    After reading this thread, what I see is a clique of toxic snowflakes reporting people.  They cant take people disagreeing with them.

    Sure I agree reporting people if they are racist, or if they are being constantly harrassed.

    Yeah lets not pretend to believe in their fake outrage or them supposedly taking offense.  This is about power, its about suppressing opposing viewpoints.

    Their is someone on this site that I get into heated arguments with lately.  A lot of subjects we agree on, sometimes we have passionate disagreements that probably go over the line according to these snowflakes.  I never reported them, and respect them for not reported me.  I am adult enough to realize that sometimes people say things in a passionate argument. (to this person I hope there is no hard feelings)

    Reporting should be reserved for very serious situations.  I think these Mods should start banning people who use the report button too many times.  Obviously these snowflakes cant handle themselves in a sandbox with others without getting their precious feelings hurt.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the Mod who is banning people is either Friends or Related to one of the clique doing the reporting.

    Yeah this will probably be my last post, I am sure I will be banned because some toxic Snowflake took offense.  Its fine, just reading this thread makes me sick, I don't want to support a site that bans opposing viewpoints for minor offenses.  So its time for me to take a break for a few years.

    You really think people are getting reported for posting mean things about your game or is it because they have been mounting a sustained campaign on every thread about the game and posting the same drivel over and over. That is not insecurity that is good sense on the part of the person who makes the report.
    The times I have been reported have honestly been for completely trivial things. Any time I say something even slightly racy or negative about a game or criticize people's reaction to I seem to get reported. Its a bit ridiculous imo.

    I think the last time I got reported I said something like "you are all fucking cry babies" about people complaining about the BG3 beta launch. Another time I said the combat in FF14 "sucks" or something to that effect and got reported.

    I don't know if its insecurity or just that some people are assholes, but I certainly don't think its "good sense on the person that makes the report" in many cases.

    Not sure who you're talking about from this thread, however I never reported anyone but bots (and one guy who posted pron) on this forum.

    With that said, I disagree with the notion of ignoring people that have toxic behaviours. This is a forum to have civilized discussions, not a place to insult and demean others. If people where to be able to do whatever they pleased with no repercussion, this forum would be long dead.

    If one can't express themselves without resorting to insults, I see no point in being here. Also, I'm fairly positive false reporters get warnings so you can't abuse the system.

    Weird how eager people are to be tattle tales these days.  I’m all for rules to maintain civil discussion and to curb digression into ad hominem nonsense.  That said, I’ve been on the internet long enough to know that it’s mostly not about maintaining civility.  It’s totally about scoring imaginary points and dunking on someone by ‘punishing’ them. 

    At least I’m sure you’ve solidly convinced yourselves it’s for a righteous cause. Can’t wait for your tiktok videos!  Real heroes click report buttons!  

    I thought like that at one point. Let me explain how they should make you feel pretty damn good about yourself.

    I use to think it was very odd to strive to be a self-appointed internet janitor. But, over time, I discovered that it's a deeper issue *cough* than that.

    Those types of report abuse, are people with no power or control over their own lives. It makes them feel significant, even only if it's just a self-appointed hall monitor on the internet. Seems miserable. I'm more concerned for all of their cats.

    Further, this site also enables report abuse, so that's why they stay here. They can't abuse the reporting system on the modern, more popular game sites. They are stuck here. Lording over the remaining, dwindling community. The problem with their line of thinking, their sense of power can all be taken from them, simply by closing the browser. Sad.

    The other major group, is just made up of those conceding defeat to an argument. Can't beat your unpopular opinion, they'll have no other choice than to have someone else silence you. Congrats! It means that you won.

    I wear it as a badge of honor. Getting reported gives me satisfaction. It confirms my existence to be significant and my opinions, valid. It feels good.

    Stop getting yourself temporarily banned, stop deleting your entire post history...we need posters not guys with a short term jail sentence or self imposed  "burn notice".

    I disagree.

    The burden is not on community members to keep this site lively. It's the owner's.

    I know this site isn't doing so well compared to the modern, popular sites. You would think the guy that sold his own airplane would be more involved with his business. 
    https://www.controller.com/listings/for-sale/cyber-creations-inc-dot/aircraft?accountcrmid=16975743

    As a small business owner myself, if I had to sell off my personal assets, I wouldn't even ask questions. I'd TERMINATE everyone. I'd rethink my business model and make some serious changes. Because THAT is the kind of power and control I have in my life.

    Also, if I found that I was paying someone that was running their own side project, while neglecting mine, I'd sue for every shekel they had in a New York minute. "End of discussion." (Right, buddy?)

    This site could have been so much more. It's been left behind in the dust by Twitch and Reddit when MMORPG.com could have been Twitch, Reddit, host add-on downloads, and a Gaming News site. Poor mismanagement mostly due to complacency and incompetence.

