    It's ridiculous that I even need to do this but shit has been getting out of hand again.

    First off, let me link the rules of OT as a whole.

    http://forums.offtopic.com/showthread.php?t=2026137

    Specifically, I will point to two items noted in the Tier 1 section

    On posts alone, this is the 3rd largest sub-forum of OT. For the most part, despite that fact, you guys make the job of modding this forum very easy. In fact, it was easy enough that I was under the impression that I could step back for a while and let things just run themselves so to speak. Apparently, this was not the case. As many have pointed out, the fanboy trolling in this forum got more and more out of hand as time went on.

    The sticky helped but obviously it did not fix everything.

    So I'm laying out some rules that apparently we should have laid out a long time ago.


    1) Keep the console trolling to the flame/clusterfuck thread.

    A couple notes to add to and clarify that. If you're posting simply to troll about how one console is better than another than it should go in that thread. This applies to threads you start and posts you make in someone else's thread.

    Every month or quarter, someone typically starts a thread covering which system sold more units. This is relevant data that deserves it's own thread and therefore is one exception to this rule.

    There are also posts about new features and the like. Not everyone is going to like Natal for instance, but saying 'Natal sucks' is a lot different then saying 'this faggot shit is why PS3 rules'. Seriously, if you can't figure out the difference between the two then just stick to the flame thread.

    This also is much less stringent in regards to threads about specific games. Not everyone likes the games you do. Leave it in that thread though and don't postwhore it over and over again.​

    If shit gets too out of hand in this regard going forward then the mods, supermods or fazle will take the appropriate action. This can include various things including thread locks or deletions, or bans from the subforum or OT as a whole.



    2) As much as possible, try to keep to one thread per game.


    Specific questions get lost in larger threads, so starting a new thread for quick things like that is understandable. In most cases these will be locked or merged into the other thread as the issues are settled. ​

    That's pretty much it.

    Keep in mind. I'm around a lot now, so if you have a need to reach me for whatever reason, (questions/snitching/sticky requests) send me a PM.

    I'm leaving this open for now for suggestions/questions/discussion.





    Ah forget it. keep your gigantor threads.

    This is to specifically set down groundwork in order to take that action in the future if necessary. Not for him uniquely but everyone as a whole.

    For the most part 99% of the posters in here don't ever cause any sort of an issue. It's just that the 1% has been a lot more noticeable lately.

    :cool:

    Btw, moderating has been on the ball lately :bigthumb:












    Don't ban me bro.



    Have you asked the Main Smods about the constant moving of shitty threads into here? Would seem better to lock those threads with the last post being a relevant thread link in here. But I guess it's too much effort and will still get ignored :sad2:

    Yeah I bitched about it in the mod corner. I was pushing for MW2 to be the new hotness so we could just dump it all in there.

    Most of the supermods seem to have a tight focus on the main and one or two other forums. I can't say much on that though, I was the same way.

    old man santa to the rescue!

    I think this is a good move to make Gp a little bit more respectable for outsiders and people in the industry. We have some of them around every once in a while and stupid shit just doesnt look good.

    Problem is when you do that everyonce in a while you will miss a main game thread that they somehow started.

    How am I supposed to make a thread when most of these faggots are going to automatically accuse me of trolling.

    Take last night's thread about XBOX LIVE and ads. They went straight against me. :hsugh:

    The funniest part was you making the same thread months ago and acting surprised each time you made it.

    Considering the content of the video and the discussion it was bound to produce, that should have been left in the clusterfuck thread.

    Because everytime, they keep adding more non-gaming shit, hence the shock.

    It would be nice if they would add dedicated servers or stuff like that.

    :werd: last thread just had fake mockups.

    If Xbox Live users were really bothered don't you think it would be the Xbox Live members complaining? :hsugh:

    And yes it was just usual clusterfuck, my shit is bigger than yours crap.
