I come from a community of hard-asses, I'm tired of being forced to leave for days

Let's clear this up :P

#2 Posted by Sinphinity (5 posts) -

Where the fuck are the rules? :/

#3 Posted by Bladefire (214 posts) -

All the Giant Bomb guys are pretty lax so I don't think you'll have to worry.

#4 Posted by Yunvon (120 posts) -

I do not think there is any rules right now, but I am sure there might be some coming soon.  Have to keep law and order somehow....right?

#5 Posted by Toriko (82 posts) -

This makes me a happy mofucka'

That site would have banned my by now

#6 Posted by FFJosh (10 posts) -

I doubt you'll see many rules at all.



And half the rules will likely have something to do with pizza.

#7 Posted by SpaceInsomniac (3555 posts) -

Hopefully strict enough to keep people from trolling and otherwise ruining the forum.  Larger boards tend to require stricter moderation, otherwise everything goes to hell.  Just look at the gametrailers forums for an example of just how awful highly lenient moderation can make a forum.

#8 Posted by Delsaber (198 posts) -

Hopefully this place will be well moderated without being overbearing. I doubt it'll end up like GameSages was back in the day, thankfully.


...I just dated myself there, didn't I? I'm old, gimme gimme gimme!
#9 Posted by Toriko (82 posts) -

Well, keep the trolls out but let us have freedom

Sounds good...

#10 Posted by MB (11956 posts) -

This type of thing takes awhile to work out.  I see the profanity filter isn't very strict, if there even is one at all.  I'd like to see active moderation taking care of the real asshats but at the same time not be too overbearing.  I'm sure it'll all turn out fine.

I would imagine there will be moderation and rules at some point, but i doubt they will be ass strong as most other gaming related sites.

I hope we call all be as silly as we want..

Nobody take it too far, and everything will be ok.. I think. XD

#13 Posted by Batman (1016 posts) -

I fear I may be close to getting banned on GS, so I'll probably be frequenting here more.

#14 Posted by Yunvon (120 posts) -

Ya, as you are all saying need to keep people from fucking the site up.

#15 Posted by thelastguy (356 posts) -

I guess we will see...

#16 Posted by Begemot (108 posts) -

Fuck yeah! Which reminds me, fuck gamespot.

Haha FF Josh. Pizza and Sandwiches!

#21 Posted by banksrob (1126 posts) -

yea however it will have to be moderated heavily from fan boys which can change say a page for the ps3 to say crap or something

#22 Posted by Pikachu (449 posts) -

I think the admins will only be strict if the users decide to not follow the rules and break them consistantly

#23 Posted by xplodedd (1316 posts) -

how come there is no riot in session or anything like that?

#24 Posted by banksrob (1126 posts) -

yea basically every site has people which want to cause destruction and such and therefore there has to be moderation to  a certain degree, but yea most of us should be albe to say what we feel it correct

#25 Posted by RowdyRob (206 posts) -

An admin posted a thread on the Super Mario World board entitled, "Shit" so I'm sure they won't be too strict =P

But was that really an admin is the question o_O

#26 Posted by Flaze (8 posts) -

If your username can be "fuck" I don't they'll be very strict...

#27 Posted by Doofa (23 posts) -

I just hope this forum doesn't turn into a crappy spam fest of flamers and trolls.  As for the moderation, I think the regulars of each board should be able to exercise some self moderation from time to time. 

#28 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

There is a guy with the username Fuck?

He wins the internet

#29 Posted by iamsickofspam (111 posts) -

I think this place will be pretty liberal, obviously the admin guys will keep the spammers at bay, other than that id expect its just general forum rules really, no deliberate abuse of other posters, I'm sure everybody will just exercise common sense, but with this being the internet that's probably not going to happen for the slight 1% of idiots who spoil forums for everybody else, After a few days it'll calm down with the the excitement of new forums, Probably be lively here for a few weeks, at least that's what i expect.

If the majority treat other forum posters as they would like to be treated, mostly everybody will be fine. Best to just ignore the flamers, trolls and spammers and let the admin dudes deal with the assholes.

i agree with you, a spam filled forum is not good for anyone

#36 Posted by banksrob (1126 posts) -

yea but it kind of lost its touch when all of the decent presenters and reviewers left a.k.a the ones that made this site

#37 Posted by Xero (159 posts) -

just use common sense and you will be fine

If you fuck up, they will personally come to your house, break your legs, and smash your stuff with baseball bats.
