It seems the filth from GS, Game FAQ's and other sites has seeped into here faster than I thought. There are trolls everywhere.

Are there mods on this site yet? Because they really need them...

#2 Posted by TLT21 (80 posts) -

I really don't think so.....

#3 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

Why did you make two topics about it? And the only moderator that I know of on GiantBomb is CitizenKane.

#4 Posted by sdodd02 (722 posts) -

no, and I hope they pick them soon...

#5 Posted by Lairdo (543 posts) -

There is only one as far as I know, I think the site could do with at least 5.

#6 Posted by MasterSplinter (636 posts) -

There are no moderators right now other than CK and the staff themselves, but I believe this problem will be solved soon.

No need for two topics. What we do need are mods and I think most would agree.

Err, I don't know why it posted twice. It must have bugged or something?

I hope they start modding soon. Some people are annoying.

#11 Posted by mr_korean (610 posts) -

There's only one mod and they're not  doing much patrolling around heres

#13 Posted by Bladefire (214 posts) -

They're probably concentrating on making sure the site is working right, they'll deal with it eventually.

#14 Posted by C_BozkurT_C (60 posts) -

this site will turn into the next gamepro if no mods are elected

#15 Posted by TanKLoveR (333 posts) -

Well there only seem to be one mod and hes not doing a great job.

Swearing is allowed.

we really need some hard nose mods soon or this will become anarchy

#18 Posted by henjin (829 posts) -

I think there are no mods on here.
Swearing is allowed, as this forum really isnt towards the family like gamespot is....

#19 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

I'm going to assume there is no moderating tools yet, because there are no reporting tools yet.

#20 Posted by Metal_Mills (3049 posts) -

God, I'd be a mod even just a temp one to stop the bloody trolling. This forum is like if GS had no mods at the moment.

#21 Posted by mr_korean (610 posts) -

All we can do on these forums is rate how good/bad peoples posts are and shield them from view kinda like Youtube's spam options

Come on people, it is not so bad. Earlier today things were really messy, but things have kind of settled down since then. We can handle ourselves can't we?

A guy creating a topic about how big your penis is, and somebody posting naked pictures of a guy covered in feces is not so bad? Imposters on GB, that is not so bad?

Off-topic and General are packed with spam and trolling. It hasn't settled down.

And no we can't handle ourself. Its like a grade 5 class room when the teacher leaves for a moment. The kids go berserk.
#25 Posted by MoldOnHold (627 posts) -

Every now and then I see messages that say "deleted by the mods". Which is funny because it doesn't seem to stop the spam.

#26 Posted by BiffMcBlumpkin (3720 posts) -

That message appears when you delete your own post, so that's what you're seeing probably.

The reason I like NeoGAF so much is the strict moderation.  I don't want this place to turn into crazy-ville.  Hopefully they develop a strong mod policy to clean up the riff raff.

#28 Posted by Why_So_Serious (803 posts) -

There are currently not any. There will be soon though I hope. The countless "sexy" threads by that one guy and DaWhiteAsian (finally was banned) are getting on my nerves.

Yeah, considering the fact there is no moderation, I think it is not so bad. I've seen way worse on sites that have moderation in full effect. Also, you don't have to read those threads, you know. As a matter of fact, I've been here all day and haven't seen a single disturbing picture yet.
That said, it's just a matter of time before all the mess will be cleaned up by the new mods. Just have some patience.

Agreed. There are some annoyances but nothing extreme yet. No porn has been posted and no one besides Asian has crossed the line.

So I'm guessing mods can't lock topics yet, but they can delete any post as long as it isn't the TC first post.
