I've always liked the lax moderation of the forum as it has given some interesting discussions but nowadays as the forum has gotten bigger I feel there needs to be some clear moderation presence or more rules.The forum has seriously gone downhill. Something needs to be done Fizzer

1.WarLight's normal rules apply to the forum, such as being respectful to other players at all times, not spamming, not impersonating other players, etc.

2.Don't use the forum for reporting other players breaking the rules. You should report them by using the in-game Report button.

3.Don't bump a thread just for the sake of bumping. Posting a message just containing "bump" will just be deleted. If you have a valid reason to bump a thread, explain what it is.

4.Don't re-create locked threads. The point of locking a thread is to end the discussion since it wasn't appropriate for the forum. Threads that try to circumvent a lock by creating a new thread to continue the discussion will find their threads deleted.

5.Don't use obnoxious subject lines, such as all-caps or excessive length.

6.Don't spam links to third-party sites.

Those rules are broken on a daily, if not (bi)hourly basis. In my opinion there is a clear need for some more moderation. Fizzer has always been lenient, but I am afraid some players have taken too much advantage of that.

More moderation is definitely needed. At very least, a report post button would be nice.

On basically every visit to the forums, I find soft porn, vulgar images, or attacks on users/clans/minorities.

Master, I think an actual moderation staff of 5-7 people would do a much better job, and actually solve the problem, rather than just hiding it. I support this idea.

@OnlyThePie a staff of 5-7, For a free site paying a staff of 5-7 wage, I think the option you are presenting is not even a option for Fizzer to even think seiriously about

5-7 people is rather overkill.
There are also plenty of people who are loyal to Fizzer and WarLight who would do it for free.

A couple of people would do. Including Fizzer and Mercer that would make 4. I can't see a forum of this size needing more for a while.

Please don't let Thomas do it.

Instead hire players willing to do it for free, that are well respected throughout the community.

Could it be a monthly vote ? If it is a perpetual full-time moderation, there is always some people that will leave without warning. Replacing moderators is a complicated process.

It should be entirely Fizzer's (or Mercer's) choice.

@ [GRID] OnlyThePie

I sent Mercer a pm about this issue, and his response was that while it does concern him, he cannot promise any improvements in the next 6 months.

Hence the attempt at a temporary fix.


But if you think you can convince Mercer/Fizzer, then I'm all for it :)

I mailed Fizzer a few days earlier, and he said that it was people heres responsibility to use the report player function.

I would agree with more (powerful/active) mods though.

You forum spam and are disliked by a fair amount of the community.

There's a higher chance of me becoming a Mod and we all know hell would have to freeze over first.

I said 5-7, assuming the people were simply loyal website users who were REVIEWED BY FIZZER/MERCER. NOT VOTED, Voting is an incredibly easy way for people unfit for the position, but capable of buying votes and/or using clan support to win things. I think most of us wouldn't make it, simply because we're so annoying. If we had Mods, I want damn well to be sure they're good.

You are all moderators. If you see something against the rules, you should report it using the Report button on their profile.

WarLight also has actual moderators that review reports. Every report gets looked at. However, moderators can't do anything when something isn't against the rules. If you see a post that isn't against the rules but you still think it shouldn't be allowed, you need to suggest modifications to the rules that would outlaw it.

When I browse the forums, I find rule-breaking is quite rare. The biggest problem is just low-value content. That is, people posting things that are uninteresting and don't add to the conversation. You can't fix that problem with moderators, since there is no way to design a rule that forbids people from posting things that are uninteresting since everyone has a different definition of what that is.

The real solution to this problem is a voting system, like reddit/slashdot/etc. The high value content gets upvoted and the low-value content gets hidden from view by default.
