Stop the Negativity

Postby VZhitogoroshi » Wed Apr 16, 2008 6:04 pm

I don't like WoW either, but I think anyone who goes into the WoW forum for the SOLE PURPOSE of saying "wow suxs lol" be banned for a week or something. Don't like it, stay out, as I do. Seriously.

ALSO, no matter how much you HATE ERAGON FROM THE BOTTOM OF YOUR SOUL, bringing it up for no reason is hijacking. I don't know why so many people think it's cool to hate stuff, but it's just annoying to read. If it's on topic, you can say why you dislike it. But always ask, "why?". If no one is looking for your opinion on the game itself (WoW) or if no one is talking about Eragon, don't bring it up, kthnkbai.

Yeah, there is a bit of negativity. I think off topic negativity should be handled the same way as we off topic FCN(Sera) messages, however that is handled. ~_~

This thread itself is negative.

Ah, but there is a crucial difference. I am not suggesting that life is always big huggy roses. I am merely saying that when someone is trying to have a discussion, posting "this game you enjoy is dumb and I will constantly go to the forum devoted to it just so I can express my hate" is heinous f*ckery most foul. It's not negative opinions that are bad, it's forcing them into discussions that is.

This really should have been more of a 'Report' to bring this to my attention.
There is no need to create an ecosystem for it to thrive in.
Direct my gaze at this post or posts that has irked you so I can deal with it/them.

Ignore them / report the post to an admin. No need to work yourself up over it.

Well thats the thing. It's not like a reportable problem or anything. Just, it seems to be in vogue to have everyone flame and derail WoW topics. I hate the game myself, but I don't want this to happen. It shouldn't need admin intervention, it should just need a bit more maturity on when/where you post. :roll:

The only solution in my humble opinion is to delete the WoW forum. . . >__>

I was sure I was the first to reply....whatever.

Anyways, the Eragon stuff hasn't been touched in months (I thought), and WoW is, IMO, just playful poking (unless I've somehow missed recent posts). So just use the report post feature if it is bad. *Shrugs*

Funny thing was that 99% of the reports were by Dusk. You guys need to use the report function more often. It's there for a good reason.

You know that after Gestapo and communism people from Central and Eastern Europe aren't keen to denounce on each other? ;P
