dealing with PvP'ers is dealing with massive egos. and the suck-ups, sycophants and hangers-on to the ones they deem the 'leetist' no different really than a high school clique of jocks and their entourage. highly doubtful mods will do anything about as it's also an 'old boy' network going on here. they're not going to step in a censure people they have known for a long time, play with, in a fleet with or whatever.

biggest issue in general, is without that censure, new players...which every mmo needs, once they meet that wall of trolls won't bother with the forums and maybe the game thereafter. saw another game go down that route, mods that had been around for years letting trolls they knew run rampant...community steadily declined and then the player base.

after it reached it's height, and stayed there for 5 months...company finally stepped in and got new mods, replaced all the old ones. the trolling ended and the forums and the game itself started recovering. best bet is just notify PWE. skip cryptic or the mods here.

Well, since the dissapearence of the "report" button, it has become very easy for the more... annoying people to mess around.

People simply dont know, and don't want to be bothered with finding the appropriate page on the PWE site, and finding the information, to then finally write a mail, that there is a good chance that will be ignored.

case in point, this was a topic all it's own, now it's not. as i said, expect mods to do everything they can to hide things. they've been here too long. notifying cryptic or the mods useless, contact pwe directly. there was no reason to move it into this catagory...but it does bury it rather well

Yea I was just wondering... This topic had nothing to do with the "now" OP... why was it hidden here?

^^^ this. We don't have any visibility into PWE's ticket system. We see what we see when we're reading, and nothing else. Tickets you open go to PWE, and we never even hear they happened. Among other things, this means that if you want to complain about actions one of us takes, you have no fear that we'll see it or ever know it was you. I personally think that protection of your rights outweighs any inconvenience caused by having us out of the loop.

We don't work for PWE, and they can't give us assignments or they'd run afoul of labor laws. We're just volunteers who have a little extra power in our daily reading, that can be taken away at any time without notice or recourse.

Speaking for myself, I disagree with the notion that my mandate is to help PWE bury threads or that I'd ever hide a thread just because I don't like it.

My personal mandate is to enforce Forum Rules, promote a Community that people enjoy being a part of, and help to improve and focus feedback. Every moderation I do is to that end, to the best of my ability.

That said, syberghost is right... I'm not paid to do this and my time and energy is limited. If I see it, if I have time, and if I have the proper (fair) mindset while I'm reviewing a post or a thread, I'll moderate it.

As to why the thread was merged... I didn't do it and don't have an explanation. It's not unreasonable, given the topic.

I think PWE might be open to bringing back the in-forum "Report Post" functionality. It would certainly help us find things that need moderation before they get too far gone.

Thanks for the reply.

Well, then how to best report at least the most extreme stuff to the moderators? I mean, we don't want to degrade certain subforums into constant flamefests, do we?

Report them to PWE. BranFlakes will see it. Also, next time there's a call for new mods, perhaps some PvP regulars would care to apply...
