So yeah they deleted my big post that I answered to you Grafikm. Also got an Infraction. Gotta love the community here, as soon as you don't agree with the mods/ the majority, it's time to bring up the admin tools. Anyway cba rewriting it, and it'd probably get deleted again.
Weren't you calling people "Cancer" and using terms like "GTFO" and other bullshit? To me that looks like a good reason for an infraction.
"Gotta love the community here" give me a break...
Still, this is extremly silly. People should go play the game and enjoy the challenge and upcomming changes. If not, move on and let the rest have fun. Nobody cares about how you judge the game. Its just sad to read threads with same story over and over.
Every single post on this forum from the day it was opened could have been done without, and we would all be as happy or unhappy with our lives as we are today. But your argument suggests that "nobody cares that you <emotion> the <person/thing>."
Nobody cares that you think the AH makes loot too easy to obtain.
Nobody cares that you think the whining about the shortcomings of the game are redundant.
Nobody cares that you feel anything about anything.
Which means your post is just another useless opinion in a chain of useless opinions. Yet we all come here for some reason... Something to think about.
Left for a couple days for a business trip, come back to see this . For crying out loud, how hard is it to read and understand the most basic forum rules?
AIRING THE DIRTY LAUNDRY like this isn't standard, not do I like doing it, but I feel like for the sake of clarity to other members/readers, it's gonna be necessary this time (specially after all the LIES that have been spread).
First and last time I'm gonna talk about this, because some users seem to have a very ignorant view on this particular subject. (and if you wanna continue this discussion, do it through PMs, but NOT in this thread!)
Besides that, I have to agree with you that mods sometimes overreact. This is very pathetic. If the mods are so strict, they should have deleted the initial post instead.
Yes, Shad3slayer's post got deleted. It started with a very clear "GTFO Cancer" (and went downhill from there). How civil and polite is that? Blatant, direct flaming like that will notbe tolerated, as long as I am a moderator here and keep true to my oath of protecting the integrity the Diablofans forums. For as long as I can, I will not let it dwindle into a mess of trolls and haters, venting frustration and negativity on others every single day, instead of a place where people can calmly discuss the game. There are other forums who don't mind that.
His other post was clearly directed at another member (who called him out on breaking the forum rules), by mocking that member with his own words, and flaming him. Again, that trollish crap will not be tolerated here.
Ruksak's initial post wasn't directed at anyone (except maybe shaggy, but I can't really stop them from going at each other, believe me I tried). It isn't an attempt to troll people or bait them into an argument (which is what trolling is), it's just an honest opinion of an old and dedicated member, with a very valid frustration on some attitudes by the game developer. That is NOT against the rules. Ruksak was infracted a couple dozen times (almost all of them by me), but this particular post/thread does NOT directly and exclusively break any rules.
Also, the mods are only strict to people with different opinions than them, obviously. I've seen many instances were people are VERY rude/ name calling towards people who are unhappy with the game/ voice their dissatisfaction, yet I've never seen those moderated.
Just because you don't see infractions, it doesn't mean they're not there. Again, I don't usually do this. But I feel like I need to vent it and go out of line this time...Grow a fucking brain?!?!
You really think I can be strict to people with different opinions than me for almost 2 years, and just get away with it? I'm the fucking minority, bro!!! Almost nobody thinks the game is good enough, everyone complains!!! Me and a couple forum members are the only ones who actually speak up their minds and defend the game, even with the past hundreds/thousands of posts against it. I'm not gonna apologise for liking the game, speaking up my mind in a civil manner, nor for enforcing the forum rules. Sorry...
I have infracted dozens of users for defending the game in an overly aggressive, sarcastic or trollish tone. Some of them present in this particular thread (want me to PM you their infracted posts?). Know your facts before spewing false shit about someone you don't know.
Yeah the reason it got deleted was it had a kind of offensive part that consisted of 2 words >.>
... and the rest of the post was so polite, uh? Let's see some quotes >>>> "learn to read" .... "so pathetic" .... "but yeah, you're so smart"... "acting big" ... "say something smart for once" ...
Stop pretending to be the poor little fella being wronged by the mean evil mod. You're nothing but a prick, who really only uses your alledged superior intellect when it suits you.
Could have just edited them out (the mod I mean).
Or you could have not written all that crap in the first place? My work here isn't to fix the shitty posts that break the rules.
Did you get infracted for contradicting me? NO! Even though your post was extremely aggressive towards my opinion, specially when I called you out on what were outright false facts. But I didn't care, I backed off. I don't usually feed trolls.
No, you got infracted for breaking the forum rules. You got warned, did it again. As long as you can't understand the basic forum rules, I'm gonna keep infracting you, because that's what I'm here to do.
I Agree ras, But when It's not against any one nor was going for anyone that you just pointed out how much better diablo 2 and TQ did with their skills / passives you kinda wonder why It's considering as flaming.
Way to lie to other users about it even. Too bad the post is saved in our database.
Xpire was previously infracted for, I quote: "Only a retard like the current system". It wasn't a random comment, it was a directed commentary about previouS postS that he didn't agree with. Again, calling people retards (here we go again) _WILL NOT_ be tolerated around here.
I will CONTINUE to infract people who have that sort of attitude, as long as I'm a moderator here, whether they're defending or attacking the game.
No, saying bad stuff about a game is "whining" or saying good stuff about it is "fanboyism". Sure, some stuff is whining and some stuff is fanboyism, but really... You need to take the two apart. When you add something that could be better then the current thing its feedback, not whining. (good things can also be feedback.) Whining is when you talk down on something with out have anything to add that would make it better. Fanboyism is blindly worshiping everything about the game(s)..
Maybe you should listen to your own advice? Instead of calling others retards?
The second infraction was due to Publicly Discussing Moderation! (and he was clearly told about it) It's a basic rule in any online forum (read our rules, maybe?). You DO NOT discuss moderation acts taken against you in public threads. Firstly, it is almost always off-topic, and derails the thread; secondly, other users have absolutely nothing to do with that.
I'm ALWAYS open to discuss moderation via PMs, I have reviewed my position and actions multiple times because either I was outright wrong (as human beings sometimes are?) or the user step forward in a calm manner and explained himself and apologised for going a bit overboard. But NOT in someone else's thread, PERIOD.
You were CLEARLY explained about that Xpire, and you INSISTED in doing it again. TWICE!!!! In the same thread! How fucking hard is it to understand such a basic idea/rule? I don't want to live on this planet anymore
Same thing as the member BRX.
Almost every post in the past couple days/weeks has a comment on how whoever defends the game is a Blizzard shill/employee/advertiser, in a very sarcastic tone.
It adds nothing to any discussion, and only servers to provoke other users (with whom he disagrees). And he's done it AGAIN in this thread.
I haven't done anything so far. But now that the pattern has been shown, I will not let him keep poking others with that sort of trollish commentary hidden in his posts. If nothing is done, we might be getting 500+ posts from him saying the same crap, over and over and over again.
Also, the thread hasn't been about the original post for some time now. It was a healthy discussion for a while, and that's why I let it keep going (even if it was a bit off-topic) but now it has deteriorated into what you see in the last few posts.
As such, it's being locked. Sorry to have your "last thread" end like this, Ruksak
Hope to see you soon, so we can keep arguing about RoS features, disagreeing on what's good or bad design, and passionately trying to convince one another to change their opinions of the game...
