Second, why should they read the stuff in the forums? All STO forum posts can be broken down along the following lines:

24% of all posts: Nerd rage rants over the inclusion/exclusion of THE ONE THING that they must or must not have in the game. These posts usually conclude with a whiney, self serving summation about how stupid Cryptic must be for not already having THAT ONE THING in the game already.

24% of all posts: Canon Nazi (cannon? I can't keep it straight) posts about how stupid Cryptic is for having XYZ class ships in the game. Or how XYZ character is really dead or alive. Or why can't Cryptic make the characters look right and so on.

24% of all posts: C-store rants about how stupid Cryptic is for actually selling stuff in the C-store and not running their business as if it was a computer based soup kitchen providing new ships and toys to rubber pointie-ear wearing, basement dwelling Star Trek uber nerds. (seriously guys - its a business. Cryptic should be able to make money. And before you ask, No - your subscription fee doesn't mean everything else should be free.)

24% of all posts: Nerf XYZ power so that PvP doesn't suck for me posts. These usually are written from the sole perspective of a player who just had their butt handed to them in a PvP match and usually end with the familiar "Cryptic is stupid for not balancing this power" theme.

4% of all posts: Actual useful, constructive feedback or questions not prefaced with a "do you even bother" snark in the opening line.

well lets see, your takin out of your rear end, devs dont need to read posts for them to be deleted, id love to know where you get your % from and welcome to ignore.

Two things ...

1- You're not very nice to your girlfriend. That kind of sucks.
2- There's a difference between moderator and dev. The poster may rightfully fear moderation, but still ask the question of devs. To be more explicit, Infoninja can read this forum up down and sideways ... but Infoninja isn't a dev.

wow...over-react much? If you look above your post, you'll see I freely admit my numbers were made up. My original reply was meant to point out that whining "do the devs even..." isn't a "nice" way to draw any dev concern to your issue. I thought I'd poke a little fun at the fact that almost every forum thread here turns into a flame fest along the lines i mentioned so why would anyone from Cryptic with a vote in game development care to read them?

But if you need to remove yourself from the discussion, go ahead. I'm sure someone will miss you. Not me. But someone.

I guess I can pull another fake stat for the list....

10% of posts: made by hypersensitive players who appear to be in desperate need of a hug.

I believe that .. what i wouldnt believe is you actually have a girlfriend (other than pam & her sisters)
giving you the 5 finger shuffle.

I was putting it as nicely as i feel i can given the way the mod/admins on this forum are.
there jumped up little ****s that need a reality check.

its the same old same old give a little geek some power & it goes to there heads there little adolfs.

All i want to know is if the devs actualy read posts in this part of the forum now p***off back to your feddybear section please.
I have noticed the only people that flame the klingon players for wanting questions answered about the lies
we have been told about our ships & content are the feddybear trolls that come along here.

Wow...looks like someone else needs a hug.

You keep making my point for me. You started off whiney and now have moved into insulting. In one post you have called people little *****s, little geeks, little adolfs, and feddiebears.

I tried a klingon toon for a while. the PvP queues were jacked and then I didn't have anything to do with the guy so I lost interest. I sort of get where you are coming from (except for all the angst). But, if the hundreds of polite, constructive posts pointing out that being a klingon sucks at this point in the game hasn't changed the fact that it sucks, why do you think a whiny, rude post will accomplish anything? And why get tweaked when you get called for it? If you are going to be rude, have the sack to own your rudeness.

Maybe if you guys tried complaining with your money and not your keyboards you might accomplish something. If you don't think the "little adolfs" care about your concerns, quit giving them money every month until they address your concerns. If you are lifetime, you may be out of luck. Guess you could ask for a prorated refund? If enough klingon players did that, I'm pretty sure you'd be getting what you want and you'd get it pretty fast, too.

Anyway, hope you get what you ask for before your head explodes from containing all the rage.

Hence, why you should then work harder on the entertaining part.

and why would you want to hug BBzMadDog? His avatar scares me.

I actually think his avatar is cool.

I'm sure he is a wonderful human being and that probably most of the time he isn't rude. I'm not missing with him per se, I'm just a bit tired of seeing posts where people start off by being rude and whiney and think Cryptic owes them some sort of special consideration. Paying a subscription fee means you can register your opinion in the forums or send tickets or email Cryptic and hope the right people pay attention. It isn't a license to be a jerk when you feel they don't pay enough attention to your problem. The fact that it is an ongoing problem is frustrating, but that still doesn't entitle people to be jerks about it.

So I called him on being whiney and rude and he whipped out the klingons-are-an-oppressed-minority-in-STO card and resorted to name calling. I think klingons are getting a raw deal, too. But the chip on the shoulder and general jerkiness doesn't get anything fixed any more than the whiney post. Until a decent sized chunk of the klingon faction is willing to withhold sub fees until their problems are addressed, I think they are out of luck. No one seems to do that though. Seems like they just post rude and whiney crap and get all bent went they are called on it.

I have noticed something, ever since Obama took office nobody has tried playing the race card IRL (at least where I live) after STO came out Klingon players can be broken down into 2 categories

1st are the ones that play the Klingon Race E-card and never shut up.

2nd are the Klingon player that actually use their brains when they play and no matter what Cryptic has done to Nerf them they still think up ways to come out on top.

But that is just something Ive observed on the forums since the game started for real.
