Re: DA perceptions

The trolling in GM from some has been ridiculous the last couple weeks particularly the one who has been mentioned in this thread. I've also noticed a lot of old threads being bumped by trolls recently.

Re: DA perceptions

Trolling is similar to sarcasm, so if done moderately, it can add entertainment and eyeball value to forums.

Trolling should also be distinguished from deliberate and habitual lying, manipulation, or misrepresentation.

Unless it's done with measure, enough humor and sufficient awareness of what is or isn't offensive or triggering to other people, it's actually a waste. If only a couple of people liked your post, or if the likes are outnumbered by the negative reactions, it was probably not that funny, and not that harmless.

Trolling is also one of the most tiring things for mods. It's bound to be reported, but if no rule is clearly broken, it can turn into a time wasting tough choice: do i address it and appear too strict (and annoy the author), or do I leave it, and give the reporter the feeling they are not being considered? So no, unless there's enough humor in it, and with no hidden agenda to drag some player or user, it's still toxic for the forum. Maybe not to everyone, but it still is.

Re: DA perceptions

What about if TF nominated folks to be banned.

Like if they achieved some threshold like 25, then the ban hammer comes down.

That'd certainly make GM more interesting.

I think it won't be easy to get to 25, but it may allow also trolls or haters to gang up on someone who doesn't deserve a ban. There are also a couple of pretty large fanbases out there who would be more likely to "vote out" a user inconvenient to them, while some of them will continue to drag players with smaller fanbases, who may not have the same "fire power" to kick out an inconvenient hater.

Also, how would you make the vote:
- open vote would mean you can see who voted you (or a friend of yours) out, which would aggravate the hate among users
- hidden vote would mean us, as mods/admins, won't know who cast those votes: for all we know it can be a lot of trolls, haters and worst of all, double accounts

I think instead of polls with a threshold of 25, you're better off with just 5 exposing reports, proving the guy is a troll or a flamer based on his/her activity here and there. As seen in this latest case, we didn't need more than 1-2 reports from some of you putting one of his posts against another, proving the guy's only intention was to spark controversy.

Re: DA perceptions

What was the deal with GloriaM9? It's was a DA but they mentioned me in a post that was deleted. I have no idea what he/she said.

(Sorry, I double posted this in the Missed and not so missed posters thread. I thought I deleted that one...)
