There are a lot of not-nice people hiding behind keyboards
Not just in game play. Same applies to the forums. Those people should be called out when they post and put to task.
Seems like no one wants to do that. Fear of moderation prevents decent people from doing the right thing - IMHO
Not just moderation. I have seen nice players banned from the forums for calling out jerks,
^^^ that is correct. Refer my earlier post on this topic. It all boils down to which Mod is on duty that day.
Moderators have done very little to no moderating all of these years . The act of placing one on moderation or completely banning is the only moderation they practice . And doesn't even scratch the surface of the duties of real moderators . Truly a cop out to having to do real work .
And that being a "Jerk" is in the eye of the
beholder kind of thing, rarely will people think their friend is a jerk
or even being a jerk...But are quick to spot "Jerkiness" of people they
don't know or dislike.
True that .
That’s the beauty (and downside) of this
frustrating game. It’s brilliant to be able to converse with people from
across the World. To be able to make friends across the Globe is (the
word mostly used by Americans) AWESOME. In my nearing 5 years playing,
I’ve also encountered some hilarious conversations, some have been
downright disgusting. Not all of them down to me… (you’re supposed to
laugh at that last comment).
Most of that is the good experiences within the game ( chat ) . And PM's and CC mates and MP associates .
I play in the coin rooms and that’s where
inappropriate comments have been chucked in my direction.
Agreed . It's at different levels . Very much like these Forums .
A rule about online engagement has floated
around the internet for a while, called the Rule of Participation
Inequality, or the 90-9-1 Rule. The rule goes something like this:
User participation in any online internet community generally follows
the 90-9-1 rule:
90% of community members are lurkers who read or observe, but don’t
9% of community members edit or respond to content but don’t create
content of their own .
1% of community members create new content ..
We need to change this .
More like an internet rumor , than a rule . No data to support . The numbers are probably way off .
Maybe a female wgt moderator would help the situation .
That would certainly get the "who will have the last word" thread shut down in a hurry.
@PureGro1 - LOL 😂
Shouldn't have to take hiring a female WGT moderator . When there should have been some all along .
You still read it .
Very interesting stuff on there .
