These are the CU forums, are they not?

I thought they were, but I see alot of people here saying they are "annoyed" with all the posts about CU on MMORPG.com

 

Just sayin', these are forums, no? If you think people posting about CU is annoying, then stop coming to MMORPG.com's CU Forums and go to the others. It's pretty simple.

 

I wouldn't go to SWTOR's forums and bitch about people talking about SWTOR.

I wouldn't go to LOTRO's forums and say people are talking about it to much.

I wouldn't go to TESO's forums and tell people to stop talking about a game that's not out yet.

Ect.

Help get Camelot Unchained made, a old-school MMORPG, with no hand holding!

    if they would just put in a feature that allows you to block any game where you would not see any threads from that games subforum in the recent forum activity SOOOOOO many issues on this website would be alleviated

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall. If I buy a candy bar at a store, oftentimes, I will drop it... so that it achieves its maximum flavor potential. --Mitch Hedberg

    Is there a difference between the OP's complaining about other people making posts in the public forums, and the people he's referring to making complaint posts in the forums?

    All of my posts are either intelligent, thought provoking, funny, satirical, sarcastic or intentionally disrespectful. Take your pick.

    I get banned in the forums for games I love, so lets see if I do better in the forums for games I hate.

    I enjoy the serenity of not caring what your opinion is.

    Nope.  Considering the amount of locked threads in the last day with conversations along this line, I don't see this having a lengthy existence either.

    Yes, he is saying that the CU forums are the place to talk about CU, while the others are people that come to the CU forums and tell people to stop talking about CU. 

    Edit:  I don't think he was referring to posts about CU in the general forums.  He was referring to posts against CU posts that are appearing in the CU forums if I understood him correctly.

    Aerowyn nailed it. The problem is largely that a lot of people
    like to scan recent threads, and they have been getting buried
    by CU threads. A filter would help.

    Also, some of us here on the CU forum have been getting a
    bit obnoxious in both expressing our enthusiasm and
    overreacting to trolls, and the end result is being rude to
    honest criticism.

    +1 and there are games subforums I'd block, CU being one of them.

    I agree, we should continue to discuss camelot unchained in the camelot unchained subsections of the mmorpg forums.

     

    The issue has been certain people that don't browse certain specific games on mmorpg, they go by the "feed" of all new threads.

     

    They keep seeing "more than average" threads on camelot unchained, and for whatever reason that bothers them so much, that they come to the CU subsection of the forums to tell us to stop posting so much about CU in the CU forums lol.

     

    Are they for real though? Games go through different times of excitement/frenzy levels, and this happens to be Cu's because of the CURRENT kickstarter. Plenty of other games have gone through their excitement/frenzy periods. I suppose the same culprits probably bashed all those games' posts because there were "too many" in their subjective opinions.

     

    Just keep reporting them, and hopefully the same culprits will learn their lesson.

    The feed is there to show people what the hot topics are and what people are currently discussing. You can't get mad because the current topics aren't what you want them to be. It's like me turning on ESPN and seeing them talk about the championship game from the previous night, and then me getting mad that they aren't talking about my local team's practice yesterday. CU is a hot topic because the Kickstarter is ongoing. It's not hard to browse to the forum of a game you do want to talk about and seeing what threads are recent there.

    Thankfully there is one block function that works perfectly :)

    Expresso gave me a Hearthstone beta key.....I'm so happy :)

    i suggested this feature awhile back and everyone loved the idea.. doesn't seem to be anything they will add though..

    I angered the clerk in a clothing shop today. She asked me what size I was and I said actual, because I am not to scale. I like vending machines 'cause snacks are better when they fall.

    Well count me in as a supporter, I too at times have felt a certain title has dominated the recent threads feed and wished I could block it from view.

    Licensing issues with advertisers perhaps?

  • TheLizardbonesTheLizardbones Arkham, VAPosts: 10,910Member

    If you're going to click a link for "Recent" threads, or a link for "Active" threads, and the CU threads are the most recent and the most active, then that's what people are talking about.

    I know I shouldn't be surprised, but really. Complaining that you actually got what people were talking about when you asked what people were talking about? Get over yourselves already.

    ** ** ** **

    On the other side of it, if you're in a forum on a site with public access, and you're accessing the site for free, you don't get to whine about the public commenting in the forum.

    I can not remember winning or losing a single debate on the internet.

     i dunno perhaps although not sure why all the advertising is on the frontpage and banners all around.. not sure how allowing a feature to block specific games subforums would effect that in anyway..

    So your answer to these complaints was to start  another thread and troll for more complaints?
  • AmanaAmana New York, NYPosts: 2,581Moderator Uncommon

    Repost from another similar thread today:

     

    We move relevant threads made outside of this forum into this forum. If they are Kickstarter discussions, they're generally locked and redirected to the Kickstarter discussion sticky: http://www.mmorpg.com/discussion2.cfm/thread/381204/Camelot-Unchained-Kickstarter-Progress-Discussion.html

    Please do report threads and things that involve hijacks or threads about CU or the KS campaign that are outside this forum or excessive. Mere disagreement or expressing doubts about the game funding are not grounds for reporting. We are aware that this forum has a ton of activity right now and we are here daily.

    Many of the complaints seem to revolve around the recent posts page. Remember that you can also navigate forums via the "forums" tab, the games list, and the dropdown on the top right and the sidebar on the left - select a game and then once on that page, hit forums.

    And this is being locked not because of some form of censorship. But this is for discussion about the game not a meta discussion of the subforum. 

    To give feedback on moderation, contact community@mmorpg.com

    I agree! However, we took your feedback to the team, discussed it, and didn't agree (as a team) on it at the time. I have since brought it back up again and we are now investigating doing this. There may be some technical reasons we would be unable to do it, but we aren't opposed to implementing it if those hurdles can be jumped.
