i know we're a looooooooong ways off from ending up that bad, but i was just wondering how many of you are a wee bit afraid that things will descend that badly quickly if a lot of mods arent created soon

dont get me wrong, i like 4chan a lot. but i cant stand that kinda crap all the time. sometimes i feel like posting about things in a more intelligent matter on a site far away from goatse

#2 Posted by spiceninja (3063 posts) -

It was inevitable that if would happen sooner or later. Getting mods is a good thing.

#3 Posted by MrMiyagi (929 posts) -

It's not that bad so far other than the "You fap you lose" threads...
 I doubt GB will turn into another Chan.
BOMBCHAN LOLOL.

#4 Posted by MoldOnHold (627 posts) -

No it's not that bad. We have what, 7 mods now? They've been locking threads like nobody's business..... and they don't have full mod tools yet.

I don't think you have to worry about 4chan standards here.

#5 Posted by Bennyishere (1685 posts) -

I don't think it's close to being that bad, so I'm not really worried.

#6 Posted by MB (12730 posts) -

Just because the forums aren't being run with an iron fist doesn't mean there aren't  moderators watching.

yea, i guess you're right
#8 Posted by Oriental_Jams (3063 posts) -

Hopefully we will always have better standards than that site.

#9 Posted by epic_pets (1339 posts) -

we need about 5 more mods

#10 Posted by twenty0ne (3071 posts) -

The fact that there's no ToU scares me...

#11 Posted by RobKenno (99 posts) -

Ahhhh 4Chan personally responsable for me learning about the birds and the bees ha ha

No, we don't.  The forums are largely hands off at this point, we want to see what the community will do and let them run with it, to a certain extent.

Its not going to become 4chan, theres mods here now.

#14 Posted by samcotts (2258 posts) -

Some members can't be trusted with the freedom. We definitely need some rules, and I think the mods should be stricter. It's not ideal, but I'd much have a mature forum then one ruled by immature spammers.

thats not really that hard

the way i see it, 4chan isnt just made up of people posting without rules, its actually made up of a special demographic. actually, its kinda creepy how like minded so many people there are. like on /v/ basically everyone is in agreement about what games they like. the only people who disagree are just flaming. hell, even when the users describe their lives they're all very similar

i'd know, i'm part of that demographic.
#16 Posted by The_Dude (798 posts) -

I don't think GB will fall that low, but I do hope that there are some more mods set into place soon. I am glad that some of the really bad stuff got cleaned up, that guy that was posting all the obscene stuff in the first few hours...I already forget his name, but he was just rediculous!

#17 Posted by y0z1 (34 posts) -

I dont mind that the forum is not beeing run with an iron fist.

#18 Posted by OroJackson (680 posts) -

yea, I don't that the mods will let us end up that bad

btw you just broke Rule #1 and Rule #2

#19 Posted by TimesHero (699 posts) -

As long as I don't come to GB and see a kitten in a blender, I'm happy.

How would more mods make things different than they are now?  There could be twice as many mods and the same topics would still exist...the users make the community, not us.  We're just here to take care of the people that are acting like little bitches.

Atleast GiantBomb isn't the victim of a DDoS attack

Apparantly it wasn't a DDoS attack.  The FBI put trackers in the 4chan Data Base.  Which I don't mind because CP is wrong.

I can't even tell if you're serious or not. Regardless, I highly doubt it
#24 Posted by Hungry_bunny (421 posts) -

There are a few more mods now, aren't there? And that doesn't scare me at all, I'm pretty sure that the staff would rather close the forums indefinitely than let that happen.

#25 Posted by mybigpose (162 posts) -

atleast were not getting suspended for talking abt sexual diseases.

i swear, this guy was asking abt HIV and all he got suspended.
while a thread abt smashing ur head into a ur keyboard to see what comes out exists.
#26 Posted by UncleD (41 posts) -

I don't think it is THAT bad.

CP is banned there. Just because a few idiots post it rarely doesn't mean the FBI can close it.

...can they? And if so why the hell isn't 12chan closed? That's a full pedo forum, or so I've heard.

They can't. It's just 4chan kids pretending they are important in something
#29 Posted by Ultimate_pwr_rngr (774 posts) -

4chan has exceptionally high standards.

#30 Posted by Colonel_Cool (808 posts) -

I don't think we'll have to worry about that.

#31 Posted by lucas_kelly (769 posts) -

I would prefer it to be like 4Chan rather than everything be censored.

#32 Posted by TanKLoveR (333 posts) -

It hasnt come to that just yet :? and i dont think it will. The mods have been doing a really good job cleaning the site of all the spam and trolls. We just need ppl to follow the rules and stop ruining it for the rest of us who actually follow the guidelines.

#33 Posted by Batman (1016 posts) -

Most of the community here doesn't want that, so I don't believe it will be let to get that bad.

#34 Posted by FuzzyFace56 (43 posts) -

I think its fine the way it is....as long as there isn't porn and nothing distasteful and gory it should be allowed. As long as it isn't spam and its obvious the original poster inst being a complete idiot/trying to get banned it should be allowed aswell.

#35 Posted by JethroVegas (93 posts) -

I think this place is doing really well.

The current system is working fine.

#36 Posted by TylerM (8 posts) -

7chan, 12chan, 4chan, anonib and 2chan are where we should send people that are mentally ill. It will balance them out.

#37 Posted by FuzzYLemoN (1600 posts) -

DUDE, you're not supposed to say it's name...

#38 Posted by Karmum (11519 posts) -

This place is not even close to that level. There is some common sense here, at least.

#39 Posted by clubsandwich (3795 posts) -

I Iove 4chan, and GB won't ever turn Iike 4chan

#40 Posted by unclejohnny79 (685 posts) -

Yeah we are a long way from that

But 4 chan gets 8 million page views per day. Huh, wonder if we'll ever get that many.

#43 Posted by mr_korean (610 posts) -

I really don't think GB will will ever have to worry about succumbing to 4chans standards

#44 Posted by Absurd (2934 posts) -

Jeff would do something about it!

I don't think we ever have to worry about the deepest depths of hell. : |

#47 Posted by EndlessMike (518 posts) -

I think we're fine. I like their approach because the less moderation and officialism and the more free speech the better. Gotta keep out the assholes that just feel like spamming porn threads but I think this approach makes it have that more informal feel I really like.

#48 Posted by henjin (829 posts) -

Well, first of all we have mods. Second, as we can all tell from certain spammers, we don't take kindly to them. Therefore, no.

#49 Posted by Termite (2398 posts) -

It's nowhere near as bad as 4chan yet, and we're getting new mods

Don't worry

#50 Posted by Taalon (112 posts) -

How do I apply to be a mod? I'd love to help out.
