when the community starts to become negative


If this is the case, we should responses constantly, every single day.
I'm not exactly sure what you would want them to do. It sounds like you're trying to pin them into a catch-22 situation where you come out looking great and they come off as awful at their jobs.

The reality is that they have been posting more frequently here and on reddit. They are more lax and jovial. It is apparent that they are putting a lot of effort into coming across as approachable as possible. What's wrong with bringing in a little sunshine to brighten the place up a bit?

What are they supposed to say if the forums were nothing but positive? "Thanks, we appreciate it"?
that's what they post anyway. they only show up in the positive threads (which is a good thing).

perhaps they're more likely to post in a positive thread when it's surrounded 9 negative threads, to draw attention to the nice one.
I'm still hanging around. Chilling out, maxing, relaxing all cool.

Even if we don't reply to every thread, we're still reading them. If we see a thread that would benefit from our presence, we will definitely pop in. :)

As for the moderation, there isn't anything sinister going on. We're just trying to make sure the forums are running smoothly. We have our guidelines posted as a sticky if you have any questions on what kind topics risk removal. http://us.battle.net/sc2/en/forum/topic/85998600

Most threads benefit from blizzard's blue text. Even the 1093832 threads that all ready have a known blizzard stance.

What I mean is that every time somebody QQ's about force field that means somebody in that thread is not aware that blizzard feels force field is seen as a beneficial and intended mechanic.

Or that storm is also similarly seen as a balanced and beneficial and intended spell that is quite all right as far as blizzard is concerned.

Or that macro mechanics such as chronoboost and larva inject or mules are judged to be not on the table for re-balancing.

A lot of posts come from ignorance (not a horrible thing). I wish there was more enlightenment dished out by the CM's :D

They probably sit around drinking bears and lol'ing while reading the threads.


Usually it's a Panda kinda day.. when it gets real tough though, we go full grizzly.


You messed up man.... you never go full grizzly. I love quoting Tropic Thunder, sorry, couldn't help it xD

It was just a week or two ago you have been anounced as a saviour of these forums. For 2 days you were active and now you are just "hanging around" :-) . That tells a bit :-)
protoss is fine Kappa
