Only problem I see on these forums are people who blatantly try to destroy the games reputation and those who use a million forum accounts to spam threads and spread negativity and have done it repeatedly throughout indev (hello all the threads that get moved to off topic).

All good things need to be moderated :)

Uneducated people confusing free speech and censorship with moderation and keeping an environment clean to allow discussions and where you actually can voice opinions. Not surprised :)

Try this in RL, go to any discussion, meeting, debate..whatever, where people discuss and voice opinions.
Scream there, be loud, insult people, run around yelling at everyone. What will happen you wannabe punks?

If you're talking about the threads you made... they're far from 'constructive'. You may as well just post memes at this point.

@ruckus98 has made plenty of constructive threads/posts, go check his post history.

Fact is every post criticising the game is met with Fanboys defending every aspect no matter what, even the dumbest of ideas. So at this point it just forces people into troll posts.

I've criticised the game plenty, I even basically said a few days ago that the game is never going to really last past 6 months regardless of changes/content.

Yet, somehow... I'm able to not post memes.. To not randomly insult every single person, to not post 3 useless threads a day. You're just as bad if not worse, so your whole opinion is irrelevant.

Weird huh? I can be critical without turning into a cunt. Not everyone that thinks you're worthless is a fanboy.

How arrogant do you have to be to believe that every person that calls you out on your bullshit has an ulterior motive/bias? Maybe.. Just maybe... You get called out because your posts have about as much worth as the hair on my arse.

RoA forums are better than New Dawn ones. They still have trolls there, but at least troll posts are intelligent and entertaining - subtle baits instead of all caps spam.

Dear @Ub3rgames

The main issue on these boards is not the lack of moderation, but lack of rules.
You need to clearly state what is not acceptable and what are the punishments.

You do not need to actively moderate to enforce those rules, but set a clear stance - if you post shit and someone reports it - you'll face the consequences.
Obviously, it'd be good for the rules to include a paragraph on wrong usage of Report function, and possible consequences for it.

And then make the forum rules post sticky in ALL subforums (I'm not sure how doable it is with your current forum software, some make it pretty easy).

go tell a cop to suck his dick.

Anyway, I would HATE to have the job of a darkfall dev. In original df people cried and bitched non stop at the devs and gave tasos so much shit I was wondering if I was the only one who actually felt lucky to have the game because 99% of mmorpgs are themeparks... and you dirty little shits didn't even thank AV for the very nice spell update.

Bitches and moans unfortunately are the only thing people are eating around here and its getting the most attention. Someone needs to wake up and realize there's more than just being a little shit with tears wiped on his tshirt. If you can't handle local banking you should probably get the fuck lost. If you think you have a great idea you should probably save it for your mom. Campaigning for change in a video game amongst the masses is a circle fuck popularity contest thats about as good as a dev bending over and asking how the community likes it best. The community doesn't know shit except how to play the game. They will ball up a big fat majority and circle jerk to death with it until your game is literally like every other game they've played before. They will point that finger at what they consider a problem when in reality they are literally just trying to get the dev to give a bj just for their special interests. This is darkfall and if you think you can huddle fuck a dev you need to go play a clone where they hug their players so hard they can brag about how community wise they are while players go around saying oh this dev listens so much yadda yadda. Again, the community knows how to play the game and will excel at it, and therefore occasionally know the game pretty well. But they rarely know the fix to any problems encountered and they just want to tweak the game so they can rest their dick on it. Everybody knows this and if I was a dev I wouldn't touch the forums with a ten foot pool just like AV did it. All a bunch of shits.

there should definitely be some kind of moderation, yes.
Constructive criticisms is one thing, and it surely helps the game grow since having only "it is all green and perfect" threads is not good for the game in the long term...but there is a huge difference between constructive criticisms.
Most importantly, even if you criticize the game, you also need to be willing to listen to other people opinions even when they don't coincide with yours,
Insulting them saying that they are "nd hiveminds" or  that they should "go back to roa", just because they have a different opinion is not constructive at all and, sadly, this is what the forums have become lately.
So, yes there is need for moderation to stop both "extremist" to insult each other and derail every single thread into a dnd vs roa fanboy battle.

These boards have become the Mos Eisley Spaceport of gaming forums.  New player interest and retention?   Not if they read these "constructive " threads.

So his old posts wouldn't.be touched but the new ones would. Where's the problem? Moderating isn't equal to banning ppl
