Bad forum moderation leading to a currupt community.
Extract from the FLS forum Rules:
1. Do not abuse staff members – We respect your opinions about our game, but we will not tolerate personal attacks against any member of staff. Please file a support ticket if you have an issue with any staff member.
2. No Flaming – While debate and discussion are encouraged, we will not tolerate rude or insulting posts, personal attacks or inflammatory posts of any kind.
3. No Trolling – Creating or posting in a thread for the sole purpose of harassing a user, stirring up hostilities, or derailing/hijacking a thread topic is not allowed.
1. Making a thread about bad forum moderation is not a personal attack against any particilar member of FLS Staff.
2. There are too many rude or insulting PERSONAL posts that are allowed to remain with no forum infraction given, others get them given for no reason at all.
3. Posting your opinion twice in a thread because the thread had been partly deleted is not trolling the thread.
Quite simply FLS does not moderate forums impartially to their own rules. As for others constantly saying that an experienced beta player knows nothing about the game or refers to their age is a personal attack & those posts are not moderated in any way.
Those wise guys do not even know that getting a Port Battle invitation & clicking on accept does not automatically guarantee you entry into the Port battle.
Yes my forum ban is temporary but I have quit Potbs due to being singled out & unfairly banned. Unless i get a permanent forum ban i will be back as a poster but not as a subscriber, some of you may disagree with that but I'm still paid up for another week & there are many posters that have un-subbed.
With reference to Danicias post here where she indicates she is 100% on some of VDD societies members side to the point of being quite vocal on it.
In reality it has gone beyond her being vocal to letting it effect her job as she no longer moderates the Defiant forum in an impartial way.
I transfered to Defiant nearly two month's ago with the aim to help increase populations; I too understood what some of these VDD players had been through on Invincible & see why they feel FLS owe them something. Rusty himself posted that he knew what they were having to put up with.
Sadly I could not see a reason to prolong it or hang on to it, it was not healthy for the new Defiant to go on about the past or harass other players in a personal way.
I became victim of it & was banned. So other than offering these guys a transfer what else can FLS do? they are already promoting it with advertising & they still go on.
I'm not sure they will ever get over it but it is not their place to take it out on other players that currently enjoy Defiant. It's long overdue that they & Danicia either let it go or go themselves. I can not see how it helps server populations or FLS as they are today.
Get over it or go in my opinion.
The implications of what Danicia & Rhaegar are doing are very bad as no good or benefit to Potbs or FLS will come of it so I hope that in future they will have a change of attitude & abide by their own rules.
Did I ragequit? not really I've just had enough of Potbs for the time being, it was fun while it lasted.
