everyone the benifit of the doubt and stay positive.

    I have been noticing an increase in such flame starting threads, but it will probably die and calm down soon. This thread itself actually might get such attention, but it really shouldn't. This is a genuine concern, I know I probably seem pretty venomous myself with how I speak of Farmers, but as a Forest Hunter it should kind of be expected of me.

    Deadpool, you have no need for concern as long as you don't get involved with some people's petty arguments, and just say things in a respectful way and it will be fine for you happy

    Haven't really been on the past few days, but I do see it. Mostly seems like people who just register to cause trouble and expect to be banned. Also some subjects are just touchy for people, I myself and very critcal of the gaming industry and can rant against someone if I'm not watching what I am typing. I wouldn't be to worried, if anything the off-topic thread is a good place to post in.

    I just think that some folks should just lighten up a bit. Some just nail it down and will stay on that person til they are hurt or the thread is locked. I think threads should be locked cause of off topic reasons, not cause of fighting for 3 pages worth over a sword or item. But I have seen some great people and met some interesting characters.

    That's the problem with having a diverse community and having anonymity, people sometimes just want to act bad. However the admins and mods are great and lay down the law very well.

    Also if you think this place is getting bad, I invite you to check the FFXIAH.com forums and then say it again. Fun fact, Google actually dropped them from their add service and I don't think they have been put back on after roughly one year.

    It's a good community, there are many worse ones out there, i.e the Bioware forums.

    I lost interest after jar-jar binx. Did they get worse? I got banned from the Star Wars TOR forums (run by bioware) for saying that I was unhappy with the game and was cancelling my sub. It's like the internet version of North Korea.

    EA forums, you have to post with your origin account and if you get banned from the forums you also get banned from playing ANY of the games you legally bought because they are all tied to your account. Seriously some of the things companies think of... I could go waaaaay more off-topic with this, but it would be considered a rant and may possible be considered a hate crime.

    Now now stay on topic. Keep to this community, not others.

    Racism? I've only seen Racism once in a thread on this site and that guy got banned, he only made his account apparently to taunt people and put forth the idea that he was the greatest Dark Souls player ever.

    Hmm, I take it you saw a thread starting with the letter Z? By the way I think it is best not to direct things to the thread.

    These new forums are actually very better than the old ones. Without censor, there were so many troll threads, hijacking threads and even some people used to do more than one account to keep the pointless conversation

    U were directing to a thread. I stated I saw racism in a thread, not an exact one

    There is a report button also, bottom left corner of your posts, opposite of the quote. That long yellow ! inbetween the triangle and the double !! with a lock on it is the report button. If you see something breaking the rules or something that shouldn't really be there report away on it. I personally give it a little time to see if they'll go back and redit on stuff like swearing or actually describing how to do one of the glitches.

    I didn't say the title of the thread, just a single letter, as well I wasn't implying that you did direct at it just saying that we should try to avoid it. I'm not trying to imply anyone is doing anything wrong here, just trying to understand what rubbed you so wrong.

    Please, do not feel threatened. This site is very helpful and has many good people in it as I have seen when I first joined yesterday. I made this thread for people to read and hopefully think back on it when arguments erupt and choose to take the high road.

    No worries. You active users seem pretty cool. It's the active users that make a forum.

    First forum? Wait a second, you are a noobie? Get the paddles! silly

    Yeah I've been on a lot of forums in my time and this is definitely one of the best ones I've seen. I might actually attribute it to the size, because it does always seems that the larger a community gets, the more awful people you'll see. But I think it's just more so the loud minority ruining it for the silent majority.

    Mine too Tolvo, sorry bud, your turning out to be a minority in this thread silly (joking, your cool bud).

    On topic: Based on what I have seen, this forum is amongst the most friendly forums you will find out there. It is unfortunate to see a few unpleasant threads pop up, but on the whole people here keep things very measured and respectful big grin. If one should ever feel negatively when these unpleasant threads occur, we need only look back at those who maintain such civility to be reminded that we are amongst friends here.
