don't feel it's being used enough or for the right reasons.

There are people using the forums for negative posts towards others and it's just relentless at times. Anywhere a remark can be made it will be made. It's both members and f2p. They have never been disciplined through the ban procedure even though it's continuous negative behavour. I feel their negative posting doesn't stop because they aren't going to miss out on anything, they are not getting banned for there continuous negative posts.

The moderators pretty much keep on top of it by hiding the posts dependent on who's moderating at the time, if any moderators are on, if it's reported or if they feel it should be hidden (it all should be hidden in my eyes), any negative posts should not be tolerated. But this form of moderation is not getting through to some people, the negative posts still come regularly, I feel it need to go up to the next step, which is temp ban and if they still haven't learned further down the track perm ban.

These forums can be a really pleasant place and it should be for all that use it, it shouldn't matter if you don't agree, don't like the post or person. If it was moderated correctly, you would get rid of a lot of the negative posts, as I am sure no one wants to be perm ban.

I haven't asked once for moderators to moderate outside of the rules. When the same group of people constantly are posting negative, hurtful remarks time and time again and nearly day in and day out something needs to be done, as hiding posts are clearly not working.

perhaps this group of negative posters aren't as harmful as you believe which is why they're still able to post. :)

Not to the people who it ain't aimed at. People don't care, simple as that, it's not their family, it's not their friends - end of the matter.

i think over-sensitivity to minor things is the real issue here.

The forums shouldn't be used for bullying tactics and throwing insults to those you don't like. I am not talking about disagreements or difference of opinion, I am talking about nearly on a daily bases using the forums as a tool to hurt another individual.

perhaps if you don't like the system in place just walk away? there are no signs of things changing in terms of moderation. I've heard reddit is popular these days.

if you feel like you're getting bullied and the situation isn't improving it may be best to walk away. it isn't healthy to keep going back to the bully and asking for more.

Why should a handful of individuals dictate where one posts?

Please keep the discussion about RSOF!

This isn't asking for strict moderation, far from it. I feel hiding distasteful posts isn't deterring the same people from posting more of the same kind of distasteful posts. Bringing it up a notch to temp or perm ban may put a stop to it.

Having lax rules should not mean hurtful, trolling, bullying type posts should be apart of the forums, certain posts still need to be moderated, and if these posters don't stop with their posting style towards certain individuals then it needs to be moderated accordingly. Bullying type posts need to stop in these forums, and if that means using the ban hammer, so be it <- this is not taking away the lax rules, it's actually helping with the lax rules by removing hurtful, bully troll posts would bring with it a relaxed forum as there would be less negativity in threads.

The English and german soldiers put their differences aside and had a game of footy on fuckin christmas day once, if they can, we fuckin can!

Much love

Scouse - Fuckin sants!!!

Why don't you ask the moderators to unhide the post in the Christmas Advent-ure Forum that was hidden? Why don't you ask the moderator to unhide the post in Forum Changes Thread? These are just three of many, many negative posts that certain forumers find around the forums.

Yes it's Christmas time, but these trolls don't stop any time of year it goes on and on for some chosen individuals.

Can a moderator please unhide the post in Adventure forum

And

Might want to ask on forum help if genuine.


I am 100% genuine as long as these said posts confer with all rsof rulings.

Also, i am deadly serious about your socks!!!!

So you would want to view said posts?

Why?

To see if I am telling the truth??

Also, why is it okay to be nasty outside of Christmas? Why is Christmas so important to be nice for a few weeks? Why is nasty, negative, trolling, bullying posts okay with you?

I thought this thread was about forum bans, not asking/discussing to see hidden posts.

yes, you are correct it is about bans :)

I know they won't be unhidden, it was a figure of speech, seeing the type of post that individuals have to put up with on a near-daily basis.

Nasty negative bullying and trolling is not okay with me at all but if people can't forgive and forget at christmas time "even for just a week or even a day" what chance have we got on a regular day/week in the middle of April.

Then and only then, after me trying and trying to spread peace and love and failing, then i can realize that the rsof and it's users are a waste of time even trying to help and make the forums a better place and i will walk away and leave you all to shout and scream at each other like the little lost cause's many will become.

And then you will all have lost the greatest forum gift you ever received........

ME!!!!!

Much love

Scouse - Everyone loves a tryer

Scouse, those two posts I asked you to see if you can unhide were done at the RSOF Christmas time - the problem is it doesn't stop. This thread is not about forgiveness - I am sure people will forgive once it actually stops. Asking for something to stop just over the Christmas time is a kick in the teeth, it needs to stop full stop! This has been happening for years and years - it needs to end, the trolls that leave these type posts need to give it up already. I am not talking about arguments and disagreements that break out at times, you can't avoid that, what I am talking about is little one posts that are usually hurtful, negative, belittling, can even full under bullying.

Being negative isn't bannable, nor should it be.

What's important is:
a. Is it constructive?
b. Is it relevant?
c. Is it posted without flaming?

Something can be negative and yet contribute to the thread. If that's not what you mean, then please use more specific language in your post.

As I started in the opening post, most of the posts are being hidden, they are not appropriate - what this thread is about is these posters constantly use negative, hurtful, bully type posts to target an individual user, the hiding of these posts are not deterring these people. I feel taking it up to the next step, which would be temp or perm ban. Hopefully it will stop before perm ban.

I think it's possible certain rulebreakers and trolls pay fmods in game gp for fmod to be lenient or overlook their rulebreaking

I don't believe this happens- but please stay on topic.

I don't believe negative makes sense in that context.

If by negative you mean "malicious" posts, then yes I agree 100%

It can be malicious, but not always.
