I like moderators as well as getting laid too.

First whiteknighted post. Well done, Ox.

I guess we gotta play along. This whole subforum is just Fizzer's guinea pig to test out the new system :P

It's... kinda shitty. But at least it's more transparent.

edit: goddamn it this post didn't get cranked

in reality, this system is lovely, take of ALL moderating powers from EVERY moderator and give them only this one, then we got ourselves nigh-dreamish warlight

I'm really loving this, Possible issue over Moderators privacy. Potential conflict but beh Motd blacklists anyone.

Forums are really going to improve and Strategy will be the forums I will check so regulary this enhances the experience of WarLight so much for me personally <3

Would it not be better if the posts got removed fully anyways? Not even showing a "hidden post" just wiping it clear off? I like the concept of letting a reason be known to the person with the removed post why it got removed.

This really gives hope and reassurance that the forums can be made brilliant! Strategy Forums will be the greatest damn thing ever!

I think a awesome solution is that the "Hidden post" should only show up to the person who made that post to let them know why. The public doesn't need to be shown "hidden posts" IMO.

This is proof where it just looks ugly and puts a bad vibe on the thread. Do you feel like posting on that thread? Not really, Would look so much better without the "hidden post" and make it only visable to the user who got its posts deleted.

@1416 - "something arabic which I couldn't be arsed to try and spell"

Strategy is probably the core value of WarLight, So it makes sense to make a individual thread and protecting it with good moderation. If there are bad apples that are posting bad things they are attacking this principle and making the game forums not very fun or enjoyable + bad experience. So I feel people really want a Strategy forum working as much as I personally do. So, Yes I think this is a new moderating system to try and get people to give the forums a chance especially this one!

If you don't want a good Strategy forum, You are either a diplomacy player or you are at the wrong game, It's as simple as that I believe.

Yeah I kind of feel like I made a wrong decision there by eliminating so many posts, but it is also a key issue about the fact that you can post that sporadically, as well as the fact that they got so off-topic so quickly.

Should they be allowed to spam like that? No.

Should the forum look like this? No.

I don't hate you, I just hate the spamming posts you make, also the fact that you have cheated the warlight map rating system and voted "your" map(s) hundreds of times using proxied alts.

I also will not hide your posts unless they are severely off-topic. Like talking about the amount of languages you can fluently speak in a STRATEGY forum.

If you care about privacy you shouldn't be a moderator at all. People need to know clearly who did it. It also helps learning the moderators' ban/kick patterns so they know what they can and can't do. And also helps identifying something very problematic in WarLight, whiteknighting.

Should the forum look like this? No.


Yes it should. It's clear enough and people don't get to see the disruptions. But if you're curious/like reading the person's posts even when unrelated, it's definetely a plus. Completely removing should be for things like extreme insults or REAL spam (constantly sending messages is spam; just saying unrelated stuff is not)

Then you must be on the wrong thread or you have a feel for gossip (What did she/he said)

I counter-argue that when you see a "hidden post" basic human instincts are, that you want to know what it is! As these hidden posts pile up, They will take your attention off the main topic of the thread and instead divert it to un-related off-topic posts. It could provoke a response to these "hidden posts" as 9/10 people will open them, Which is a scenario we don't want I'm sure.
