If content is going to be censored, and the opinions of the community cannot be heard. If we have a problem with this then we should leave this problem and move to another one. We the consumer have the most power, and our power comes when we vote with our feet and leave when we dont like something.

Overly dramatic much? There is no mass censorship going on, just the enforcement of rules and people's disregard for them. Community can be heard just fine--so long as it is done in a civilized and constructive manner (an occurrence far too rare on these forums).

Enough. You post in support of everything Blizzard does. Of course you won't have noticed the mass amount of threads being deleted, constructive or not.

True enough.

Oh grow up, cut the nonsense already. You do not know how many threads I post on, or how many of which get deleted. Hell, many threads I post on (one's about bots, cheaters, etc.) where I bring up that they should not be making such post get deleted. I witness quite a lot of threads being deleted, and rightly so.

So drop the childish righteous act already.

So, because some threads that should be deleted are deleted, my point's invalid? Huh? Getting a bit ahead of yourself, champ.

As I said (I'll repeat for you, you don't seem particularly quick on the uptake)

"E.g threads which discuss the aspects of certain games vs D3. How is this not constructive? If a thread's outright advertising another game at D3s expense, of course it should be deleted. But I fail to see how a thread comparing attributes of DIABLO 3 should be deleted in D3s GENERAL FORUMS over a thread discussing your favorite kittens in D3's general forums."

"Often, just because threads have a few non-constructive posts, doesn't mean the entire thread must also be non-constructive."

etc

Any other random, irrelevant arguments to pose?

  • Now the real question is if this thread will get deleted.


    Just saw a good thread from someone discussing how certain aspects of other games would mesh into D3s economy and perhaps fix crafting.

    It was deleted. Twice. For no reason.

    I noticed that one as well, Sal. Happens a lot.

    Noctural has been banned as the result.

    The Moderator even wrote that the first deletion was due to trolls. Nocturnal reacted on this and assumed the moderater did it on purpose - not thinking that the moderator would delete posts without reading them.

    Then the moderator thought the best idea was to ban Nocturnal, but Nocturnal had no other place than the thread to voice his opinion, and the alternative was that he created no thread. Nocturnal does not stop when he knows someone is doing wrong, and saw little sense in reposting without an explanation.

    There is no place to complain about a bad deletion in any reasonable time frame. There is no justice in that sense, it is master rules, and when the master feels frustration is best ended by further deletion and bans, Nocturnal stops using the forums.

    Some of my replys or threads get deleted without word or cause. Just move on an don't repost. Its is what it is.

    Why does is the OP listed as Sal in the General Discussion main page?
    Is this a well known troll trolling on his alt after being banned perhaps?
    Xoh, are you Sal in poor disguise?

    WoW/SC accounts show their D3 name on the main page. :)
    _______________________________________________

    Anyway,
    I have posted a couple of theories on some reasons for deletions, but there are others that I just can't figure out.

    I have seen some threads that are talking about items/gear. Instead of redirecting the thread to the items section, it gets deleted. Threads that are class specific should get redirected to the class section, but most don't. Computer/hardware threads get redirected pretty quick. Some threads get locked with no explanation.

    I have yet to see a 6+ month old necro'd thread get closed.

    It seems it or miss. Somebody doesn't know how to properly moderate.


    You try moderate properly with a community like this, good luck! :P
    The thing that happens is that mods set the bar really low (strict guidelines if you may say) and this also effect the people with good intentions unfortunately, but thats just the way it is. This also applies to law enforcement IRL.
