Eve Forums Haven't Changed


(Clone States) #1

The Dev blog about the new forums said that they were going to be more open and less restrictive. They’re not. Heading to reddit.

Don’t let the door smack you on the ass on your way out.

Q: Why did the Canadian cross the road?
A: He saw some American do it on TV.

@Clone_States

So a seal walks into a club. There a point here or are you just not getting the reaction you wanted? Let’s quit making useless threads.


(Salvos Rhoska) #5

Lol.

Have you ever considered that the problem is you?

Maybe your posting is crap?


(Persephanie Mae) #6

USA USA! USA!!

AMERICA RULES!


(Linus Gorp) #7

Canadians are Americans too, you know.

The United States OF America is a subset of America. It’s in the ■■■■■■■ name, how hard is that to get right?

I have been lurking on them and posting on different chars for years they have changed.
Look the colours are different and we now have discobot.

They aren’t Reddit, because they are a part of CCPs IP so I guess they have got to moderate but…
isn’t the downvote thing on Reddit a form of self moderation.

I was upset when a fun thread on these forums was closed, it had zizek and cat videos and gsf in it, and an op called Anti-Christ who was advocating peace in our time, because I thought it was fun even if a bit trolley, but the mods on these forums have to deal with stuff reddit mods don’t, I mean have you read these forums?

I myself opened a stupid ill thought out thread on the bonus room ffs and I like to think I have a brain- the way people on here behave as opposed to the way they behave on reddit may also have something to do with moderation here- as so many people behave like trolls because they have been trolled so much its a cycle that will take time to break if ever

but I guess the downvote thing on reddit means the community themselves keep the noise level low.

Just out of interest, if you post a thread on reddit ‘should all pvp be banned in high sec’ for instance, what would the response be?
Assume ■■■■ post and move on? Down vote? Just say ‘lol high sec doesn’t matter anyway’? Possibly all more mature and reasonable responses than the mods on here have to deal with-
but these are not any forums
they are the eVe O forums.

people come here to cry as much as discuss and have fun ■■■■ posting, so they get moderated differently.

I mean, who would write a long winded ‘serious’ post like this one on reddit, this post would get down voted for the low content to high word count ratio, and rightly so, and I say that as the person writing it!

So this is what the mods have to deal with.

Hourses for courses I guess.

PS. did you get told off for something or annoyed about a closed thread or something, or just prefer content on Reddit? Genuine question not rhetorical.

So are Mexicans. See what you’ve done?


(Linus Gorp) #10

No. What have I done? Mexicans are just as human as Africans, Canadians, Chinese, Japanese, French, …
So what’s your problem with them?


(Mayhaw Morgan) #11

If you ASSUMED I was saying something derogatory about Mexicans, that shows your own preconception that Mexicans are regarded as a lesser people.

I’m from a city founded by Mexicans. There are Mexicans there. They make jokes. Sometimes the jokes are about Mexicans. People even laugh. Some of those people are even Mexicans.

jajajajajajajajaja (That’s Mexican for “lol”.)


(Linus Gorp) #12

Half the thread consists of “USA USA USA” posts. Knowing what US-Americans think of themselves, your post would have fit the bill perfectly.


(Vortexo VonBrenner) #13


(Mayhaw Morgan) #14

I’m sorry for the misunderstanding and allow me to reassure you that no Mexicans were harmed during the making of my previous comments.
