Re: Where have all the forummers gone?

Jan 6, 2011

Fresh, don't even bother. Let the people be. They like being spoon fed. Whether they suffer, or not. (lol) Trying to make these people see the light is like the old saying --

"You can lead a horse to water, but you cannot make the horse drink."

-- As sad as that trully is here in the case of the forums. As soon as a moderator posts. It's all "Thank you's", and shining smiles. It's like the frat plegde asking -- "Thank you, Sir! May I have another?!" -- that is how these people act. The moderators, and adminastration could seriously slap someone in the face, laugh, and spit on them while they lay there crying, and they'd get back up, and forgive them if he apologised five seconds later. (lol) Society. Makes me laugh sometimes if it wasn't so, sad.

Actually they have a lot to do with each other. In some cases, if not all, they are the same people. .

In the past no, but things have changed. Home mods are now moderating the forums as well.

And the forum mods are relaying the info that *we* the community give them.

Edit. tdarb looked up the relevant post before I could. Nice job, tdarb.

those are Home mods moderating the Home forum.

the forum mods, the ones who work for Jive and moderate the entire board, are the ones who matter.(no offense to the Home mods. XD)

I hate the new forums. They should revert back to the old one where navigation was so much easier.

If the mods learned how to do their job and make a good and USABLE site, then we'd all be happy.

But no.

this forum is actually better, i made my own html code to make it look like the old forum. you have a lot of fancy ajax stuff that are pretty neat the only problem is the lack of ergonomic

Some great discussions here. Thanks everyone for your patience, as we continue to work on fixing up these new forums.

In case you haven't read it yet, there was a fairly lengthy update from Locust_Star posted earlier today:

http://community.us.playstation.com/thread/3396387

// Questions about Moderation in Home? Please read my Moderation FAQ first ~ MercuryV. //

What do you mean, "continue"?  I haven't seen much of anything get done here since I last looked a week ago (or, for that matter, since pretty much day 1).  The profanity filter still filters out words like "f.a.i.l", for god's sake.  How long do these incompetent people need to remove words from a list in their own software?

Or else... maybe... d'you think... there's no intention of fixing these things?  Nah, couldn't be!

And, frankly, L_S's post was a self-serving insult to my intelligence.  I wouldn't point it out to angry people if I were you.