    The other thing is, they can't even do their out-of-date business model right. I lurk here from time to time just in case an ACTUAL Gaming News story pops up. It's been terrible and reposting sub-Reddit threads here, is not "news" or "game journalism".

    The community getting themselves banned is not to blame. It's driving them away while others are losing interest to places that have better content and better treatment.

    Quick side note, there are no RoC when one can pick and choose who or who NOT to enforce them upon. Showing bias is disgustingly unprofessional, being paid to do that job or not. People will never respect that kind of "e-authority".

    Maybe get rid of the DDD game advertisements and get those AAA games advertising dollars back.


    In closing, Your Honor:


    People with a one-track mind will get mad and call this negative or offensive or whatever the current 1st-world problems are. But, my intent is to prompt some kind of change and inner thought. Or don't. Just keep fading away out of relevancy.  *shrugs*

    Anyways, guess this is it for good ol' Norsegod. I'm sure I'll be validated again shortly. 

    Have a great weekend everybody, it's beautiful out. And if you're one of those who don't have permission to leave your own home, well, I guess keep doing whatever the statistics being reported that you've been doing during "lockdown" or whatever they're making you do. :( (no idea, we didn't have any of that mask/lockdown stuff here)

    New Kano was 100% better than old Trion Kano cause his strings were cut and could now speak freely about games which IMO was a gift to this site. What many people here with zero game industry knowledge label as "negative" was actually factual information that could be backed up with proof which he provided or even a quick Google search could. The point is that he was promoting conversation based on actual knowledge with proof and not 100% feelings and fanboi'ism. When you have to constantly argue with people about basic game design stuff then have members here hate you/try to get you banned for posting provable truth why continue? I wouldn't doubt if he just had enough cause there are certain individuals here according to their own words "play both sides" and trying to have any type of reasonable/factual conversation with people just trying to pad their point count while trying to shut others up through tricks(get ppl riled up so they write the wrong things that get them banned) and misinformation + agendas ends up almost being not worth the trouble.

    In the end it's our loss that he's gone and not the other way around IMO.

    He was fairly negative of late, but he often also made some good points, wrote well, and seemed like a nice person. Personally, I find it a loss if he has deleted his account again.

    Besides adbots, the only two I can really recall getting recent timeouts (temp bans) were delete and remsleep... maybe jean_luc_picard once (not sure).  It's not like ban hammers are flying everywhere.

    Even then, they are hardly bans.  Am I wrong?

    Apparently there is some color coded system for posters as they become veterans.  I only post and view from my mobile, so I don't see it.

    A lot people need to learn about the "johari window". 

    1. Open/self-area or arena – Here the information about the person his attitudes, behaviour, emotions, feelings, skills and views will be known by the person as well as by others. 

    2. Blind self or blind spot – Information about yourselves that others know in a group but you will be unaware of it. 

    3. Hidden area or façade – Information that is known to you but will be kept unknown from others. 

    4. Unknown area – The Information which are unaware to yourselves as well as others. 


    Blind self, seems to be the majority for forum posting.

    Is it Festivus already and no one told me?

    It seems that Rem's virtual suicide is seen by some randoms as an opportunity to point out why everyone here except them sucks lol.

    So here's my contribution:

    Before he turned into a bitter poster, I agree. He did provide sometimes insightful content. Then, he suddenly became increasingly negative about pretty much anything. I often didn't even read his posts anymore, as he was becoming Wizardry 2.0. 

    I just don't see the point in going in every thread were people are discussing a game they enjoy to say: "it sucks". It felt like a cry for attention at that point. Then deleting your account AGAIN because of getting a temp ban? That's pretty childish imo.

    Anyone but me a tab bit perturbed that Rem was outed as Kano.

    I feel that ruined the whole reason to take a new identity to start with, and IMHO, if I ha went through the effort make a fresh start account and people outed me as my old account, I would delete it as well, as it no longer serves the purpose I made it for, and maybe try again (Maybe not) and the third time around, make sure that I didn't tell any of the yahoo's that outed me, who I really was.

    Just saying on that one.

    He didn't make a new account. He used his alt account that he created a few years ago. An account he admitted creating to circumvent a ban back at that time.

    If he truly wanted a fresh start as you say, you create a new account not use his old alt account.

    1) he always tried to deny the connection, but people here dug out his original admission to creating the alt acct back around 2014, and as I always tell my children, the internet never forgets.

    2) Report = Flag button at top of your screen.

    3) just realized the ignore button is not visible on my phone web browser, probably why I forgot about / never use it.

    Pro tip, if you really want a fresh start you'll need to make a conscience decision to change your posting style / personality, especially if you have been a prolific poster.

    He made no effort at all, except for being extra cranky it was obvious to many the two were the same person even when he tried to deny it.

    I actually run multiple reddit accounts with very different personas for "reasons," not the least being to evade over zealous moderation.
