Simple: set a maximum boot rate allowed for forum posters. I recommend 20%. Here's the kind of morons that would automatically sort out:

I think it's a perfect idea. I sign my petition, and invite others to do the same

Alternatively, since the mods only have power to move threads, just create a "Troll" forum. There's no way to stop them, so might as well just move them out of the way.

The problem is that not everyone with a high boot rate is a troll. To be honest there is no reliable way to filter trolls, especially since the definition of troll changes from person to person.

The point is that most people with boot rates that high are morons, and rarely do anything worthwhile around here. By adding this filter you would automatically cut out a ton of crap.

@knyt you think the trolls on this game would shuffle off nicely to the 'troll forum'? Point of most trolls is to fuck with people. That forum would be useless

They wouldn't do it themselves. But it would effectively allow the moderators to get rid of Troll threads. The issue is that the mods aren't able to delete threads themselves, so Godfrey Elfwick/NIGHT/etc. still get to basically derail a bunch of other forums.

I have a relatively high boot rate. I wouldn't consider myself a troll.

Alternatively, create a forum with prereqs (<20% boot rate, at least 100 games played, etc.). That way trolls won't be able to do much unless they get better at the game, and the old fora would still remain as they are.

Or a Members-only Forum (only suggesting this because Fizzer's more likely to implement this- sorry FA :( ). Both would still be viewable by everyone, but you just can't post if you don't meet the prereqs.

Or just give trusted, active people like ChrisCMU more power. If this was implemented, keep it transparent to avoid corruption, put a Forum Mod Tag under ChrisCMU's name when he posts/replies etc like Fizzers "Warlight Creator" Tag.

That also works. Let mods delete posts.

The issue with this forum is that there are virtually no consequences for spam/trolling, except for those enforced by clans.

For example, my bootrate was 7% before I kept being invited to ladders without my consent.

I agree with Fallen Angel. Tired of ignoring idiots bumping useless threads to talk more shit no one cares about.

Thomas 633: Maybe you should go to
https://www.warlight.net/Ladder?Ladder=Seasonal

and click the "remove me from ladder" button. If you register for one season, your registration gets carried to the start of the next season.

Alternatively, create a forum with prereqs (<20% boot rate, at least 100 games played, etc.). That way trolls won't be able to do much unless they get better at the game, and the old fora would still remain as they are.

I think that it would be interesting option to create forum threads with prereq. You can read it, but you can't post in it, unless you meet the prereq. It could even use the same system as for creating games.

Other option would be to enable posting/creating new threads depending on your lvl (it's not a best filter, but it is a good compromise).
For example posting would be unlocable on lvl 5 or so. and every couple of lvls you should be able to create new threads more often (like 10th lvl 1 per week, 20th lvl 1 per day, 30th, 40th, 2, 3 per day or so..)
Only "help" forum should be excluded from restrictions.

I'm insulting about being on the same list as Harthacanute and Kellen, who have both talked about killing gays. :/

This is absurd. Most of my trolling, while sometimes disturbing, never seriously condones violence. Mine is meant to be for comedic purposes, and I don't actually hate or even dislike anyone who has ever argued with me on the forum. It's saddens me that I've been put on the same level of evil as someone who claimed the holocaust didn't happen.

Right, I've seen the problems and have put my solutions in place.

Most people are cowardly to not troll with their main accounts...

So... Up the unlockable level to be able to post on forums.

Also... I keep getting the feeling people want to design the forums to content their interesting in...

Only delete posts that are 100% obv to be trolly for e.g "gays should be killed" "blacks should be killed"...

But leave the posts where there is reason behind it... Sounds stupid but lets face it people are allowed to have an opinion if there is logical thinking.

My second solution, Let players rate each other reputation.

Out of 5 stars... If it has a continued rating of 1 star, the player should be banned.. Solves many problems...

So, I've once again saved the game! I will go and have Mcdonalds and be proud of what I did...

#RespectMyOpinion, Trolls should wear special dunce hats beside their names, I really believe this.
