I know that everyone likes to think that, because GB currently has no moderation in place for the forums, that people can run their mouths and talk about anything and everything. Off-topic is off-topic but that's no reason for there to be threads about feminine hygiene and swearing just because you can. I'm not saying that I'm fully against things like this, I think swearing is totally fine but shouldn't be used in a forum just because you can. This is just me rambling but I hope I can vouch for at least a couple other people.

If people want to swear then let them swear.  Don't get your panties in a bunch.

Agreed. People need to go through the precautions they would on any forum. Use the search feature, check to see if your topic has been created or not. Use the help tools, so you'll know where to find your console specific forum. No more trolling or spam.
I really hope people can learn to control themselves, or we get more mods soon.

I do believe this place needs a little more moderation at the moment... But strict moderation is far from necessary.

I think it's just post-launch euphoria. Things'll die down in a week or so I would say. Certainly won't have 8,000 people registering ever day, that's for sure.

But if you're not a fan of the craziness in OT and GG, head off to a specialzed board and lurk there for a little while. They're nice and quiet.

I may not ever swear, but other people swearing is not my problem, nor a problem I have with the site. What I'm angry about is the countless numbers of duplicate topics, as well as topics that or unnecessary and should be deleted. We need the trash taken out.

The more organised they make the forums the easier they would be to moderate and require less moderators. In the forums current setup no amount of moderators will ever be enough due to the possibility of having forums for every inanimate object in every game etc. The very least they could do to make their jobs easier would be to put a RTM button on each post.

Amen, i agree with other peoples sentiments too, its probably just the buzz around the website launch at the minute, the kids will calm down after a week, at least i hope.

I agree, so many duplicated threads and whatnot, wish I was a mod just so I can iron all these threads out, to much of the same.

Light moderation makes for fun forums. :D

Strict moderation also works, e.g., FacePunchStudios Forums, but that takes a dedicated team of moderators.

I think that feminine hygiene topics are a bit too much, but swearing doesn't bother me.
Everyone just needs to use common sense on what to post and what not to post.

I think this site should stay far away from very strict moderation, if anything it should be a nice relaxing place where if one wants to can swear, but not to go ballistic. Off-topic is off-topic, if they want to talk about "Feminine Hygiene" they so be it, I mean it is off-topic for a reason. So far I haven't seen anything abnormal or crazy on the forums, although some people are taking the whole swearing privilege a little to hard. Remember it is a privilege and not a right to be allowed to swear, I'm all for it, for people to express their emotions/feelings, but don't use it just because you can, I guess I do agree with you there jvpde.

"..if you have to" is my point. Like I said, I'm all for swearing but not just because you can. I like to assume that we're not all 7 years old here.

I for one advocate an increase in feminine hygiene discussion on video game websites. It is sorely an underrepresented topic.

I don't mind if people curse at all, it's part of their vocabulary. What are ya gonna do? The only thing I hate is the bashing of people. That's really annoying.

well the feminine hygiene thread wasnt that bad in concept
it gave potential readers fair warning before entering and the topic creator voiced his opinion in a sane and reasonable manner
your personal ability to face such topics does not fall under the responsibility of the TC if he/she is being mature about it

as for the overuse of swearing
tune that back and only use it where it seems necessary or at least dont cuss like a 10 yr old who starts swearing to sound cool as soon as an adult is out of ear shot

Things will stabilize eventually into some form of normalcy.  I am kind of enjoying this first burst of craziness though.  The inmates are running the asylum, and aside from a few idiots its a beautiful thing.

Some mods are a necessarily thing, hopefully the staff will give them just enough power to actually moderate and strip them of status if they turn into an ass or don't do there job, I'm all for freedom of opinion and using whatever words you want to describe something but a little bit of moderation keeps things tidy.

I think the only things that should be moderated are hate comments, flaming, and then things like topics about racism and religion.

Swearing and such doesn't need to be modded.

Once they build up their army of moderators, I'm sure all those punks will get the bomb dropped on them sooner or later.  For now, just ignore it.  Remember, if you reply in a troll thread, it just bumps it up to the top.

To much freedom attracts idiots (as far as forums go)... But if thats how they want to keep it here im fine with that, I been around forums long enough to tell the boys from the men (hardly any girls).... I think alot of people are aiming to be mods on this site... Dont act a fool, for those who want mod spots.
