# 1 Atari Closes Community Chat
02-28-2010, 01:28 PM
Well here is the dead horse and I am going to beat it.

(I edited out my link due to this forum rule)Cross Linking
Posts and/or private messages that, in any manner whether directly or indirectly, contain links to threads from other forums may be subject to an infraction


I cannot argue with wanting to stop forum violations and keep things friendly, but this does kinda add fuel to the "they are trying to silence us" cryers in regards to all this free time controversy.

I am not trying to get my account suspended. Even though this is from another Atari owned site I want to be very careful here.

Posted from that link:

Hello everyone,

You may have noticed some changes have been made around here today. After much discussion and deliberation with senior staff here at Atari the decision has been made to close the community chat forum. As of late the community chat has been a forum full of controversy and repeated violations of the forums terms of use. This decision was not made to punish any individuals or groups for past or current actions, but was more focused on the growing concerns regarding the more mature nature of some of the posts made within this community.

Our aim in taking this action is not to drive our users away from this forum as we value all our community members, but we do wish to make this a friendlier environment where anyone can join in discussions without worry.

In regards to moderators within this forum, that will be discussed with our staff and then handled appropriately. If you wish to comment on this topic or have concerns feel free to send me a pm and I will do what I can to field your questions.

Please be assured that this decision was made in the best interest of the overall community and we look forward to your continued participation here on the Atari.com forums!

Thank you,

Implausible
Atari Inc. Staff

WOW, people were acting out their anger in Atari's chat too?

This might have a bigger fallout radius then I thought.

I doubt it - it's the same small group of people with nothing better to do.

If that were true, wouldn't it be easier and more productive to ban this small group?

You realize that this is spread all over the internet. It is not a small group of people. Well that depends on what you mean by small of course.

Keep telling yourself that and one day you might even belive it yourself.
