Set up by a few people who noticed a lot of heavy moderation in the current reddit. It is not intended as a replacement subreddit but obviously if you have problems getting stuff posted you have another place to go.
A lot of the communications out of these forums seems to be controlled by a small group of people, this might allow for more diversity in the thinking on Eve.
Hope it is useful for those who feel there has been a bit of a problem.
I remember like 13 years ago they went around and banned everyone for being a ganker/wardeccer/pirate. Not for breaking any rules or saying bad things, but just for admitting to being one of those players in posts. Those were good times.
Neckbeards eat Cheetos and chug Mountain Dew. And the only thing they hype is not needing to have a real life girlfriend when there are perfectly good waifu body pillows available for next day delivery.
You just need to look at the 12 or 13 rules on r/eve and you can see that there is a big enough list to allow people to ban on the basis of ‘taste’ or they just don’t like you. Eveuncut will definitely need moderators.
If it proves useful it will survive. If it does not it will die. Let’s see if there is really a need for it!
Or you could ask yourself how existing moderation rules regulate the definition of the game, reduce it to a few formulaic patterns and reject any other approach or perspective. When this happens the possibilities for the game become formulaic, reduced and boring. I have seen MMO servers die when this kind of staleness develops.
Diversity and the love of the new are what keeps MMO’s going.
I joined r/EveUncut today as a protest action against shadow-banning and gang-up moderation.
I was on the Taleworlds forum last year and I got banned because of a couple senior members who kept trolling me. Anyone who read that thread could see that I was taunted and they disrespected my person but they didn’t get banned, only I got banned. Not fair.
But I learned something important that day.
