for civil game discussion and information. Right now is a delicate time for such a huge undertaking as is a MMO, and I have no problems with the servers going down occasionally.

I realize this is a temporary thing.

What I can't stand anymore is the massive negativity and trolling going on this forum now. Cryptic...your forum is a seething pit. Because the forum is so negative, it only drives away people looking for a discussion on game elements. Which means...most will end up going somewhere else for a constructive discussion on what you have created.

Right now, I believe you are doing your best to make STO as successful as possible give the time and resources you have. But you are setting a precedent as to why type of forum you will have for fans of your creation, and by allowing it to remain full of so many negative threads, you are hurting your fans and yourself.

500 posts of "OMG !@#$!#@$!@#$ servers down again OMG DOWNTIME OMG I HATE THIS GAME" do nothing. Constructive, polite discussion is so much for helpful for the game as a whole.

Please, Cryptic, tighten up on your moderation.

This is a lesson for Cryptic. If you cannot provide basic service then you cannot expect your community to act rationally. There's not much else to say on this. Get the game working and the spam will stop.

They really need to take control of the forums, it's getting ridiculous.

If you're looking for a civil Star Trek forum, then good luck.

Never, and I mean never use the game's offical forums for your "good" discussions. They are full of the 10% of crazies (me included) and to ....well open. Not everyone in the devloper forums is evil......but better safe then sorry.

Kidding...sorta...

Your post, albeit calm and collected, is yet another request/demand upon cryptic.

Personally I also see little point ranting on the forum however I can also see the moaners pov. This isn't some freebie beta, this is now the paid for live game. The head start is provided purely to entice potential subscribers into purchasing the game via a pre-order. For cryptic, every life-time subscriber, every pre-order is money in the bank so please forgive those less versed than yourself who in their anger and frustration might resort to more colourful tones.

Cryptic HAVE dropped the ball here and I personally think they are well aware of this, and rather than end up getting into a back and forth with individual users on the forums they are getting on with fixing the problem. It's going to be easier to fix it and mop up the remaining mess afterwards than try to deal with it whilst the game doesn't work.

tl:dr, don't judge the moaners, they are justified and are doing little harm venting it here.
